Ethiopian Muslims celebrate Eid-al Fitr”

Ramzan, the ninth month of the Islamic lunar calendar is observed as a fasting period by the Muslims world over who abstain from food and water during the period between sunrise to sunset.

The Ashanti regional director of the Islamic Education Unit, Alhaji Ibrahim Abubakar Amankwah, speaking to Class News' regional correspondent, Hafiz Tijani, warned that Islamic schools would not meet the academic calendar if pupils and students from such schools exhibit similar attitude in this year's Eid al-Fitr.

He also posted a video on his Facebook page sharing Eid greetings and a glimpse of his and Canada's loving and accepting nature during the month of Ramadan.

The nature of the dinner has divided opinion over the last two centuries, with far-right critics insisting the dinner was only moved back as a "courtesy" and that the menu was not changed for the guests.

The Daily Star said President Abdul Hamid offered Eid-ul-Fitr prayers along with hundreds of devotees from all walks of life at the National Eidgah. The Eid salat must only be performed in congregation (Jama'at).

The celebration of Eid ul-Fitr is long awaited and greatly enjoyed by the Muslim community.
