People greet one another every day, put on fresh clothing in the morning, and pray to an unseen God to keep peace and harmony in the world. Eid-ul-Fitr is regarded as one of the most important  festival of Islam religious all over the world. 

It is observed as a day of thankfulness and charitable giving. On the holy day of Eid-ul-Fitr, Islamic religious people were also encouraged to forgive their fellow humans and seek forgiveness from the Almighty.

"After Namaz we distribute food, clothes and money to needy people which in  Islam it is said as "Zakat" which Islam religious people believe that paying "Zakat" purifies, blesses and increases the remainder of their wealth" said Abdul Alim.
