MUSLIMS across the world will be celebrating Eid-ul-Fitr on 6 July, depending on the sighting of the new moon. Eid marks the end of the month-long fast of Ramadan.

Muslims fast during the hours of daylight, meaning they are not allowed to eat or drink from sunrise to sunset and undertake extra prayers and worship during the period, as a means to grow closer to Allah.

In many Muslim countries the celebrations continue for three-day period.
