Wednesday, 21st July 2021

This week, 4.444 million Muslims around the world celebrate Eid al-Adha, a festival of sacrifices, also known as Bakrid, which marks the end of the annual Hajj pilgrimage.

 Eid al-Fitr dates and celebrations vary from country to country. In Muslim-majority countries, Eid al-Fitr is a three-day festival, but in India, it is usually celebrated for one day. This year, the country will celebrate this holiday on July 21. In Saudi Arabia, the Eid al-Fitr celebration will start one day earlier, on July 20.

 However, due to the Covid19 pandemic, Eid al-Fitr celebrations in the country are expected to weaken. In light of the daily increase in Covid19 cases and the looming threat of the third wave, many state governments have imposed many restrictions.

 In most states, including Maharashtra, large-scale group prayers are prohibited in mosques due to Covid restrictions. But in Delhi, Hyderabad, Chennai and Kolkata, where places of worship are already open, people can gather in local mosques, but the number is limited.

 Andhra Pradesh

 In the official notice of Eid al-Fitr, the state government asked residents to avoid large gatherings. The government also stated in the statement that prayers will not be held in Eidgah or open spaces. The state government allows prayers in mosques, but the occupancy rate will now exceed 50%, and regulations on social distancing and mask wearing must be strictly observed.

 The government also recommended that believers bring their prayer mats to the mosque. Imams and khateebs were asked to shorten the Eid al-Fitr (sermon).

 Uttar Pradesh

 In Uttar Pradesh, the government prohibits the killing of cattle and camels on the occasion of Bakrid. Except this time gatherings of more than 50 people in one place are also prohibited. The government also prohibits the slaughter of animals in public places.


 In the official guidelines, the state government recommends that everyone celebrate Eid al-Fitr at home. The Namaz mosque can only accommodate up to 5 people, including religious leaders. The government of Assam also prohibits public gatherings.


 In a controversial order, the government of Kerala relaxed Covid19 closure restrictions for the Holy Day from July 18th to 20th. Shops that sell clothing, footwear, electronics, jewelry, etc. have been allowed to continue to operate.

 However, this was challenged by the Indian Medical Association (IMA) and the matter has been submitted to the Supreme Court. On Tuesday, the High Court will hear applications against the Kerala government. Chapter

 Why Do You Want To Celebrate?

 The holy holiday of Eid al-Fitr is celebrated on the tenth day of the twelfth month of the Islamic or lunar calendar, Dhu al-Hijjah. According to the Holy Quran, the holy book of Islam, this day is celebrated to commemorate the loyalty of the prophet Abraham to God after he was tried to sacrifice his son. During the celebrations, Muslims practice udhiya or qurbani, which includes offering sacrifices and distributing meat to needy people and family members.
