Chaand Raat is a bazaar/market place that takes place on “the night of the moon” (Chaand Raat). It is celebrated by the Islamic community across the world, for the eve of the Muslim festival of Eid ul-Fitr. At the celebration the community comes together to shop, eat and welcome the month of Shawaal, the first day of which is Eid. It is a celebration that offers clothing, jewelry, henna tattooing, fashion items, games for all, as well as arts and crafts.
WNYMuslims conducted a Chaand raat festival on the 14th of June, 2018. It was a wonderful time for ladies of the community to gather and enjoy shopping and getting henna tattooing done. It was a time for enjoyment and laughter.
