World Muslims Celebrating Eid al-Fitr


Muslims around the world are celebrating the Eid al-Fitr holiday, marking the end of the fasting month of Ramadan.

Celebrations of the three-day holiday typically focus on family. Muslims begin Eid al-Fitr with a special dawn prayer and a small meal to symbolically break their month-long fast. Common Eid traditions include gift exchanges and the wearing of new clothes.

The start of the Eid depends on the sighting of the crescent moon. It began today (Wednesday) in many countries, including Indonesia, Malaysia, Egypt, Iran and Algeria.

Most other nations, including many of the Arab states, marked the holiday on Tuesday. In India and Bangladesh, clerics were unable to see the moon on Tuesday night, and so the Eid will not begin until Thursday.
