Muslim community gives back during fasting

Marking end of Ramadan

DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) — Dayton’s Muslim community comes together to give back and mark the end of Ramadan.

Ramadan is a holy month of fasting and it ended on Monday night. Tuesday, the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community of Dayton marked Eid-ul-Fitr. It is a day to enjoy festivities with family and friends.

This year’s barbeque and celebration included neighbors of the Fazl-e-Umar Mosque on Randolph Street.

“The last few weeks we have been distributing food boxes in the neighborhood. We invited all of our neighbors, invited the people in the housing close to us,” said Choudhry Arshad, the president of Ahmadiyya Muslim Community. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
