As Ramadan nears its end and Eid al-Fitr approaches, people begin to concentrate on shopping for new clothes to wear during Eid. They also buy gifts, but these are largely given just to children.

On the morning of Eid, the men will proceed to the local mosque or other prayer gathering location for Eid prayers. When they return home, a large festive meal will be eaten by the whole family and by guests. Food or money, called the “zakat al-Fitr”, is also be given to the poor who can’t afford to put on their own Eid al-Fitr celebration.
