Eid Al Fitr in the UAE: Origin, Dates & More – Guide

Eid-ul-Fitr is a Muslim holiday that dates back to 624 CE. After the Almighty Allah blessed Muslims with the month of fasting, the Ramdhan, He also marked its end with a celebration in the form of Eid-ul-Fitr, the festival of happiness, joy, and thankfulness.

The Holy Prophet (PBUH) first celebrated Eid in 624 CE after fasting for an entire month. It also marks the beginning of the new month of Shawaal and is celebrated on the 1st day of the new moon. Since it is an important Muslim festival, the best preschools in Dubai, like Mosaic Nursery, celebrate it with all heart and energy.

How do you explain Eid ul-Fitr to kids?

Dubai preschools successfully cater to different cultural needs as kids from all world cultures, and religions come to study under one roof. Thus, it is super easy for Muslim kids in Mosaic Nursery to tell them about Eid-ul-Fitr because they have grown up celebrating it in their households.

How do you explain Eid ul-Fitr to kids

The beauty of kid’s preschools like us is that we are inclusive of all religions and respect each equally. But what about kids in these preschools in JLT that aren’t Muslim? How do you explain it to a Christian and Hindu kid when the holiday comes near?

Our teachers try their best to design activities around the origin and idea of the holiday, making the concept easy to understand by the kids. Moreover, since Eid is all about spreading joy and sharing happiness, Mosaic Nursery celebrates it together like other preschools near me in JLT. We include the non-Muslim kids in the celebration and make it equally exciting for them and their families.

Children at our British preschool in Dubai are innocent. Rather than instilling hate for culture or ignoring the topic completely, our teachers intensify their efforts to develop ideas that help children understand the concept behind religious festivities.

Eid Al-Fitr Facts & Worksheets 

The word Eid-ul-Fitr translates into the Festival of Breaking Fast. The celebration starts with “Chand Rat” when after the Shawaal moon sighting, Muslims prepare to celebrate Eid the next day.

The eid day starts with the eid namaz. Everyone in the house and surrounding wears new clothes, their best ones; the girl puts on henna, and they all wish each other and entertain friends and family with hearty meals and sweet dishes.

Although this festival is like most other festivals celebrated worldwide, teaching it to kids can take time and effort. The best approach adopted by Mosaic Nursery is to introduce the concept through worksheets.

The teachers create worksheets discussing the month of Ramdhan, how Muslims fast in it, and when it ends; they celebrate the ending with Eid. Everything is beautifully crafted onto the worksheet that children fill with the teachers’ help and clear their concepts about the festival.

And to make the understanding even clearer, sometimes we conduct similar role-plays and activities that make the Eid concept easy to grasp for little minds.
