Dar al Islam

  • More than 2 billion Muslims around the world celebrated Eid on May 2, marking the end of Ramadan. The gathering of family and friends is usually a dressed up festival of food, gifts and charitable donations to poor families. But for the past two years, Eid was celebrated mostly at home or in very small groups because of COVID restrictions. This year, Muslim families from New Mexico and newly arrived refugees from Afghanistan gathered at the Dar al Islam mosque in Abiquiu for the first large Eid gathering since the beginning of the pandemic.
