MUSLIMS AROUND the world are celebrating the Eid al-Fitr, the feast that marks the end of the month of Ramadan this weekend.

The Muslim holy month devoted to dawn-to-dusk fasting, prayers, good deeds and abstinence from worldly pleasures culminates with the holiday of Eid al-Fitr. In most places Eid is usually celebrated up to three days and is a public holiday.

Shoppers flooded markets in India to stock up on food and other treats and in Pakistan, women decorated their feet and hands with henna tattoos. Other people gave prayers by themselves or with large crowds in the Philippines and Indonesia.
