Religionwise Festivals - One India many Religions

Muslim Festivals

Muslims celebrate a number of festivals all round the year. An interesting thing of their festivals is that they are based on Hegira and follow the lunar calendar rather than the Georgian calendar. The festivals of the Muslims do not have months that correspond to the seasons. Muharram is one of their main festivals which fall on the first Muslim month. Other festivals are Bakri-id, Shab-I-Barat, Ramzan Id, and Milad-Ul-Nabi.

Firstly, Muslims do not celebrate a number of festivals all round the year. Islam is the only religion with the least festivals, that is, only two. Eid ul Fitr and Eid ul Zuha. Muharram is not a festival, but the name of the first month of the hijri{Lunar} calender. The other 8 listed here, are not festivals, but events created by people after the death of the Prophet Muhammad[s.a.w.]. According to the Quran and Sharia'a, Muslims celebrate only 2 festivals. As for the celebration, on the peopl's death and birthdays is strictly forbidden. Therefore, I request you to please remove the other events from the list. Comment  #1
