    Eid Al-Fitr Prayer in Atlanta's Grant Park

     

    Tuesday morning was cool with bright sunshine and Grant Park in Atlanta was in bloom with colors from all over the spectrum. After a month long fast, Muslims from at least eight communities gathered to celebrate the Eid al-Fitr. The Eid Prayer was led by Imam Manoor Sabree of Atlanta Masjid of Al-Islam. This Eid is named for the return to the original nature in which we were created. It marks the end of a month of spiritual immersion, fasting from food and drink during the day light hours, fasting from all things unlawful, fasting from lawful sex during the daylight hours, and fasting from anger. It was fitting that this celebration crowd of over 7,800 people gathered among nature to celebrate the return to their God-given nature. To all those who observed Ramadan all over the world we pray your fast was accepted, your sins forgiven, and that your Eid was joyful. We especially recognize those fasting in Palestine, Ukraine, Nigeria, Myanmar, and other areas of conflict with prayers that they are given double reward for their struggle and that they will soon come to know peace in this life. Ameen.
