Eid Al Fitr

Scott talks about the end of Ramadan with Sheikh Tosun Bayrak of Pearl River, N.Y. The Sheikh likens the experience of Ramadan to a journey away from everyday life. In this time, called Eid Al Fitr, one has the opportunity to reflect more closely on those aspects of the spirit that transcend the physical activities restricted during Ramadan. Eid is the time when Allah asks Muslims to return to their normal lives and to use what they learned during Ramadan.
