  Eid & Festival
Eid -ul- Fitr is comparatively a new festival and is not as old as Eid -ul-Azha.
Mihirjana and the Nauruje festivals celebrated by the people of Arabia prior to the holly prophet's (Peace be upon him) hijrat to Medina were mere Arabic versions of the two great festivals of the Zoroastrians namely, Mihirjana and the Nawroze respectively.
The general scheme of celebration of Nauroze and Meherjan not only laid emphasis on the artificial differences between rich and poor, haves and have-nots, which was not all compatible with the concept of equality in Islam, but it normally led people to drunken orgies, frequently ending in brawls and bloodshed.
