Muslims flock to Moscow's cathedral mosque for Eid prayer

Muslims in Asia celebrated the Eid-al-Fitr religious holiday on Sunday with prayers for peace as they marked the end of Islam's holy month of Ramadan.

In Chandigarh, hundreds of Muslims converged at the Sector 20 Jama Masjid and other mosques to pray and celebrate Eid and greet each other. Meanwhile, big gatherings are also expected in main Eidgahs, shrines and Masjids in Pulwama, Kupwara, Handwara, Pattan, Sumbal, Bandipora, Ganderbal, Budgam, Charar-i-Sharif, Shopian, Bijbehara, Anantnag, Beerwah, Tral, Pampore, Kulgam, Jammu, Doda, Kishtwar, Bhaderwah, Poonch and Rajouri.

People were buying mutton, poultry, bakery, vegetables, sweets, hosiery and toys from shops.

The White House did not host a traditional Iftar dinner to commemorate Ramadan, the Islamic holy month of fasting, for the first time in almost two decades, a media report said on Monday.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi greeted the nation on the occasion of Eid-ul-Fitr and wished the spirit of peace and brotherhood may prevail. During the month Muslilms fast from eating and drinking during the day.

The third umpire took his time before deciding in South Africa's favour. "It's down to the quality of players that we have". The biggest star was Cobras seamer Dane Paterson , who produced an outstanding spell of four for 32.

Unlike Eid-al-Fitr, the festival of Eid al-Adha does not end a period of fasting.

A state of emergency has been declared last April, following two separate attacks on churches during Palm Sunday prayers, which killed more than 40 people and injured over 100 others.

Today Azerbaijan marks the Ramadan holiday.

While Imam A.S. Naina Mohammed of Al-Jamiul-Azher Jummah Masjid led the prayers at the beach, Chief Imam (Katheeb) M.I. Abdul Majeeth Mahlaree offered sermon on the occasion. "May this day strengthen in each one of us, an unflinching faith in our unity and common destiny that has characterized our composite culture over the ages", Mukherjee said.

In total, there were 250 prayer spots in the state, while ten were in Agartala.
