Ramadan is the ninth month of the Islamic calendar observed by Muslims worldwide as a month of fasting, prayer, reflection, and community.

Eid Al-Fitr also marks the beginning of the Islamic month of Shawwal as it falls on the first day of Shawwal. 

The holiday is distinguished by a particular prayer that consists of two rakats (parts) which will only be performed in congregation and features additional seven takbirs (raising of the hands to the ears while saying “Allāhu Akbar).

The next holiday after Eid Al-Fitr will be Arafat Day and is expected to be on Tuesday, June 27.
