Millions of world Muslims are bidding farewell to the holy month of Ramadan, getting ready to welcome another spiritual event: `Eid Al-Fitr.
The three-day festival is one of the two main religious celebrations in Islam, together with `Eid Al-Adha.
After special prayers to mark the day, festivities and merriment start with visits to the homes of friends and relatives.
And while traditionally, many bask in a joyous mood, wearing new clothes for `Eid, children look forward to gifts and traditional `ediya (cash).
These photos, published by Xinhua net, show Muslims preparations to welcome the feast worldwide.
