Muslims celebrate

Shayal Devi
Tuesday, July 29, 2014

LOVE and togetherness are two of the foremost values associated with the celebration of Eid-Ul-Fitr by millions of Muslims across the globe.

Here at home, nearly 3000 people gathered at the Lautoka Jame Masjid to celebrate the end of the holy month of Ramadan.

Priest Haji Hafiz Musa Patel said Muslims around the country had fasted for a month and conducted the mandatory five prayers a day without fail.

"People also gave selflessly to the poor and needy.

"They also took out 40 per cent of their pay and donated it to the poor. They did not only give the poor monetary assistance but food items and clothes," he said.

He said they offered prayers for all citizens of the country.

"This was to spread peace and happiness to all. It is very important for people of our country to be united and live together in harmony."
