Muslims throughout the country yesterday celebrated Eid-Al-Fitr, the end of the Ramadan Holy month of prayer and fasting.

They did so as always by sharing.

Twelve-year-old Saifullah Muavia Khan said he completed the 30-day fasting and prayer spiritually stronger.

“It is based on my strong belief and dedication throughout the month of Ramadan and waking up at 4:15am every morning to do my prayers,” he said.

“I was able to get through the 30 days without any complaints because I am used to prayer sessions from a very young age,” he said.

The praying and fasting ended with a peaceful message by the Imaam, Maulana Faiyaz Ali Khan, at the Suva Muslim League’s Jame Masjid (mosque) in Toorak, Suva.

Eid is not only celebrated within Muslim families but all multicultural families around Fiji, said Maulana Ali Khan.

“This is a celebration of sharing and caring for the poor and wishing for peace to all those around us. This is a time of the year when we find peace within ourselves and goodwill to everyone,” he said.

Fiji Muslim League’s former general secretary and president of Forum Eslam Pacific Hasan Khan said the festival of Eid-Al-Fitr is the culmination of 30 days of fasting and prayers during the Islamic holy month of Ramadan.

“Eid is about rejuvenation of faith and commitment to serve Allah (God) and humanity at large through Islam, the religion of peace submission to Allah.”
