Eid-ul-Fitr is an important religious holiday celebrated by Muslims worldwide to mark the end of Ramadan- the Islamic holy month of fasting (sawm).

A Eid-ul-Fitr congregation was held at the Jatiya Eidgah in the capital at 8:30 a.m.

Muslims in the United States joined those around the world during the holy month of Ramadan to focus on acts of faith and charity. A statement, in which Trump recognized the holiday, was released on Saturday but has not been posted on the President's Twitter account. Many members of the Muslim community condemned the message, which largely focused on terrorism.

It is hoped that they are able to maintain this same lifestyle in the other eleven months of the year since the Allah they served in the month of Ramadan is the same Allah today and forever. "Such acts only steel our resolve to defeat the terrorists and their perverted ideology".

Barack Obama hosted his first Ramadan reception in 2009 and continued through each year of his presidency.

After offering the Eid namaaz, it was time for the celebrations with family, friends, neighbours and community people, savouring and serving each other the festival special dish of "sheer-korma", a sweet preparation of milk, vermicelli and dry fruits.

"We are sad about the situation across the world and even in our country".

Secretary of states have also traditionally hosted Iftar dinners since 1999 ― but not this year.

Read the full statement below: As Muslims in Ghana and across the globe climax the end of Ramadan with the celebration of Eid-Ul-Fitr today, the NPP congratulates them on this milestone occasion and wishes them a successful Eid (Eid Mubarak). "How come you don't have time for a population of your society that needs some assistance?"

Imam Talib Shareef, president of the Nation's Mosque in Washington, D.C., called Trump's decision "disappointing".
