6. Eid al-Fitr begins on the first day of Shawwal, the tenth month of the lunar calendar, but usually lasts for three days. Muslims can choose another six days of fasting in this new month – these do not have to be consecutive. Anyone who completes this is said to have accomplished what is equivalent to fasting all year round. This is because Islamic tradition says that a good deed is rewarded 10 times – to carry out Ramadan and the six days during Shawwal, times 10, is one year.
