Muslims Around New Jersey Celebrate Eid al-Fitr

Thousands of Muslims around New Jersey are celebrating the Eid al-Fitr which marks the end of Islam's holy month of Ramadan.

According to reports during the month of Ramadan, New Jersey residents and practicing Muslims around the world abstain from eating and drinking from sunrise to sunset.

The timing of Eid al-Fitr, or "the festival of breaking the fast," can be tricky because it is based on the sighting of the new moon, which varies from country to country.

Officials said the holiday is usually celebrated for about 2-3 days in New Jersey but can vary depending on the country you are living.

Happy Eid al-Fitr
