The Koran, The
holy book of the Muslims, came down from heaven to the earth one night during the last ten
days of this month. When the holy book came, the whole of creation praised Allah or God.
At the end of this month comes Id. It is celebrated on the day
following the sighting of the new moon.
Pious Muslims eagerl scan the sky for the appearance of the
thin moon, because only after seeing it, they can break the month old fast.
What is most important about the Id celebration is that all
Muslims pray together at the same place. A Muslim, place of worship is called Mosque.
since it cannot hold the thousands that gather at this time, they choose a large maidan
and pray there.
On that day, before praying , Muslims wear their best
clothers and give alms like wheat or fruit or useful articles to the poor.
