Eid Mubarak! Pictures from around the globe as Muslims celebrate Eid

"In the spirit of Thuma Mina, in the spirit of renewal of our society and in the spirit of fellowship, (I wish) all Muslims well as they celebrate Eid-ul-Fitr with their friends, families and loved ones".

Ramadan is the holiest month of the Islamic calendar, and is a period of fasting, extra prayer and charitable deeds.

"Indeed, it is good to be totally submissive to God during the month of Ramadan but God didn't asked people to be worshiping Him in this month only".

Muslims start Eid by giving thanks to God at the mosque.

He said: "Eid is a very important celebratory day for Muslims as we mark the end of Ramadan and everything that means for us, including regular fasting during daylight hours".

The festival of Eid was celebrated with much fanfare in other parts of the state with people thronging mosques, shrines and Eidgahs to offer prayers on the culmination of the holy moth of Ramzan.

In a bid to disrupt peace, the demonstrators chanted slogans and clashed with police personnel on duty in Srinagar's near Jama Masjid, soon after Eid prayers.

Khyber Pakhtunkhwa celebrated Eid a day earlier on June 4.

The ministry said authorities had taken many measures to reduce the number of potential traffic accidents during the nine-day-long Eid al-Fitr holiday. "Eid Mubarak", he wished.

"I personally think that fasting is not only a religious rite, but also a symbol of human rights, because now in the world there are many places that are going through rough times, and fasting shows our devotion" to helping others, Tsai said.

She said Eid al-Fitr was usually the peak tourist season of the year.

Everyone looks their best on Eid, with many Muslims buying new clothes to wear especially on the holiday. The tradition of hosting Ramadan or Eid dinners has continued ever since with Barack Obama hosting his last one in July 2016.
