1.Millions of Muslims around the world are today celebrating Eid al-Fitr, the celebration that comes after the holy month of Ramadan, when Muslims believe the Qur'an was revealed to the prophet Muhammad.
2.The day typically begins with morning prayers followed by a special prayer to celebrate Eid al-Fitr. The same prayer takes place across the world. The people praying below are in Yemen.
4.And this group is praying in Gaza City, in the Palestinian Territories.
5.Since the prayers take place so early in the morning, it's a little easy to get distracted. This kid, in Indonesia, was mesmerised by a remote-controlled camera flying overhead.
6.And this adorable child, in Kosovo, can be forgiven for yawning.
7.Ramadan is the ninth month in the Islamic calendar.
8.During Ramadan, Muslims abstain from food, drink and sex from dawn to dusk as an act of submission to God.
9.Abstaining from food is meant to increase empathy towards those less fortunate around the world.
10.But the morning prayers don't just take place in mosques.
11.Some take place in open fields.
14.Others take place on the streets.
15.And this one took place outside the separation barrier in Bilin, during a protest against Israel's military operation on the Gaza Strip.
16.The protest began again once they had completed the prayers.
17.The importance of the morning prayer can be demonstrated by the lengths many go to in order to attend the prayer session.
19.Which also led to some incredible photography.
20.Following the morning prayers, Muslims tend to visit the cemetery to remember family members.
21.But it's fair to say that Eid is a celebration for the whole family.
24.That's why Muslims go out of their way to look good for Eid. Whether it's having a haircut before the big day.
25.Or buying new shoes especially for the occasion.
27.Or getting henna painted on your hands.
28.It's a great time for local economies, too, as people flood to markets and shops to buy gifts for their friends and relatives.
29.And that always includes a selection of sweets.
30.Meanwhile some world leaders have used the opportunity for some politicking. Here's Syria's leader Bashar al Assad attending prayers in Damascus.
31.And here's the President of Afghanistan Hamid Karzai inspecting the honour guard after the morning prayers.
