To celebrate  Eid-ul-Fitr, thousands of devotees gathered early in the morning at 6 am to offer namaz at Delhi’s iconic Jama Masjid, for the first time since it was suspended two years ago due to Covid 19 pandemic.

Eid-ul- Fitr is one of the most important festivals of the Muslim community. It marks the end of the holy month of Ramadan, a month when Muslims across the world fast from dawn to dusk and offer regular prayers.

Since the festival was back in its pre-pandemic mode after being suspended for two years due to Covid-19 restrictions in the national capital, it was celebrated with even greater pomp and joy this year.

“During the Covid-19 pandemic, we didn’t celebrate Eid very well. Everyone stayed inside their houses. After two years we are finally getting back the opportunity again to do so. We even bought new clothes this year,’’ says Mohammad Yaqub, a devotee and resident of Nizamuddin in Delhi.

Besides offering prayers, wearing their best attire, believers also shopped with great enthusiasm and invited their loved ones over for Eid feast, with a wide selection of delicacies to mark the event.
