Daily Herald report

Suburban Muslims welcomed neighbors and religious leaders from the Schaumburg and Hoffman Estates area for an "iftar," or fast-breaking meal, Tuesday at Masjid Al Huda in Schaumburg.

The interfaith gathering is one of many occurring throughout the suburbs during the Islamic holy month of Ramadan, when observing Muslims abstain from food and water from pre-dawn until sunset to fulfill one of the pillars of their faith.
