After a month-long fast, Muslims across the globe will be looking forward to celebrating the end of Ramadan with the annual Eid al-Fitr festival.
The celebrations will take place at the first sighting of the moon at some point across the next few days, with Muslims in Britain set to celebrate from tonight, 23 May.
If you have friends, family or neighbours celebrating, you can say Eid Mubarak – which means ‘blessed festival (or feast).’
But what else can you say to celebrate or mark the special significance of Eid al-Fitr?
Eid al-Fitr greetings, and quotes to celebrate
Litanzil ‘alaykum barakat Allah fi Eid al-Fitr hatha – May God’s blessings be showered on you on this Eid al-Fitr
May God give you happiness of heaven above. Happy Eid Mubarak To You All.
May this special day bring peace, happiness and prosperity to everyone. Eid Mubarak
May Allah blessings be with you today, tomorrow and always. Eid Mubarak
If someone says Eid Mubarak to you, it is polite to respond by saying ‘Khair Mubarak’.
You could also reply with ‘Jazak Allah Khair’ which means ‘May Allah reward you with goodness.’
