The holy month of fasting comes to an end for Muslims and there are special celebrations to mark the end of Ramadan. 

Saif Asi from the Steinbach Mosque says this is a very special time of year, adding that it’s similar to Christmas. 

“We go and visit each other, and we take gifts for the children,” he explains. 

There will also be a special feast with a variety of food. 

During Ramadan, Muslims engage in prayers, self-reflection, as well as daily fasting between sunrise and sunset. 

Muslims believe that fasting cleanses the body, and the practice reminds them of the suffering of the poor. 

Asi says it's very important to Muslims that they help people in need, offering food and other basic needs.

Eid al-Fitr is tomorrow. It’s an Islamic festival that marks the end of Ramadan. 

The Manitoba Islamic Association is organizing prayers for tomorrow morning at the RBC Convention Centre in Winnipeg.
