Essay On Eid Day

Write a two paragraph essay (one page) on your favorite season or holiday of the year.

My Favorite Holiday.
My favorite holiday is Eid Al-fitr, which is one of the two most important Islamic celebrations. It's on the first day of Shawwal Month(which is correct? Month or month) and symbolizes the celebration of break-fasting after completing the fasting of the entire month(which is correct? Month or month) of Ramadan. People usually perform some rituals in this holiday. They recite the Takbir all throughout the period of Eid. They dress in their finest clothes and adorn their homes with lights and decorations. On the first day of Eid, they go to mosques early in the morning to pray the Eid prayer and listen to a short sermon given by the Imam. After the prayer, they congratulate each other and say some common greetings such as: Id mubarak "Blessed Eid" or Id sa'id "Happy Eid". Some old men and women give children sweets and candies. Then, people scatter to visit their relatives, friends and acquaintances. Coffee, chocolates, and dates are served for guests in this holiday. In each family, adults give children small sums of money which are(which is correct? is or are) called Eidi.

The most enjoyable Eid I have ever been is this year's Eid. My first delivery was only twenty days ago, so my sisters came to my apartment before the holiday to clean it, decorate furniture and prepare chocolates plates for guests. I and my husband planed for a nice party with my family on the first day. The night before Eid, we hanged ornaments, blew balloons, and put flowers in my family house. At the party where all my family members and many relatives were, we made phone calls to distant relatives to give well-wishes for the holiday. Then, we all played some enjoyable games together. My father and mother gave all kids gifts. The special thing was that my twenty-one-days baby took a nice gift from his grandparents. On the second day, my friends and teachers surprised me when they visited me and gifted my cute baby Abdulla a baby cart and an amazing set of clothes. My husband's family and his relatives also visited me to see our new guest; my cute baby. At the end of Eid, Abdullah had a lot of gifts and sums of money from the family members, relatives, and friends.

month month are

I and my husband


my husband and I

in your first part i think you should use first person instead of third to make it more personal like we dress in their finest clothes and adorn our homes with lights and decorations.

this makes it sound like you participate in these activities too instead of viewing it from an observers eyes

I am not good at English so I am not sure but I think "twenty-one-days baby " dosen't need "s"
twenty-one-day baby

My Favorite Holiday.
My favorite holiday is Eid Al-fitr, which is one of the two most important Islamic celebrations. It's on the first day of Shawwal Month (which is correct? Month or month)(here, the word Month is correct because you are describing a special Month.) and symbolizes the celebration of break-fasting after completing the fasting of the entire month (which is correct? Month or month)(Here, again, you are describing a special month, so the word is capitalized) of Ramadan. People usually perform some rituals during this holiday. They recite the Takbir all throughout the period of Eid. They dress in their finest clothes and adorn their homes with lights and decorations. On the first day of Eid, they go to mosques early in the morning to pray the Eid prayer and listen to a short sermon given by the Imam. After the prayer, they congratulate each other and say some common greetings such as: Id mubarak "Blessed Eid" or Id sa'id "Happy Eid". Some old men and women give children sweets and candies. Then, people scatter to visit their relatives, friends and acquaintances. Coffee, chocolates, and dates are served for guests in this holiday. In each family, adults give children small sums of money which are (which is correct? is or are)(are is correct; you are talking about the plural) called Eidi.

My father and mother gave all kids gifts. The special thing was that my twenty-one-days(it would probably be better if you told us what the twenty-one-days baby is) baby took a nice gift from his grandparents. On the second day, my friends and teachers surprised me when they visited me and gifted my cute baby Abdulla a baby cart and an amazing set of clothes. My husband's family and his relatives also visited me to see our new guest; my cute baby.

That was an interesting essay. I enjoyed reading it. There are a few corrections made throughout the essay. I am not sure what a "twenty-one's day baby" is, and therefore, I cannot remark on how to best write it. Please inform us. I would be very interested in knowing.

Hello,
sorry, I mean that my baby named Abdulla is twenty one days old.
I want to make it adjective.
It may be better if I say: my twenty-one-day-old baby. Right??

Yes, in that case, you are correct. It should read: my twenty-one-day-old baby.

Again, your essay was very interesting. I enjoyed reading it.

Eid ul-Fitr means the celebration of the end of Ramadan. During Eid ul-Fitr we give donations to those in need in the community -- the donations are called Fitrana. The significance of this holiday is to celebrate the completion of Ramadan.

Ramadan is the holy month of fasting, in which one eats before sun up and does not eat or drink again until sundown. This is one of the Five Pillars of Islam, which make up the foundation of Muslim life. The pillars consist of the oneness of God, five daily prayers, giving to charity, making a pilgrimage to the holy land (Mecca) and fasting. Young children, elderly people, or people on medication should not fast because it will do them no good and only make them ill. God has made fasting a pillar to teach us humility and patience. I think that God orders Muslims to fast so they can get an idea of how a homeless or poor person is hungry on an everyday basis. This makes us more grateful for what we have. Eid is on the 13th or 31st day of Ramadan. That day is determined by the Islamic lunar calendar. Eid is celebrated on the first day of the Islamic month of Shawwal.

Our family and the Islamic community we live in celebrates Eid a bit differently, and it has become a tradition over the past 20 years in Asheville, N.C. Usually men go to the mosque to pray. After that, they go to their relatives' and close friends' houses. Our Eid party is normally held at a local open hall. We have a breakfast and lunch potluck, when everyone brings a dish from their own culture to share with others. The variety of cultures includes Pakistani, Indian, Indonesian, Arab and African, just to name a few. Everyone brings a different dish so that it can be a multicultural event. There are many activities for all the younger kids like giant inflatables as well as gifts for each child. The community members volunteer to purchase gifts and the entire community donates. It is full of laughter and fun. Sometimes there are competitions between men and women to see which side knows more about religious facts. Toward the end of the celebration the children get together and read verses from the Quran, the Islamic Holy Book.

I believe it is important for all Muslims to celebrate Eid ul-Fitr. It is a celebration of successfully fasting. This is a very important time not just for my family, but for every Muslim family throughout the world to celebrate and pray together. In Muslim countries Eid ul-Fitr is celebrated for three days and is an official government and school holiday. Our tradition is a slightly different way of celebrating Eid ul-Fitr, and hopefully will be carried on for a long time.
