The Arabic phrase “festival of breaking of the fast” is Eid-Al-Fitr, or just Eid as it is most often known. It occurs in the month of Shawwal and is the most significant religious event in the Islamic calendar.

Muslims celebrate Eid, also known as Eid Ul Fitr, as a significant religious occasion both in Iran and globally. After a month of strict Ramadan fasting, Eid is a unique occasion for the people of Iran.

After a month of fasting, Eid is incomplete without an abundance of delicious treats. If you happen to be in the vicinity, we have compiled a list of Must-Try Iranian Eid Foods.

The only people who are excluded from this fasting are athletes, elderly people, those with tough diseases like diabetes or asthma, pregnant women, and kids.
