In a blink of eye, the holy month of Ramadan came to an end as the moon hasn’t been sighted yesterday in Saudi Arabia and other nations of the world. As the whole month of 30 days completed today, the month of Shawwal begins tomorrow. Sighting of the moon signifies the end of Ramadan and arrival of Eid.
Muslims from all over the world will celebrate Eid tomorrow with exception of countries such as India, Pakistan and Bangladesh. These countries will celebrate Eid day after tomorrow.
Since the moon wasn’t sighted yesterday which means the Eid will be on Sunday in Saudi Arabia and other nations. This year’s Eid will not be the same as most of the countries are suffering from coronavirus due to which Mosques are closed, shops are closed, markets are locked and social gatherings are banned.
Eid can’t exist without people embracing each other, without praying the Salatul Fitr and without shopping. It is tough time for all of us as Allah ﷻ is testing us through this pandemic.

We have celebrated Ramadan in isolation without visiting mosque for once. So, we should not lose hope and pray to Allah for quick recovery of the world from this virus. We must pray at home, eat and enjoy with our families and should not go in physical to meet our relatives. Technology can be best utilised to socialise with family and friends.
