Thousands of Muslims, who flocked to the DITIB Central Mosque in Cologne, affiliated to the Turkish-Islamic Union of Religious Affairs (DITIB), in Germany in the early hours of the morning, took sides at the same time to perform the Eid prayer.
Muslims, who left behind another month of Ramadan in which fasting, iftar tables are shared, responses are read, and tarawih prayers are performed, experienced the excitement of reaching the Eid al-Fitr.
Eid prayer, attended by 5 thousand people in Cologne, was sad because of the earthquake in Turkey.
Thousands of Muslims living in Germany flocked to the Cologne DITIB Central Mosque in the early hours of the morning to pray.

After the prayer, the sermon was read and takbirs were made.
Hands raised to the sky, prayers were prayed for those who lost their lives in the earthquake region in Turkey, and Muslims who had trouble in various parts of the world, who shed tears and who could not experience the joy of Eid al-Fitr, and for the entire Islamic world.
DITIB religious officer Naci Şengün stated that “compared to previous holidays, this Ramadan Feast was sad because of the earthquake disaster in Turkey”:
“We celebrated the feast of Ramadan-i Sharif with all my Muslim brothers at the Cologne DITIB Central Mosque. We prayed with 5 thousand people with an image reminiscent of the Kaaba in different colors. Of course, this year’s Ramadan-i Sharif holiday is sad. Those who lost their lives in the earthquake. We share the pain of our brothers. May God have mercy on our deceased brothers and sisters.”
