Celebrating and taking stock of Islam’s holidays

Muslims in the Treasure Valley recently celebrated Eid ul-Adha, or the Festival of the Sacrifice, which is one of two religious holidays in Islam. The other holiday is the Eid ul-Fitr (Festival of Fast Breaking), which occurs the day after the month of Ramadan.

Muslims in the Treasure Valley started fasting the lunar month of Ramadan on Saturday, May 27. This year’s fast is noteworthy because the international Islamic Center of Boise moved to a new location near the crossing of West Ustick Road and Christine Street in Boise. The new center was remodeled over several months and it opened in mid-April, just in time for this year’s Ramadan.
