Ahmadiyya Muslim Community: Eid-ul-Fitr celebration
Muslim Celebration to Focus on Gratitude
Annual Muslim festival open to public
As the holy month of Ramadan draws to an end, American Muslims prepare for the festive holiday of Eid-ul-Fitr. This celebration marks the end of Ramadan, the Islamic month of fasting. This joyous day is celebrated to glorify God for the countless blessings and lessons learned during the month. Fasting during Ramadan not only fosters discipline and strength, it inspires sympathy for the hungry and poor and encourages Muslims to donate generously to those who need it the most.
“Eid-ul-Fitr is a festive time for all Muslims to be joyful for what they have after a month of sacrifice,” says Wasim Ahmad Malik, Vice President of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community USA, “We are encouraged to celebrate it with our family as well as the less fortunate members of the community.”
The service will begin with a congregational prayer in the morning, followed by a sermon. Refreshments will follow.
Event: Eid-ul-Fitr, Islam's second largest holiday, marks the end of the month of fasting.
