Every year eid is a time for festivity and joy, people gather together to celebrate the successful end of ramadan, a holy month in which muslims fast, however this year as a result of social distancing, there will be less gatherings, less people together and less partying.
Chaand raat is especially considered a party night each year in which people go to malls for shopping and there are people on the roads hooting and celebrating, they are busy applying henna on their hands or lighting up the sky with fireworks.
However this year although at some few places this was going on, but a lot of people practised social distancing, no doubt coronavirus is killing the joy of eid but its better to kill the party than get yourself killed.
The government has urged everyone to use skype and video calls option available on whatsapp and fb to talk to everyone and don’t go outside.
Remembering Those In Need
We should remember the sick and helpless during this time and try to help if not physically but financially, because due to unemployment there are plenty of people in the world and in poor developing countries who are still hungry and in need for food.
Taking Precautionary Measures
Some people are still hugging each other as a way of “sending eid greetings” coronavirus doesn’t celebrate eid so its better to be far away because taking precautionary measures is better than ending up in the hospital.
It is still a time for celebration, fasting in heat is tough and we should celebrate Eid but like every pandemic changes history and the world, so did this one, so let’s celebrate but also lets be careful.
