Five Ways To Say Happy Eid al-Fitr 2019

Eid al-Fitr occurs on Tuesday June 4. It is a day of celebration - and best wishes being sent

Eid al-Fitr - the period that marks the end of Ramadan occurs between Tuesday June 4 and Wednesday June 5. The exact time is announced according to the sighting of a new moon.

Eid is a time to celebrate and send best wishes.

So happy Eid to all our readers. And here are five more ways to say it slightly differently.

Eid means holiday. al-Fitr is 'breaking the fast'. It is an occasion that is celebrated with prayer, family gatherings, lots of good food, new clothes, charity - and love.

Typically greetings include:

  1. Blessed Eid to you and your family - Eid Mubarak lakum wa-li-‘a’ilatakum.
  2. May God’s blessings be showered on you on this Eid al-Fitr - Litanzil ‘alaykum barakat Allah fi Eid al-Fitr hatha.
  3. May you celebrate this every year. Blessed Eid - Kul ‘am wa-antum bi-khayr. Eid Mubarak.
  4. With all the love, blessings, and peace on this joyous day. Happy Eid al-Fitr - Ma‘ kull al-hubb, al-barakat, wa-l-salam fi hatha al-yawm al-majid. Eid Fitr sa‘id.
  5. I wish you a very happy Eid and may all your good deeds be accepted by God - Atamanna lakum Eid sa‘id jiddan! Litakun kul a‘malakum al-khayyira maqbula ‘ind Allah.
