On Eid, Muslims show their joy for the health, strength and opportunities of life, which they believe Allah has given them to fulfill their obligations of fasting and other good deeds during the month of Ramadan. It is considered unholy to fast on this day. It is also a day of forgetting old grudges and ill feelings towards others.
