And Eid al Fitr, which means the end of the month of fasting (not eating or drinking). They also exchange gifts with their family. Muslims believe in six major beliefs, the belief in one God, belief in the angels, belief in the holy books, belief in the day of judgement, belief in the divine decree, and the belief in all of the profits.
