After 30 days of fasting, the Eid celebration at the end of Ramadan is a joyful time that usually lasts about three days. Muslims will buy new clothes, exchange gifts and, of course, enjoy special foods. In Muslim- majority nations, the streets may be decorated and festivals will be held.
For many Muslims, Eid al-Fitr begins with communal prayers at daybreak and the distribution of money (zakat) to the poor, which is one of the five pillars of Islam.
We encourage you to keep praying for Muslims you know, as well as Muslims around the world, even though Ramadan is over.
- There have been more movements to Christ (of 1,000 or more new disciples) among Muslims in the last 50 years than have been recorded in all the previous history of Christian mission! Pray for this momentum to continue. (Acts 2:17–21)
- Pray for Christian workers and organisations focused on seeing effective discipleship movements among Muslim people.
- Ask the Holy Spirit to continue to inspire you to have God’s heart for Muslims, to see them as He does, and to be the light that leads them to Jesus (Matthew 5:14–15).
