Muslims around the world are celebrating the three-day Eid al-Fitr festival, which commemorates the end of Islam’s holy month of Ramadan.

Eid al-Fitr, which means “festival of breaking the fast”, marks the end of a month-long abstinence from consuming liquids and food, as well as smoking and partaking in sexual activity, from sunrise to sunset.

The starting day of Eid varies every year and from country to country depending on geographical location.

Eid celebrations begin with a special prayer in mosques and open-air areas.

Muslim families and communities across the world gather to celebrate with prayers, feasts and festivals.
