Thousands of families across the region will enjoy feasts to mark the end of Hajj - the sacred pilgrimage to Makkah.

Morning prayers were taken by thousands of Muslim men this morning at Calderdale mosques including Madni Mosque, Gibbet Street, Halifax, pictured.

Imam Abdus Samee, pictured, led some of this morning’s prayers.

Councillor Faisal Shoukat (Lab, Ward) and Calderdale Council of Mosques member said services will offer sympathies to British victims involved in Middle East conflict and a firm stance against the actions of Isis terrorists.

“Terrorist groups like Isis have no part to play in Islam - it is a fringe organisation which Muslims, around the world do not condone,” said Mr Shoukat.

Families across the region are planning to enjoy the Islamic religious festival with the exchange of food and gifts.
