Ramadan & Your Responsibilities

"O ye who believe! Fasting is prescribed for you, as it was prescribed for those before you, so that you may become righteous...and for those who are able to fast only with great difficulty is an expiation — the feeding of a poor man, providing they have the capacity to do so.

Fun Facts!

One interesting thing about Eid ul-Fitr is that its date changes every year. This is because Eid follows the Islamic lunar calendar, which relies on the sighting of the new moon to determine the start of each month. Unlike the regular calendar we use, which is based on the sun, the Islamic calendar is based on the phases of the moon. So, Eid al-Fitr can fall on different days depending on when the new moon is spotted, making it a bit of a surprise each year!

Eid ul-Fitr is known by various names around the world. In Indonesia, it's called "Lebaran," while in Pakistan and India, it's known as "Choti Eid" (Small Eid) in contrast to Eid al-Adha, which is known as "Bari Eid" (Big Eid)
