You’re on this page because you’d like to know the difference between the words above, it’s nothing hard to know, the first thing to establish is that there are two festivals muslim celebrates, this are Eid-ul-Fitr and Eid-el-Kabir/ Eid al-adha but the common way to greet in the both is saying to a fellow Muslim friend or a friend Eid- Mubarak which is more like Happy Christmas or merry Christmas in the Christian Denominations.
WHAT IS EID-UL-FITR??
Eid-ul-Fitr (Festival of Charity) is the festival celebrated on the first day of the month of Shawwal (10th month in Islamic calendar). Fitr means charity, which is obligatory for all Muslims and paid to the poor among the community. This Eid is celebrated after month long fasting during the month of Ramadan (9th month in Islamic calendar).
WHAT IS EID MUBARAK
Eid Mubarak is the way of greeting the people same as Merry Christmas or Shubh Diwali.
You can also suppose it this way that Eid Mubarak is an Arabic term that means “Blessed Feast/festival“….. Internationally Muslims use it as a greeting for use on the festivals of Eid al-Adha and Eid al-Fitr. Eid means “Celebration”, and Mubarak (derived from the Semitic root B-R-K) means “Blessed”.
The only difference is Eid ul Fitr is festival name while Eid Mubarak is greetings.
Eid ul fitr name of the festival muslims celebrate on 1 shawwal Arabic month after the completion of month ramadhan. Eid Mubarak means wishing let the festival be blessed .We have only2 eids one is Eid ul fitr second Eid ul adha on the 10th of Zul hajj which is the 12th or last month of Arabic calendar
