Dressed in their finest clothing, the men and women of the Zion-based Ahmadiyya Muslim community hugged one another in celebration of Eid al-Fitr at the Milan banquet hall in Waukegan Monday.

The day is one of the most important Muslim holidays marking the end of the month-long fast of Ramadan, and with the hugs came an "Eid Mubarak" greeting, which Bushra Latif, president of the Women's Auxiliary, said translates into "blessed celebration."

On Monday, more than 100 worshipers listened to a sermon that highlighted the personal achievements made during the month of fasting. It was followed by silent prayers that gave the men and women time to reflect on what they learned from their sacrifice.

Latif said over the years, she's discovered her strong inner will through the practice.
