Eid al-Fitr 2021, 2022 and 2023 in Uzbekistan

Eid al-Fitr is celebrated in Uzbekistan with much religious fervour and general merriment. The national holiday comes on the first day of the Islamic month of Shawwal, immediately following the holy month of Ramadan and month-long period of fasting, prayer and devotion. It is one of the most important of all Muslim commemorations.

Fasting for an extended period and then suddenly having a major feast day is the notable feature of Eid al-Fitr, and this makes it somewhat similar to how Roman Catholics and some Protestants celebrate Easter after a 40-day Lenten fast.

Fasting for Ramadan is called the act of “Sawm” and is one of the Five Pillars of Islam. It is a test of will power as much as anything else, and the Eid celebrations that follow are a reward for the faithful. Ramadan is an exercise in self-control, while Eid al- Fitr is an expression of joy, accomplishment, and thankfulness.
