Goa Muslim Festivals
Goa does not quite have a sizeable Muslim population and it ranks
after Hindus and Christians. Though there are not many Muslim
festivals in Goa, the main ones are celebrated with much joy and
enthusiasm. The two main Muslim festivals that are celebrated
in Goa are Id-ul-Fitr and Id-ul-Zuha. The Muslim colonies are
beautifully decorated with streamers and elaborate feasts are
prepared in Muslim households.
Id-ul-Fitr is a very important festival of Muslims. This festival
is celebrated with much fervor by all Muslims all over India.
In Goa, the Muslims prepare elaborate feasts and gather with family
and close friends to celebrate. It is an important festival for
the Muslims as it marks the end of the Ramzan month.
Id-ul-Zuha is celebrated by the Muslims to commemorate the sacrifice
of Prophet Abraham's son. In Goa and all over India, Muslims prepare
elaborate feasts and gather with friends and family to celebrate
this auspicious occasion.
