2014 Eid-Ul-Fitr in pictures

Muslims in Afiaman, Abensu, Mayera, Adusah, Machie, etc all suburb of Pokuase today celebrated Eid-Ul-Fitr to mark the end of Ramadan.

The Muslim three-day Eid al-Fitr festival/celebration marks the end of 30 days of dawn-to-sunset fasting during the holy month of Ramadan., began today in parts of the world where sightings of the new moon were made. During Ramadan, the Islamic month of fasting, devout Muslims must abstain from food, drink, and sex from dawn until sunset. The fast, being one of the five pillars of Islam, is seen as a time for spiritual reflection, prayers, and charity.

After sunset, Muslims traditionally break the fast by drinking water or eating some odd number of date/fruits, performing the Maghrib prayer, and sitting down to Iftar, the main evening meal, where communities and families gather together.
