Despite the restrictions and curfew businesswoman Shazna Hussain says Eid remains the biggest Muslim annual event.

Ms Hussain travels from Nausori every day to operate her Bula Barber and Cosmetic Shop in Suva.

“With COVID-19 we are not able to celebrate Eid with our friends and families,” Ms Hussain said.

“That does not mean we will not be making the usual amount of sweets we used to make in the previous years,” she said.

“We will be home to prepare sweets, as in Fiji we are always accommodating whoever drops into our homes and also take to work to share with colleagues and friends.

“Unlike in other countries where we have to call first before we visit, Fiji is known for its friendly and helpful people.

“We would be preparing enough for whoever comes around home.”

Last year Ms Hussain said they had a big celebration at their home, as her friends and extended families came over to celebrate.

“This is the time of the year where we will have to hug each other, shake hands and have friends and family at home. But now we can’t,” she said.

She said the festival of Eid strengthens mutual goodwill and inspires each and every one to follow the path of love, friendship and harmony.

She summed up saying Eid was also the time to reach out to the poor and the needy.
