Muslims keep off mosques as they mark end of Ramadhan

Every year, during the end of Ramadhan, streets in major towns light up with people donning white and black.

Sounds of drums rend the air as hundreds of Muslims move to and from mosques to mark the end of the Holy month.

This was not the case this year on Sunday. Muslims celebrated Idd-ul-Fitr, a religious festival for breaking the fast, in silence.

Normally, there would be gatherings in mosques for Idd-ul-Fitr prayer services and meeting friends and families for feasts. This time round, mosques remained closed as gatherings were banned to curb the spread of Covid-19.

The special Eid prayers – usually conducted in mosques or in parks – were offered within households as gifts exchanged without much celebration.
