For our Muslim friends, 21 April this year has a special meaning. It marks Eid al-Fitr or Hari Raya Puasa, the end of Ramadan and their month-long fasting.
Why do you need to dress up for Eid?
If you aren't Muslim, you may be wondering why the Eid holidays — Eid al-Fitr and Eid al-Adha — call for dressing up. The reason can be traced back to their belief that the Prophet Muhammad was known to wear his best cloak for both days. Today, Muslims follow his example by donning their best Eid fashion.
