The holy month of Ramadan ended Sunday night, and on Monday the Muslim community on P.E.I. came together to celebrate Eid.

More than 200 people were at the Masjid Dar As-Salam Mosque Monday morning. The faithful had been fasting for a month, with no food or drink from dawn until dusk.

Najam Chishti, president of the Muslim Society of Prince Edward Island, said going hungry is a spiritual experience.

"Cleans our bodies and makes us understand what really hunger is whether you are rich or poor doesn't matter," said Chishti.

"When you fast you really feel that hunger is real there and you see those people who do not have that much money to buy the food ... it makes you realize how fortunate we are."
