The end of the Ramadan marks the beginning of the 'Eid-ul-Fitr' or 'Eid of Fitr' also known as 'Ramadan Eid'. Eid occurs on the first day of the Shawwal, the tenth month of Islamic calendar. According to the history of Islam and traditions, on the last day of Ramadan after sunset, people start sighting the crescent moon. As soon as the moon (hilal) is spotted the celebrations for the Eid-ul-Fitr popularly known as the "Festival of Breaking of the Fast" begins for all the Muslims.
• It is believed that holy book Quran was revealed to prophet Muhammad during this month. It is believed that during this month the gates of hell are closed and the gates of heaven are open.
• Another event which took place during the month of Ramadan was the battle of Badr, the battle between the inhabitants of Mecca and Medina.
• It's the month to thank Allah for that he has given to human being. During daylight all the Muslims devote themselves to pray to Allah. Once the crescent moon is sighted it s the time to break the fast and get over with the Ramadan month and celebrate Eid-ul-Fitr.
