BENSALEM, Pa., (CBS) – Muslims around the world held celebrations Friday to mark the end of Ramadan, including a mosque in Bensalem.

The Ahmadiyya Muslim Community Philadelphia chapter is 400 members strong.

They were among Muslims around the world celebrating Eid. There was prayer and a feast to mark the end of their month long fast of Ramadan.

“In essence fasting gives you a sense of relocation, or reassessment of your own life that what we spoke about today, trying to obtain God, nearness to God right. Trying to be better human beings better people in general, righteous people, honest, truthful,” said  Imam Mahmood Kauser.
