Muslims celebrate the end of Ramadan with major feast

MIAMI GARDENS, FLA. (WSVN) - Muslims across the globe ended their fast Wednesday as the holy month of Ramadan came to a close.

The Islamic Center of Greater Miami held a prayer session Wednesday morning to commemorate the day.

Those in attendance prayed to mark the beginning of the Eid al-Fitr, also known as the Feast of Fast Breaking, which is a three-day affair. Families usually come together to enjoy a large meal and spend the day together.

During Ramadan, Muslims do not eat or drink from sunrise to sunset for 30 days. According to CNN, it is customary for Muslims to not lie, lust or slander someone, especially during Ramadan, which the faithful consider as a spiritual detox.

Eid al-Fitr is considered one of Islam’s major holidays.
