Heralded by the first sighting of the crescent moon, Eid-al-fitr, which translates into “Feat of Breaking the Fast”, begins at sunset and sees Muslims around the world ending the month-long fast of Ramadan. Following a specific Islamic prayer called a “salat”, it is customary to engage in the consumption of a sumptuous Eid feast, as well as the donation of money to those in need.
