This picture taken by Hari Prasetyo at Al Izhar School, Pondok Labu, Jakarta, Indonesia, 30 minute before Ied Al Fitri Shalat was started. Every year, Al Izhar School is organized this activity. The students were the organizer, they helped and guided by the teachers to run this activity. It is a part of education system in Al Izhar School.

Ied Al Fitri Shalat is special prayer that celebrated on the 1st day of Shawwal, the 10th month of Islamic calendar. The time of Salat al Eid begins when sun reaches approximately two meters above the horizon until it reaches its meridian before noon.

Every year, moslems in the world celebrate Ied Al Fitri as their "the winning day" after done one month of fasting. Fasting itselft has a purpose that are to train our patience and to control ourselves from any of desire. So this day was our the winning day.

Ied Al Fitri is also commonly known as "Hari Raya Idul Fitri". "Hari Raya" literally means 'Celebration Day'. Muslims in Indonesia celebrate Eid like other Muslims throughout the world. It is the biggest holiday in Indonesia and one of the biggest in Malaysia and is the most awaited one. Shopping malls and bazaars are filled with people days ahead of Hari Raya, causing a distinctive festive atmosphere throughout the country. Many banks, government and private offices are closed for this holiday.

The night before Eid is with the takbir which is held in the mosques or musallas. Eid also witnesses a huge temporary migratory pattern of Muslims, from big metropolitan cities to rural areas to celebrate the Eid with family members because the majority of Muslims are from rural areas. This is known as mudik in Indonesia — it means going back to the hometown. Special dishes likeketupat, chicken opor, beef are served during this day.

It is common to greet people with "Selamat Hari Raya Idul Fitri" which means "Happy Eid". Muslims also greet one another with "mohon maaf lahir dan batin" which means "Forgive my physical and emotional (wrongdoings)", because Eid ul-Fitr is not only for celebrations but also the time for Muslims to ask for forgiveness for any sin which they may have committed but was cleansed as a result of the fasting in the Muslim month of Ramadan.

It is customary for Muslim-Indonesians to wear traditional cultural outfits on the Eid. The outfit for men is called baju melayu or baju koko which is worn together with kain samping (made out of songket) and songkok (a dark coloured headgear); in Indonesia the men will usually wear pants with similar color to the shirt or (normal black pants) and a (black head cover called) [Peci]. The women in Indonesia wear what is known as baju kurung.

Once the prayer is completed, it is also common for Muslims in Indonesia to visit the graves of loved ones. During this visit, they clean the grave, recite Ya-Seen, a chapter (surah) from the Qur'an and also perform the tahlil ceremony. All these are done to ask God to forgive the dead and also those who are living for all their sins.

The rest of the day is spent visiting relatives or serving visitors. Eid ul-Fitr is a very joyous day for children for on this day adults are especially generous. In Indonesia, children will be given token sums of money, also known as "uang lebaran" from their parents or elders.

In Indonesia there is a special ritual called halal bi-halal. During this, Muslim-Indonesians visit their elders, in the family, the neighborhood, or their work, and show respect to them. They will also seek reconciliation (if needed), and preserve or restore harmonious relations.
