Eid el Fitr

Eid elfitr is a festival marking the end of the holy month of Ramadhan, the Islamic month of fasting and praying to Allah. Eid-el- fitr is by far the most prominent of all festivals in Zanzibar, it is observed by praying, family reunion and feast and exchanging presents. The majority of Zanzibari sad here to the teachings of Ramadhan which encourage both physical and spiritual restraint, people refrain from eating and drinking from dawn to dusk and Muslims stay away from dancing and clubbing. Eid-el-fitr is looked forward to by everyone in Zanzibar; for the devotees it is the completion of a very important pillar of Islam, for others it is time to eat, drink and smoke as and when they please. For kids it is time to get a treat from their parents and just an opportunity to wear their best, bright and new clothes. Eid-e l- fitr is undoubtedly the most colorful festival in Zanzibar.
