CAIRO - 21 May 2020: President Abdel Fattah El Sisi extended his greetings to Egyptian expatriates abroad on Eid al-Fitr.

All Egyptian consulates and embassies circulated the president's cable of greetings on their Facebook pages, reported the state-owned news agency MENA on Thursday.

Eid al-Fitr is celebrated by Muslims after fasting in the month of Ramadan as a matter of thanks and gratitude to God. Usually, Eid al-Fitr is a three day holiday.

The word Eid is an Arabic word that means a festivity, a celebration, recurring happiness, and a feast. In Islam, there are two major Eids, namely Eid al-Fitr (Festival of Breaking the Fast) celebrating the end of Ramadan and Eid al-Adha (Festival of Sacrifice) which coincides with the Hajj and commemorates Prophet Abraham’s sacrifice of a sheep in place of his son Ishmael.
