Happy Eid ul-Fitr

In Islam, Eid ul-Fitr marks the end of the month-long observance of Ramadan. Ramadan marks the month in which Muhammad received the Qur'an, and Muslims practice fasting, prayers and reading of the Qur'an during this time. Eid ul-Fitr roughly translates as "festivity of breaking the fast" - a time of celebration and feasting. Last week Turkish LEGO builder legoadam built this Mahmudiye Camii Mosque to mark the holy month of Ramadan.
