Ramadan celebrations around the globe

The daily Ramadan fast is broken at dusk, not just with food and drink but with a gathering of friends, family and colleagues. It's also a time when financially secure Muslims are encouraged to feed poorer families in their larger communities.
Once again, Muslim communities tried to come together while staying physically apart.
