End of Ramadan means lots of bustle at the Eindhoven mosques

Now that Ramadan is over, thousands of muslims gathered at the mosques in Eindhoven this morning, for their morning prayer.

For a month’s time, muslims were not allowed to eat between sunrise and sunset. Quite an ordeal for them this time of year, with these long days and high temperatures.As of today, Ramadan will end with a three-day celebration of Eid-ul-Fitr (id-al-fitr), which translates to ‘Suikerfeest’ (‘Sugarfest’) in Dutch. Most muslims celebrate with their families.
