Namaze Eid

via Wikipedia

...the holiday [Eid] celebrates the conclusion of the thirty days of dawn-to-sunset fasting during the entire month of Ramadan... Eid prayer is performed in congregation in open areas like fields, community centers, etc or at mosques. No adhan (Call to Prayer) or iqama (call) is to be pronounced for this Eid prayer, and it consists of only two rakaʿāt (units of prayer). The Eid prayer is followed by the khutbah (sermon) and then a supplication (dua) asking for God's forgiveness, mercy, peace and blessings for all living beings across the world.
