Eid al-Fitr is one of the most important Islamic festivals. Ramadan, the holy month of fasting, comes to an end with the festival. Eid begins at sunset on the night of the crescent moon's first sighting, and if the moon is not visible after the 29th day of the previous lunar month, Eid is celebrated the next day. The festival is marked by grandeur as well as a belief in charity, as people donate new and used belongings to those in need, encapsulating the festival's spirit.
