In Milpitas, American Muslims joined in celebrations across the globe Sunday and Monday in celebrating the end of the holy fasting month of Ramadan with Eid al-Fitr festivities.

The prayer portion of the festivities were held at the Al Hilaal Mosque and Community Center on Dempsey Road Sunday and the Bait-ul-Baseer mosque on Evans Road on Monday, and drew around 250 and 300 attendees respectively.

Eid al-Fitr marks the end of Ramadan, where Muslims around the world fast from food, water and bad habits from dawn to dusk for 30 days. During that time, they focus on increased spirituality and charitable actions.

“Today is a celebration of the end of Ramadan, this is Eid al-Fitr which is a reminder of charity and remembrance of God …we are celebrating the completion of the fasting for 30 days but also our charitable activities,” said Nusrat Qadir Chaudhry, spokeswoman for the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community Silicon Valley, after the Monday prayer.
