Eid al-Fitr (or simply Eid) is one of the most important religious holidays for every Muslim. It marks the end of Ramadan (the month of fasting) and is directly connected with the ideas of spiritual perfection and good deeds. Last year it fell on September, 9. This year - on August, 30. Let's see how it's celebrated in Russia.
Saint Petersburg Cathedral Mosque.
The first prayer began at 5-30 a.m.
As we already said, this holiday marks the end of Ramadan, the month when it's forbidden to eat and to drink in the daytime. It means that a Muslim should eat breakfast in the morning and supper in the evening. Without dinner.
It's even forbidden to drink water in the daytime.

"Please take off your shoes".
"To disturb during a prayer is a great sin!"
It started raining.
The territory of the mosque was so overcrowded that these guys had to stay behind the gates.
