Food in train

Ramadan is an auspicious month for Muslims. People who believe in Islam worldwide celebrate the holy month by fasting. And on the last day, they organise an Eid al-Fitr feast with hearty dishes and greet each other with “Eid Mubarak”. “Eid Mubarak” is an Arabic term meaning “Celebration of breaking of fast”. However, the term is widely interpreted as simply wishing someone a happy oath.
