IPTC Info
Caption: Javanese Muslims are prays during Eid ul-Fitr at Independent Square in Paramaribo Suriname

Approximately % 15 population of Suriname is Muslim Javanese. Javanese people ("imported" from the former Dutch East Indies) make up 15% of Suriname during Dutch colonization.

They were at “Presidential Square” at 23rd of October 2006 for their holy pray at front of two historical buildings of Suriname “Presidential Palace” (AKA White House locally) and “Clock Tower”

Eid ul-Fitr (*)

The Islamic holiday of Eid ul-Fitr marks the end of the fasting period of Ramadan and the beginning of the following month. Eid ul-Fitr means the Festival of Breaking the Fasts. On the day of the Eid, congregational prayers are held in mosques or Islamic community centers, and before the prayer begins, Muslims must give a certain amount for charity (provided they are financially capable) known as "Zakatul Fitr". The prayer is two rakaahs only, and it is an optional prayer as opposed to the compulsory 5 daily prayers. Following the prayers, people congratulate and embrace one another, eating special foods and sweets at a mosque, community centre, or at people's houses with festive moods and atmospheres. Gifts are exchanged (especially given to children), and Muslims dress in their best clothing on this day.
