Id-ul-Fitr was celebrated in Manipur today amid gaiety and splendour. Prayers were held at all the mosques and feasts were also organized.
In Imphal city, Muslim men thronged the nearby masjids to offer the special morning congregational namaz.
Eid-ul-Fitr is one of the two festivals which Muslims throughout the world celebrate. It marks the end of the month of fasting or ramadan. Eid-ul-Fitr is the festival of breaking of the fast.
It is a sort of reward for the extreme abstinence and prayers that the Muslims had observed during the month of ramadan.
With these Almighty has symbolically shown the followers of Islam that leading a pious and conscientious life in one's lifetime will be rewarded with eternal happiness in paradise.
On this occasion Muslims are enjoined to give sadqah fitr, a specific amount, to the poor so that they could also celebrate the festival.
