Atlanta's Muslim community celebrated Eid Al-Fitr this year on both Friday & Saturday, July 17th and 18th. As a follow up to our Atlanta Ramadan in Pictures piece, a number of mosques and independent photographers have helped to put together an awesome display of the diversity of the Atlanta Muslim community during our Eid celebrations. Special thanks to all of the mosques that contributed as well as to Hanifah of Americanissa, Reem of Reem Faruqi Photography & Rahmeek of Rahmeek Rasul Photography!
