Muslims to celebrate the day of Eid
Muslims in Barbados will be observing and celebrating the day of Eid tomorrow.
A release from the Barbados Muslim Association stated: “The main aim of the festival of Eid ul Fitr is to thank Almighty God. Eid Al Fitr is a day of joy and thanksgiving. On this day, Muslims show their joy for the health, strength and opportunities of life, which God has given them to fulfill their obligations of fasting and other good deeds during the month of Ramadan. It is also a day of forgiveness and good feelings towards other fellow human beings.”.
It further added: “Around the world, Eid is celebrated with enthusiasm and fervor and Muslims from all walks of life can be seen adorned in beautiful new clothes, visiting the mosques or open grounds to attend Eid prayers. Greetings of “Eid-Mubarak” or “Happy Eid” are exchanged. A very important aspect of Eid is the charity, which all the Muslims are expected to extend to the needy”.
