Muslims across Nepal will be marking Eid al-Fitr, the end of the Islamic holy fasting month of Ramadan today. Due to the current lockdown, the country’s Muslim population will be spending Eid at home; missing prayers at the mosque and celebrations with wider families. Monday has been declared public holiday in Nepal to mark Eid al-Fitr. The Government of Nepal had originally proposed Sunday as the day of the public holiday, however a request from the Muslim Commission led to the change of day.
I would like to wish everyone well and for them to have a wonderful Eid with their loved ones across Nepal and the world. I hope we all play our part to reduce the spread of the coronavirus, spread more love and positive energy; more so right now.
Eid Mubarak Friends.
After thirty days of fasting from sunrise to sunset every Muslim deserves a three-days feast with their family but unfortunately this year there will be no such celebration that every Muslims look forward to. Nevertheless Allah has a purpose for your pain, a reason for your struggle and a reward for your faithfulness. So let’s not give up and have sabar (faith/hope) – Ahmed Dulla (The Factory Team – Dulla)
Cov-Eid Mubarak 🙂
Things have changed this year, no namaz at the Mosque, no shopping for Eid, no hugs, no family gathering but what is keeping us all together is the hope of smile! Insha Allah we will overcome this phase soon. – Faija Parveen (Open Space Network/Namaste Eid)
Eid Mubarak to all you lovely people on a rather unprecedented time… in Nepal we’ve been advised to offer Eid Namaz from home so let’s stay home and pray for the wellbeing of people all around the world and for Covid-19 to end soon. – Nakim Uddin (Team Quest)
Eid has always been this beautiful day where we would all get ready, meet at our grandparents home and everybody cooks together and eats; a beautiful family bond where the energy itself is so soothing. Friends and family across the world greet each other… though things will be different this time, Eid is always special for it brings together us as a family. – Bilal Ahmed Shah (Latido Leathers)
On this Eid, may Allah shower his mercy upon us and blessings for wisdom and kindness. I hope we will soon collectively win over the corona crisis from all around the world. Peace. – Abdus Miya (Sajha Yuwa Sangathan)
