Local Muslim Community Marks End of Ramadan Holy Month


Balloons, body paint, joy and mourning - across the world Sunday, Muslims gathered to celebrate the end of the holy month of Ramadan, and the festivities took almost as many shapes as the places they were held.

Donald Trump has broken White House tradition by not hosting a dinner to mark the end of Ramadan.

In that statement, President Trump gave his "best wishes for a blessed month". You get the chance to go golfing and all this other kind of stuff. "The message that it sends is that we're not that important".

"He's (Trump) only embraced a part of it".

The prime minister stressed, the Muslim community - ummah - does a lot for keeping the traditions and customs, for development of cooperation between Russian Federation and the Islamic world. The dinners began under President Bill Clinton and were continued by both Presidents George W. Bush and Barack Obama. "The community spirit I felt at Ramadan food banks in Montreal and Toronto reminds us all - no matter our backgrounds, we're in this together", Trudeau wrote, while sharing the video.

"Muslims in the United States joined those around the world during the holy month of Ramadan to focus on acts of faith and charity", they said.

Eid al-Fitr 2017 is being celebrated on this evening i.e. June 25, Sunday in UK, Europe, America and other Islamic countries including Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Turkey and other Islamic countries. Trump concluded the statement with the traditional Muslim greeting "Eid Mubarak" which means "blessed celebration".

During Ramadan, Muslims around the world abstain from eating, drinking, smoking and having sex from dawn to dusk.
