Azerbaijani Muslims mark the Eid al-Fitr holiday, which marks the end of the holy month of Ramadan.

Eid "is a joyous time for all Muslims to be grateful for what we have", says Dr. Ahsan M. Khan, president of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community Los Angeles East Chapter.

The White House tradition started with earnest in 1996, when First Lady Hillary Clinton hosted 150 people after learning more about the ritual from her daughter Chelsea, who had reportedly studied Islamic history in school, as reported by Muslim Voices.

For the first time in almost two decades, Ramadan has come and gone without the White House recognizing it with an iftar or Eid celebration, as had taken place each year under the Clinton, Bush and Obama administrations.

Washington D.C. [U.S.A.]: The White House did not host an Iftar dinner to commemorate Ramadan, the Islamic holy month of fasting, for the first time in almost two decades. The statement further stated the holiday is a reminder of the significance of "mercy, compassion, and goodwill" and the U.S. renews its commitment to honour these values.

Eid al-Fitr's meaningful vision exceeds religious limitations - President Mon, Jun 26, 2017, 11:05 am SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka. Most of the Muslim world kicked off celebrations that day, but because the holiday is set by Islam's lunar calendar and depends on the sighting of the new moon, some countries celebrate it a day later. There are two kinds of seviyan preparations, either of which is what you would come across should you visit Muslim homes to celebrate the festival: Sheer Khurma and the delicious Kimami Seviyan. Shareef added he thought the choice not to host the dinner was "disappointing".

Bhubaneswar: Odisha Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik today wished people belonging to Muslim community on holy occasion of Eid-Ul-Fitr. After all, no member of the Trump family bothered attending the official White House Passover seder in April, although at least that one wasn't totally canceled.
