The Eid Festivals in the Islamic Calendar

Eid Festivals

Eid is the Muslim festival, which they celebrate twice in an Islamic year. The Islamic year is basically according to the Lunar Calendar. In one year Muslims observe the first Eid after the ninth month of the year, on 1st Shawwal, and the second one on the 10th Zil-Hijjah, which is the 12th and the last month of the Islamic Calendar. 
Both of the months are highly blessed due to their sanctity and rank in the Islamic History. The revelation of Quran mainly takes place during the month of Ramadan. It is the blessed month in which Muslims hold fast from dawn to the sunset.
 These fasts are among the basic pillars of the religion. In the month of Ramadan, Muslim prefers to perform the Umrah of the Kaaba. For the safe and easy travel they book the Umrah packages from around the globe. The first Eid, which is Eid al Fitar is succeeded by  the Ramadan, and it is on the 1st of the 11th month, Shawwal.

After two months and nine or ten days of the Eid al Fitar, the second great event of the Islamic Calendar takes place. On the 10th day of the 12th month, Zil Hijjah, the Eid al Adha commenced for the Muslims. As of the Eid al Fitar, Eid al Adha also succeeded by the important event and the pillar of the Islam, the pilgrimage. Muslims arrive Makkah for the pilgrimage and they book the Hajj packages to make their voyage convenient for them.
