Eid Mubarak!

Posted on

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.


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.


15. And this one took place outside the separation barrier in Bilin, during a protest against Israel's military operation on the Gaza Strip.


30. Meanwhile some world leaders have used the opportunity for some politicking. Here's Syria's leader Bashar al Assad attending prayers in Damascus.
