The Muslim community in the country is celebrating the festival, which bears important religious significance, by attending special congregational prayers in mosques across the country.
The largest festival of Muslims is marked by reading special prayers from the Muslim holy book Koran, visits to friends and family and exchanging best wishes with each other.
On the day of the celebration, a typical Muslim family wakes up very early and after the first normal everyday prayer, is required to eat in a small quantity, symbolising the end of Ramadan. After the special prayers, festivities and merriment are commonly observed with visits to the homes of relatives and friends to ask Allah for blessings.
It is also a day of forgiveness, moral victory, peace of congregation, fellowship, brotherhood and unity.
Meanwhile, President Dr Ram Baran Yadav has extended greetings to all Muslims at home and abroad on the occasion of the holy festival of Eid.
In his Eid message on the eve of the festival, President Yadav wished for peace, happiness and prosperity of all Nepals and hoped that the festival will promote social harmony and brotherhood in the country.
