Sisi greets Egyptian expats on Eid al-Fitr

President Abdel Fatah al-Sisi greeted Egyptians who received him at the airport after his arrival from the United States of America

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.
