How Philly Muslims 'show up and show out' for Eid

The day of Eid falls on the first day of the month of Shawwal. About 1.6 billion Muslims across the world marked the festival this year. Eid-Ul-Fitr, otherwise known as "feast of the breaking of the fast" is an important festivity celebrated by Muslims all over the world to mark the end of the holy month of fasting. Muslims celebrated by waking up early and putting on their traditional clothing, depending on their culture, or something new they bought to wear for the day.

The festival of Eid, celebrated by Muslims around the globe, marks the end of Ramzan, the sacred month of fasting at the Islamic calendar when the Quran was revealed to Prophet Muhammad.

President M Abdul Hamid and Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina today greeted the countrymen as well as the Muslims across the world on the occasion of the holy Eid-ul-Fitr, one of the greatest religious festivals of the Muslim Ummah.
