BHUBANESWAR: Muslims throughout the country on Saturday celebrated Eid al-Adha or Bakrid carrying all the necessary precautions and offered prayers at their houses maintaining social space.
Authorities had made elaborate arrangements for the smooth conduct of this festival. They’d persuaded people of their community to stick to the instructions for the prayers rather than seeing the mosques or even Eid gahs.
That is actually the next Muslim festival to be seen amid the coronavirus constraints throughout the world. Eid ul-Fitr was likewise marked by non invasive parties on May 25.
Eid al-Adha, also referred to as Bakrid or a festival of sacrifice, is seen on the first day of Dhu al-hijja, the twelfth and last month of the Islamic lunar calendar. In addition, it marks the end of the Haj pilgrimage, which has been cancelled because of this pandemic this season.
“Although the parties looked dim, we offered prayers at our houses after the government recommendations. We prayed for unity, peace, ethics, international brotherhood and also an end for this particular outbreak,” Mujibur Rahman, a retired government worker and a former associate of Urdu Academy in town, said.
“Without a doubt, we overlooked the charm of bulk prayers at Eid gah or even mosques in addition to inviting visitors into our houses. But observing the authorities Covid guidelines is more significant than festivities at this juncture,” Abdul Hafiz, a research scholar in town, said.
