Ramadan, the month of blessings, has come to an end. Today (and tomorrow depending on whether or not the moon was sighted in other parts of the world, and in this city), Muslims are celebrating Eid al-Fitr.
It was great to join with thousands in prayer this morning at Bensonhurst Park to mark the end of Ramadan. A beautiful tradition. #EidAlFitr #EidMubarak @ArabAmericanNY @MAS_NewYork @bittamostofi @NYCImmigrants @NYPD62Pct pic.twitter.com/NxC1NeVqLp

Eid al-Fitr lasts three days, but many only dress up and celebrate it on the first day. So here’s to three days of light and happiness. Eat lots of kheer and seviyan and remember, you’re never too old for eidi (cash given on Eid from loved ones and friends)!
Southern Brooklyn was all out this morning:
Eid Mubarak to our Brooklyn community!
