Eid al-Fitr Foods To Break The Ramadan Fast (PHOTOS)

Ramadan will soon come to end with the celebration of Eid al-Fitr on July 28.

It's an occasion that Muslims mark by meeting with friends, sharing prayers and, of course, eating plenty of great foods after a month of fasting from sunrise to sunset.

Eid al-Fitr often begins with a prayer service and meal, My Halal Kitchen writer Yvonne Maffei told The Daytona Beach News-Journal last year.

Families then hold feasts or go "house hopping," enjoying foods from other households, she said.

All meals must be halal, so alcohol and pork are out of the question, but besides that, you can serve almost anything.

Dates are a common food that Muslims eat to break the fast, as that's reportedly what the Prophet Muhammad did, The Washington Post noted.

There are plenty of other dishes you can serve as well.

Here are a few recipes for foods to eat at Eid al-Fitr.
