Idul Fitri, also known as Eid al-Fitr, is a significant religious holiday celebrated by Muslims all over the world. It marks the end of Ramadan, the month-long period of fasting, prayer, and self-reflection. The holiday is a time of joy, forgiveness, and gratitude for Muslims, and it is celebrated with great enthusiasm and fervor.
As the month of Ramadan comes to an end, Muslims prepare for Idul Fitri by engaging in acts of charity and kindness towards others, as well as by cleaning and decorating their homes. On the day of Idul Fitri, Muslims gather in mosques for morning prayers, and then spend the day with family and friends, exchanging gifts and enjoying feasts of traditional foods.
In Indonesia, which has the largest Muslim population in the world, Idul Fitri is a major national holiday. The holiday is celebrated with traditional foods such as ketupat (rice cake) and opor ayam (chicken curry), as well as with the exchange of money and gifts known as “THR”. In many parts of the country, the holiday is marked by the tradition of mudik, in which people travel back to their hometowns to celebrate Idul Fitri with their families.
