Here's How Muslims Worldwide Are Celebrating Ramadan's End

U.S. President Donald Trump did not hold an iftar event at the White House to celebrate the end of Ramadan, defying a tradition that began over 200 years ago.

Ramadan is the holiest month in the Muslim calendar, where Muslims focus on personal reflection and prayer through three types of worship: charity, prayer and fasting. "The community spirit I felt at Ramadan food banks in Montreal and Toronto reminds us all - no matter our backgrounds, we're in this together", Trudeau wrote, while sharing the video. "With Muslims around the world, the USA renews our commitment to honour these values".

But, just when people wonder whether his views about Islam and Muslims are gradually changing. he becomes the first USA president in the last two decades to not host a Ramadan dinner at the White House. Mellimelli was observing Ramadan and Jefferson invited guests to join him for a dinner served at sunset.

Hamilton claims pole with stunning late lap
Vettel thought Hamilton had slammed the brakes on intentionally - which is known as brake-testing - which Hamilton denied. The red flag came out when Red Bull's Daniel Ricciardo hit a wall exiting Turn 6, smashing up his left rear suspension.

Trump concluded the statement with the traditional Muslim greeting "Eid Mubarak" which means "blessed celebration" and is used only during the celebration of the important holiday. They were typically attended by prominent members of the Muslim community, as well as members of Congress and diplomats from Muslim countries.

Rex Tillerson also broke tradition earlier by rejecting a request to host an Eid-al-Fitr reception, Reuters reported last month.

The communal prayers mark the beginning of the Eid ul-Fitr, or "feast of fast breaking" holiday, according to CAIR.

Faedo fabulous again, Florida beats TCU to go to CWS finals
The last time a team did it in the College World Series was in 2010, when FSU's Sherman Johnson and Mike McGee did it against TCU. Saturday's game was similar to Friday's, with the Beavers giving up runs early and LSU pitchers keeping them off balance.

Ramadan is a month-long fast, which marks the month Muslims believe their Holy Book, the Quran, was revealed to the Prophet Mohammed.

"May this joyous occasion, bring happiness, peace and prosperity & be opportunity to rededicate ourselves to serve humanity", he said in his message.

This year, most of the money raised by the Muslim community in western MA will be distributed to refugee families.
