Zuma wishes Muslims well for Eid al-Fitr

Zuma wishes Muslims well for Eid al-Fitr”

In a statement issued by the Presidency, Zuma said: "We join our Muslim compatriots to celebrate the end of Ramadan, the Islamic holy month of fasting, and we wish all Muslims, Eid Mubarak".

During this time, Muslims refrain from eating and drinking from sunrise to sunset. Additionally, local and national Muslim leaders or prominent Muslims would be invited to attend.

Unlike Eid al-Adha (which focuses on meat delicacies), Eid-al-Fitr is celebrated with traditional desserts and is also called Meethi Eid. This is a tradition that has been taking place since 1999.

In the spirit of Eid-el-Fitr, the cardinal message is that although Eid-el-Fitr signifies the end of Ramadan, the doctrines of moderation, avoidance of excessive consumption, piety, regular supplication to Allah and being a brother's keeper subsist always beyond the Ramadan.

Celebrations traditionally begin with Chand Raat, the evening before the day of Eid, when people go for Eid shopping. "The favour of an answer is asked".

The reason for the late start is that there was a Tunisian envoy present.

The occasion was the presence of a Tunisian envoy to the United States, Sidi Soliman Mellimelli, who had arrived in the country just the week before, in the midst of America's ongoing conflict with what were then known as the Barbary States.

Historians argue whether this was officially an iftar dinner, but as it was a meal that allowed the Honorable Mellimelli to break his Ramadan fast, the answer seems clear that it was.

Last year, then-presidential candidate Donald Trump told ABC News' Jonathan Karl in an interview that he would be open to continuing the tradition of hosting an Iftar dinner if he were in the White House.

"On behalf of the American people, I would like to wish all Muslims a joyful Ramadan". After completion of the holy month of fasting, Muslims are able to gauge their improved spiritual condition as a result of one's devotion, conduct, prayers and divine favours received during that period.

The festival marks the culmination of the month-long fasting in the holy month of Ramadan.

One of the most important days for Muslims, this is the "festival of breaking the fast".
