Eid-ul-Fitr is a Muslim festival celebrated after the end of one month of fasting at Ramzan. Ramzan has the concept of practicing "fasting" by all classes of people in the society. It makes even a richest person to feel the hunger for a whole day. It makes them to understand the hunger problem among poor people who are not able to afford food three times in a day.

After the end of the Ramzan month, Eid-ul-Fitr has been celebrated with the concept of donating the food grains to the poor people. On the day of Eid-ul-Fitr, each person who has been not considered as a poor, has to donate the food grain which has been normally considered as a food item of mass. The minimum quantity of food grain to be distributed is 2.5 Kilo Grams per head. A family which above the poverty line should donate the food grain worth 2.5 KG multiplied by the number of people in that family. That food has to be distributed to the poor people as defined in Quran.

It makes each and everybody to celebrate the festival and celeberate a hunger fee day. Since every rich person would have the felt the hunger through fasting, it inspires him to donate to the poor throughout the year. In the present system of taxation, government collects the tax, but it is not being utilized properly. Government may use that fund for any purpose. Many times that money has been utilized wrongly through corruption.

But Islamic countries follow the system of Zakath. Only the people, who are coming above the poverty line, need to contribute to the Zakath fund. Zakath fund has been directly distributed to the people below poverty line. Because of this system, we can see good financial independence in Islamic countries. There are some nominal taxes collected for the maintenance of infrastructures etc. If we can have this concept applied globally, we would eradicate the poverty from the world.

The future dates of Eid-ul-Fitr are estimated as follows:

* 2008: 1 October
