Pic(k) of the week 25: EID MUBARAK - SATWA, DUBAI

Today is the last day of Ramadan, the yearly month of fasting observed by Muslims all over the world and of which the yearly participation is observed as one of the 5 pillars of Islam. 

After Ramadan, the first day of the next lunar month starts of with festivities  with friends and family, called Eid-al-Fitr; similar to how Christians celebrate Christmas. 

I would like to take the opportunity to which all my Muslim friends a EID MUBARAK - Blessed celebration. 

Just like previous years, I've documented part of Ramadan, especially around Iftar time; a social meal when the daily fast is broken around sunset time.

Lots of people, mostly men, tend to gather in open areas around Mosques, to have Iftar together. It is quite a sight to often see hundreds of people waiting for Iftar time (breaking of the fast) on laid out seating areas. 

The three images below were shot at Satwa in Dubai during the last week of Ramadan. Click on the image for a better view.
