THOUSANDS of Muslims in Parramatta and Holroyd are marking Ramadan this week, the end of the holiest month on the Islamic calendar.More on the eidolatry at "Parramatta Sun"
More than 2000 people celebrated the start of Eid ul-Fitr — the three-day celebration that follows the month of dawn to dusk fasting — with prayers at Parramatta Park on Tuesday morning.
Parramatta Islamic Association president Neil El-Kadomi said the atmosphere was one of joy.
"We prayed the way it should be prayed which is outside," he said.
For it seemed good to the Holy Spirit, and to us, to lay no greater burden on you than these necessary things: that you abstain from things sacrificed to idols, from blood, from things strangled, and from sexual immorality, from which if you keep yourselves, it will be well with you. Farewell."
