What is Eid'l Fitr?
Eid al-Fitr is an important Islamic festival that celebrates the end of Ramadan—the holy month of fasting. During Ramadan, Muslims must fast from dawn to sunset each day, meaning they can only eat in the morning and at night. Eid al-Fitr is the first time Muslims can eat during daylight hours after fasting for the entirety of Ramadan. That’s why it’s fitting that Eid al-Fitr means “the breaking of the fast” in Arabic.
What should this Eid'l Fitr mean to the non-Muslims?
To the non-Muslims or Christians, it is to be a time of peace, friendship, tolerance, cultural collaboration, and understanding of Islam and their community, something that Christians can enjoy too!
It is a day for everyone to rejoice. We love each of our brothers and sisters in humanity, regardless of religion; therefore we have every reason to join each other in happiness and in celebration.
Islam preaches peace, progress cannot be made without promoting good relations with neighbors.
Alpha Phi Omega strongly believes in the peaceful coexistence of all beings irrespective of their beliefs & religions.
