Eid is the time when Muslims across the world enjoy feasting after fasting. For a whole month they go without food and water from early morning till late evening. They sacrifice everything otherwise halal for the sake of Allah (SWT) pleasure and the rewards that He promises for the world hereafter.

After thirty days of fasting when the Eid al Fitr arrives it is but natural that believers across the world will wholeheartedly enjoy the food and halal drinks that they avoided for complete one month.
