Muslim Family Surprises Their Non-Muslim Neighbors With Ramadan Fast-Breaking Treats

June 4 was Eid al-Fitr, the holiday which celebrates the end of the Ramadan, the holy month of fasting. Eid means fun, games, and feasting and it’s about sharing that joy with neighbors, too, even the ones who aren’t Muslim.

During this year’s Eid al-Fitr, Redditor padelsh received a sweet surprise from their Muslim neighbors: a bag of celebratory pastries to spread the love.

(The pastries here appear to include kahk and feteer.)


Other Redditors were heartened by this simple and lovely act of neighborly kindness.

“Oh my God if we could just have more people like this our world wouldn’t be so hateful,” TV_is_my_parent wrote.

And some noted that this kind of inclusiveness is what helps the holiday to feel special even when it’s being celebrated in a largely non-Muslim country.

“Being Muslim in a country where the majority are non-Muslims can be SO HARD,” noted Geoluhread123. “I miss my family and friends all the time, and sharing this holiday with complete strangers, your neighbors or your coworkers is the only way some of us can cope with being alone. It’s not about religion at this point, it’s just about being a nice person and making your fellow Muslim feel like they’re a part of something where they don’t necessarily feel like they belong. Just be a bro (like OP) and take the free food, say thank you, share their joy and know that it comes from a good place. That’s really all what it takes to be a decent human being.”

Here’s a better view of those treats, for those of you who want to feast vicariously:

Just goes to show: even if you practice different faiths or philosophies, being a kind person and a good neighbor translates across the board.
Eid Mubarak!
