Our best wishes to the Hillcrest families celebrating Eid-al-Fitr
Eid al-Fitr is the Islamic festival that celebrates the end of the month-long fast of Ramadan. Sharing food with family, friends and other members of the community is an important part of the festival. It is a time of goodwill, when presents are given, new clothes are worn and the graves of relatives are visited. Because one of the Five Pillars of Islam is giving to charity - Zakat - many Muslims will also celebrate by making donations and helping out others.
