Eid-ul-Fitr, the festival marking the culmination of fasting and holy month of Ramzan, is being celebrated across the country today.

Trump's top diplomat, Rex Tillerson, declined an invitation this year from the State Department's Office of Religion and Global Affairs to host an Eid al-Fitr celebration, according to CNN.

In Chandigarh, hundreds of Muslims converged at the Sector 20 Jama Masjid and other mosques to pray and celebrate Eid and greet each other. "I urge well-to-do Muslims to identify with ordinary Nigerians who go without food nearly every day, and to be more concerned about what to do to improve their plight".

"Eid-ul-Fitr is a time for charity and helping those less fortunate than ourselves, both in our communities and elsewhere in the world".

The Governor said that Eid-ul-Fitr is also an occasion for happiness and merrymaking, which is marked by the spirit of universal brotherhood.

May Allah rewards all those who fast religiously during the holy month of Ramadan and showers them with countless blessings.

USA now supplying LNG to South Korea
Kogas said June 26 that the first US LNG cargo under long term contract will arrive at its Tongyeong LNG terminal next month. Lee Seung-hoon, CEO of KOGAS, is the only member from a state utility company to join the Moon entourage.

Ramadan is sacred to Muslims because tradition says the Koran was revealed to the Prophet Mohammed during that month.

Unlike Eid-al-Fitr, the festival of Eid al-Adha does not end a period of fasting.

"Don't let us forget to continue to assist our leaders in all the tiers of government with prayers, so that they can lead us aright and move the country forward in all ramifications".

Eid ul-Fitr is not a public or bank holiday in the United Kingdom, some Islamic business may observe different opening hours.

"I hope that this will be a joyful occasion for all".

In total, there were 250 prayer spots in the state, while ten were in Agartala.
