Windsor Muslims celebrate Eid at WFCU Centre today
Muslims in Windsor and across the world are celebrating Eid al-Fitr and the end of Ramadan today.
The end of Ramadan is marked by the first sighting of the new moon on the tenth month of the Islamic calendar.
There will be two prayer services this morning at 8 a.m. and 10 a.m. at the WFCU Centre.
Ronnie Haidar speaks for the Windsor Muslim Association and invites everyone to join in on the celebrations.
"It's a joyful occasion. It's a day we'd like to share with as many people as possible and it's a day that signifies that ... Allah or God willing that we are better now then we were a month ago," Haidar said. "If you do have an opportunity, come check us out at the WFCU Centre, or maybe you know a Muslim neighbour, friend or relative that you want to speak to, make sure to wish them a nice happy Eid.
"And to all the restaurants and to all the grocery stores and the supermarkets, we're back."
