End Of Ramadan Marked In Texoma

It's the end of a holiday for Muslims.
Many with the Islamic Society of Wichita Falls gathered to celebrate on Sunday.
They marked the end of Ramadan.
Ramadan is the Islamic holy month of fasting. It is to be used as a time of inner reflection, devotion to God and self control.
The holiday began July 20th, and ended Saturday at sunset.
Muslims observing the holiday have to abstain from eating, drinking and intimate activities, during daylight hours for one month.
We spoke with Abdullah Samsid-Deen of the Islamic Society of Wichita Falls and he said today is a celebration across the world.
"Today represents the day after the end of Ramadan. We call this day Eid Al-Fitur," said Samsid-Deen. "Eid Al-Fitur is a day for celebration, and rejoicing, and happiness among the Muslims."
At the end of Sunday's prayer service everyone greeted one another with hugs and recognition of brotherhood.
Then it was time to head to the courtyard and finally enjoy a day time meal with friends.
