Muslims gather in celebration of Eid al-Fitr: the finale of Ramadan

Thousands of Muslims gathered in mosques across Long Island on Friday as they celebrated one of the most important moments of the year, the end of Ramadan and its month of fasting during daylight hours. The start of the three-day Eid al-Fitr festival was marked by morning prayer services at mosques as the faithful dressed in traditional clothing and prepared for special meals at home with family and friends.
