Id al-Fitr, meaning "breaking of the fast" is one of the two main holidays in Islam, along with Id al-Adha. It brings to a close a month during which devout Muslims fast from sunrise to sunset.
Id al-Fitr is considered to be a day of peace and fellowship. It is marked by special prayers, which are carried out in a large quorum. Celebrations then begin, and it is customary to visit family and friends.
