THE FAITHFUL ARRIVING: For the first of two Eid al-Fitr congregational prayers Wednesday morning at the Muslim Community of Palm Beach County mosque in West Palm Beach. The three-day Eid, or “recurring happiness,” holiday commemorates success in the Islamic holy month of Ramadan, when observant Muslims fast during the daylight hours from routine and natural human needs and gratification, such as food, drink and conjugal relations. Instead, heightened emphasis is placed on acts of kindness and charity, and increased study of the holy Quran, the revelation to the Prophet Muhammed of Arabia more than 1,400 years ago. It is one of two Eids, the major of which, Eid-al-Adha, in several months, celebrates participants’ completion of the Hajj, or pilgrimage to the ancient holy city Mecca.
