Ramazan (Lailat al-Qadr & Eid-e Fetr)

Two weeks after Shaban 15, the great fast of Ramazan begins. The fast must start at early dawn and continue until the dusk. Abstinence from all food, smoking, drinking water, and from all sensual indulgence is required. A purgatorial efficacy is attached to this ritual in the popular mind. Other circumstances add much to the solemnity of the fast among the Shias, the most important being the assassination of Imam Ali on Ramazan 21. The last ten days of Ramazan are particularly holy; the 23rd is most often presumed to be Lailat al-Qadr, the night of the descent of the Koran. The month ends with special festivities on Eid-e Fetr, the Day of Feasting.

Eid e-Fitr is the first day of the Islamic month of Shawwal. It marks the end of Ramadan, which is a month of fasting and prayer. Many Muslims attend communal prayers, listen to a khutba (sermon) and give zakat al-fitr (charity in the form of food) during Eid al-Fitr.
