Muslims around the world are celebrating the three-day Eid al-Fitr festival, which marks the end of the fasting month of Ramadan.

The timing of Eid al-Fitr, or “the festival of breaking the fast”, begins with the first sighting of the new moon, and it often varies from country to country.

In Ghana celebrations will begin with special early morning prayer in mosques and open-air spaces and later move on to feasts and merry making.

Ramadan is the ninth month in the Islamic calendar, celebrating the moment the Koran was revealed to the prophet Muhammad.

This annual observance is regarded as one of the Five Pillars of Islam.

A common greeting is Ramadan Mubarak, which means “have a blessed Ramadan”.
