Monday was the end of fasting and spiritual reflection for 1.9 billion Muslims worldwide. Eid Mubarak was celebrated Monday to mark the conclusion of Ramadan.
It was a full house Monday morning at Jamia Muhammadia Rizwia mosque. Ramadan in Islam is the ninth month of the Muslim calendar and the holy month of fasting. It begins and ends with the appearance of the crescent moon.
Ramadan is pushed back 10 days every year, and many have told us that fasting during the summer months are longer than winter due to the sunrise and sunset.
The end of the Ramadan fast is Eid-Alfitr, the feast of fast breaking that is one of two major religious holidays in the Muslim calendar.
“After 30 days with the sighting of the moon, we celebrate in holiday. It's like a Thanksgiving," says Samar Kahn, general secretary of Jamia Muhammadia Rizwia mosque.
