2014 Festivals and Events for Muslims

There are only two main holidays in Islam: Eid Al-Fitr, celebrated at the end of Ramadan and Eid Al-Adha, celebrated at the end of Hajj. Since Muslims follow the lunar calendar the festivals fall on different dates each year. Apart from these there is a practice to observe Miladunnabi (the prophet Mohammed’s Birthday), Muharram (Islamic new year).Shab-e-baraath to name a few.
