Preparation for Eid-al-Fitr has started amongst our Muslim brothers and sisters around the country.

Eid, later this week will mark the end of Ramadan, the Islamic Holy month of fasting. It will fall upon the sighting of the moon on either the 29 or the 30th day of fasting.

People have started flocking to towns and cities to take advantage of latest Eid fashion, or shopping for ok products.

Premila Singh of Namadi Heights was excited as she went through latest Eid wear at Jacks of Fiji, in Suva yesterday.

Ms Singh said for her Eid was just like her own Diwali festival.

“It is an exciting time for us non Muslims as well because we get to go to our Muslim friends and families and celebrate this joyous occasion,” she said.

“The best part of Eid is sewai which is the most popular sweet dish during the day.

“Fiji is a multicultural society and like every other festival, we all get to celebrate it and join in Muslim family’s celebration.”

Customers are taking advantage of the latest Eid wear which is in stock at Jacks outlets Fiji wide.

Jack’s Suva retail manager Hazrat Ali said Eid was unique and a day when Muslims thank the God for having them given the will and strength to observe fast and obey his commandments during the holy month of Ramadan.

Jack’s outlet is offering a wide range of Eid wear for kids and adults and in variety of range, colors and price to choose from.

“The shop is buzzing with customers as they come in to purchase outfits for Eid and we have a wide range of clothes, jewelries, accessories and shoes for everyone,” Mr Ali said.

“The prices are affordable as well; we have designer wears, latest trends of Salwar Kameez, sherwani’s saris and much more.”
