“We’re all overwhelmed that so many people from different faiths and from across the world have travelled to Birmingham for this year’s Celebrate Eid.
“We’ve been working for months with five local Mosques and our charity partner Human Appeal to organise the community for a memorable day of prayer, games and fun.”
During Ramadan this year, worshippers raised £435,000 in a single night for international humanitarian aid charity Human Appeal, which comes just weeks after it handed over a cheque for £1.2 million.
The money will go directly to the Saving Syria project, which is raising funds for orphans in the war-torn country.
Othman Moqbel, CEO of Human Appeal, said: “It is a great honour once again for Human Appeal to be part of Celebrate Eid; the biggest gathering of Muslims in Europe.
“As well as tragedy throughout the holy month of Ramadan, there has been unrivalled generosity.
“British Muslims have given so much to help those in need here in the UK and around the globe.
“This Eid we celebrate the generosity of the Muslim community.”
Religious Eid is a single day that signals the end of Ramadan and the start of the next month, Shawwal.
Ramadan is the holiest month in the Muslim calendar, where Muslims focus on personal reflection and prayer through three types of worship: charity, prayer and fasting.
