Things to do on Eid

The special acts of the month of Ramadhaan (fasting) terminate with the coming of Eid. The first day of Shawwaal is called Eid-ul-Fitr and the tenth day of Zilhijjah is called Eid-ul-Adhhaa. These two Eids are of great rejoicing for the Muslims.

On the day of Eid-ul-Fitr 13 things are Sunnah:

  1. To adorn oneself as permitted by Shari'at.
  2. To take a bath.
  3. To clean the teeth with Miswaak.
