Eid al Fitr, or celebration of breaking fast. Ramadan has come and gone, and these auspicious days are still a period of reflection and contemplation. Hopefully, the days of Ramadan have instilled all Muslims with empathy for the poor, charity, worship, steadfastness and patience.

It is a customary duty during the last few days of Ramadan, to pay alms to the poor, Zakat al Fitr, which plays a very important role in the development of the bonds of community. The rich are obliged to come in direct contact with the poor, and the poor are put in contact with the extremely poor, it teaches those who have, to be generous to those who do not have.

The amount of Zakat is the same for everyone, approximately between 2.6 Kg to 3 Kg of food, grain or dried fruit for each member of the family, or their monetary equivalent (currently set at 1-1.5KD per person).

Muslims are also encouraged on this day to forgive and forget any differences or past animosities that may have occurred with others during the year.

Typically, Muslims wake up relatively early in the morning—always before sunrise— to offer prayer.

May you all have a blessed vacation.
