Is wishing a Muslim person "happy Eid" before the day of Eid al-Fitr something which is done in Islamic culture?
In my case, I have a work-friend who I typically see once a week at work. I am fairly certain they are fasting for Ramadan. Would it be better to wish them "happy Eid" a few days before, or a few days after June 15th? Or is there no difference?
As I understand it, Eid al-Fitr is a celebration of the end of a month of fasting, so I wasn't sure if it would be appropriate to congratulate them on the conclusion of the month while they are still fasting.
