Eid al-Fitr in Niger

Eid-al-Fitr (Eid al-Fitr, Eid ul-Fitr, Id-Ul-Fitr, Eid) is the first day of the Islamic month of Shawwal. It marks the end of Ramadan, which is a month of fasting and prayer. Many Muslims attend communal prayers, listen to a khutba (sermon) and give zakat al-fitr (charity in the form of food) during Eid al-Fitr.

Is Eid al-Fitr a Public Holiday?

Eid al-Fitr is a public holiday. It is a day off for the general population, and schools and most businesses are closed.

In 2020 it falls on a Sunday. Due to this, some businesses may choose to follow Sunday opening hours.

Many Muslims dress in fine clothing and children receive gifts on Eid al-Fitr.
