Beyond the earth - Eid-ul-Fitr

Beyond the earth to the skies, and to a new moon

Eid is recorded to be celebrated in 624 by the Prophet Muhammad after the victory of the battle of Jang-e-Badar. Muslims are not only celebrating the end of their fasting, but thanking Allah for the his help and strength throughout the previous month in practice and self-control in fasting.

The festival begins at the first sighting of the new moon. The holiday, Eid-ul-Fitris in celebrated in Trinidad and Tobago and Muslins gather at their homes to give prayers and to have a festive full meal marking its end. Eid is also a time of forgiveness, and making amends to each other.

So look to the skies this evening a see the cycle of the history of man and the earth's satellite, planets and stars.
