Photos: Southland celebrates Eid al-Fitr

Muslim communities ended the holy month of Ramadan on Wednesday and celebrated the holiday Eid al-Fitr.

Ramadan is the month on the Islamic lunar calendar during which Muslims fast from sunrise to sunset, focusing on worship, charity and good deeds.

The Islamic Society of West Valley celebrated its Eid al-Fitr, which means feasting, festival or breaking the fast, at Pierce College in Woodland Hills.
