Trump skips out on hosting Ramadan dinner, breaking with White House tradition”

On Friday, the mosque opened its doors for the nationwide campaign "fast with a Muslim friend", which aims to teach non-Muslims about the significance of fasting during Ramadan.

Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari has greeted the Muslims of the world and Pakistan in particular on the eve of Eid-ul-Fitr.

In countries on just about every continent, Muslims gathered for prayer, reflection and a joyous conclusion to the fasting month of Ramadan.

The chief minister reminded everybody of the basic message of Eid ul-Fitr that says forgive and forget.

During this time, Muslims refrain from eating and drinking from sunrise to sunset.

More than 2,000 people converged at the Youth Centre in the Yala municipality for prayers, with government officials taking part in the event.

When is Eid al-Fitr?

Since 1999, Tillerson's five Republican and Democratic predecessors have hosted either an iftar dinner to break the fast during Ramadan or an Eid al-Fitr reception at the end of the monthlong holiday.

Muslims will celebrate the festival marking the end of Ramadan on Monday, a day after Saudi Arabia and other gulf states, announced the National Moon-sighting Committee on Sunday evening.

Eid this year falls in what has been one of Afghanistan's deadliest months in terms of insurgent attacks in the past 15 years.

All Muslim countries observe extended holidays for Eid al-Fitr, while most countries declare at least a one-day national holiday for Eid. Hence today is 30th Ramadan in Oman and Eid celebration will begin from Monday. Another custom involves donning new clothes for the new day, which marks a spiritual renewal. After a month of the latter, delicacies and heavy foods will reign at the lavish dinners being prepared.
