After 30 days of fasting and prayers, Muslims around the country flocked to mosques in the early hours of this morning to celebrate the first day of Eid-Al-Fitr.
Muslim League President, Hafiz Khan says Eid is a day to celebrate peace, thanksgiving, a day to forgive others and show victory.
“Very auspicious day because it’s end of thirty days of Ramadan and fasting where we fasted from before sunrise to sunset. It’s a day that we share not only our belief but also share our charity and generosity. Because we believe that this festival is for everyone who live here because the whole thing about Islam is peace and love so that’s what we’re doing.”
Muslims have completed a month of fasting and today they’re expressing their gratitude by means of distributions especially money to the poor and the needy.
Hundreds of Muslims from the Central division gathered at the Samabula Masjid early this morning to start their day with prayers and to mark the end of Ramadan bringing the thirty days of fasting to an end.
