Muslim Celebration to Focus on Gratitude

Annual Muslim festival in Rochester Hills open to public

As the holy month of Ramadan draws to an end, American Muslims prepare for the festive holiday of Eid-ul-Fitr. This celebration marks the end of Ramadan, the Islamic month of fasting. This joyous day is celebrated to glorify God for the countless blessings and lessons learned during the month. Fasting during Ramadan not only fosters discipline and strength, it inspires sympathy for the hungry and poor and encourages Muslims to donate generously to those who need it the most.

“Eid-ul-Fitr is a festive time for all Muslims to be joyful for what they have after a month of sacrifice,” says Wasim Ahmad Malik, Vice President of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community USA, “We are encouraged to celebrate it with our family as well as the less fortunate members of the community.”

The service will be held on Saturday, July 18 and begin with a congregational prayer in at 11 a.m., followed by a sermon. Refreshments will follow. The Ahmadiyya Muslim Community Center is located at 1730 West Auburn Road in Rochester Hills, MI.
