Beautiful Muslim Mosque-s

Snap Facts : Eid ul-Fitr, known to the Christian majority and other non-Muslims as "Wakás ng Ramadán" ("End of Ramadan") or incorrectly as "Ramadan", has been recognised by the Filipino Government as a regular holiday by virtue of Republic Act No. 9177, signed into law on November 13, 2002. The law was enacted in deference to the Muslim-Filipino community and to promote peace among major religions in the Philippines. The first national commemoration of Eid ul-Fitr was on December 6, 2002, marked by prayers and celebrations by the Muslim community.
For the 2010 observance of Eid ul-Fitr, incumbent President Aquino issued a Proclamation declaring Friday, September 10, 2010 a nationwide, special non-working holiday.

 In observance of the Eid'l Fitr in the Philippines, we all enjoy another long weekend, having today as a non-working holiday.
Three weeks ago, I had the chance to have my first visit to Cotabato. Covered by the Ramadan, I was able to personally witness their sunlight fasting which ended around 6pm when the sun was about to rest. I heard a religious music being played around the whole town which seemed to be an announcement that the fasting for the day ended. Only to resume the next dawn of the day.

I saw a lot of beautiful mosque-s in this province.  Here are some of those :
