Eid al-Fitr is finally here and marks the end of the fasting period for Muslims around the world during the month of Ramadan. Eid al-Fitr is also the sacred moment to build deeper quality time, with worshiping and having a feast together with family members. Though the emergence of the pandemic in recent year has made changes to the way Eid is celebrated, people have continued to commemorate this special moment.
Let’s take a look at how Eid is celebrated from pre-pandemic to new normal!
Eid is a moment celebrated with loved ones visiting and sharing blessings as well as forgiveness to one another. During this day, people would attend early morning prayers, giving out Zakat donations to those in need, and having a feast together. Being surrounded by loved ones brings warmth and memories to cherish.
But last year was different. The emergence of the pandemic has caused disruptions and lock down rules being imposed around the world. As a result people have to stay indoors for most of their time, but this doesn’t stop the celebration. Adapting with the situation, everyone stayed connected and celebrated the moment of Eid with loved ones through video calls to even giving out Zakat donations digitally. It was a very different yet unforgettable Eid celebration.
People around the world have adjusted to new-normal rules created to counter the pandemic, such as wearing masks. As people have started catching up on what they long for, like spending moments with friends or family members face-to-face, well-being of loved ones comes to mind. Celebrating safely with less crowds in more intimate places like one’s own home or staycation spots are popular.
While celebration of Eid has seen changes, what will never change is that Eid is a moment to cherish loved ones, and experiences walked with them will become memories to carry forward with you.
