There has been a positive spirit after two years of pandemic.
Hundreds of people gathered at Nuri Jame Masjid, Margherita on Tuesday morning for Namaz, due to heavy rainfall Namaz couldn’t be held at the Central Margherita Eidgah Maidan.
After a two-year hiatus due to the Covid-19 outbreak, Islam people gathered at Nuri Jame Masjid, Margherita to pray together.
People greeted one another, put on new clothing in the morning, and prayed to keep peace and harmony in the world. On this holy day, people are also encouraged to forgive their fellow humans and seek forgiveness from the Almighty.
Abdul Alim, a resident of Masjid Patty, Margherita said that Eid-ul-Fitr marks the completion of the holy month of Ramadan. On the day, people gather at Masjid and Eidgah and offer Namaz and greet each other by embracing.
“After Namaz, we distribute food, clothes and money to needy people which is known as ‘Zakat’ in Islam. Islam people believes that paying ‘Zakat’ purifies, blesses and increases their wealth,” said Abdul Alim.
‘But now-a-days some fringe groups and elements are harming the brotherhood, unity and peace of the country in the name of religion which is very unfortunate for our country where every people irrespective of caste, creed, race, gender, language and religion have the right to enjoy festivals and cultural activities. I appeal to everyone to boycott such fringe groups and elements which are born to harm our diversity,” said Abdul Alim.
