Eid Mubarak عيد مبارك

Ramadan ends tonight.    Eid Mubarak  عيد مبارك to all of my Muslim friends.

I was in Cairo last August during Ramadan and was impressed by the long tables set up each evening between buildings all over downtown Cairo.

Fasting from sunrise to sunset is a big part of the holy observances.  I also learned that an important part of Ramadan is charity for the less fortunate.   Every night people partake in these community meals.
