Filipino Muslims celebrate Eid al-Fitr

Filipino Muslims gather during the celebration of Eid al-Fitr, the first of two canonical festivals of Islam, at the Kartilya ng Katipunan in Manila on Monday, May 2, 2022. Eid al-Fitr marks the end of Ramadan, the Muslim holy month of fasting, and is celebrated during the first three days of Shawwal, the 10th month of the Islamic calendar.

The religious holiday is celebrated by Muslims worldwide because it marks the end of the month-long dawn-to-sunset fasting of Ramadan according to Wiki.
