Celebrating Eid Al Fitr 2020 - Stones International Blog

Eid-Al-Fitr is one of the holiest festivals in Islam, celebrated worldwide. The most common way of greeting each other a blessed festival is Eid Mubarak - where Eid means 'feast' or 'festival' and Mubarak means 'blessed', signifying love and laughter among themselves. People gather to offer prayers to the almighty Allah, be thankful for their lives, exchange gifts and wishes and take part in social gatherings.

Every year, the United Arab Emirates goes a long way in making this festival a memorable one. Decorations are all over the places - in malls, shops, public parks, houses, etc. This has always been a time for cheerful adornments and extravagant festivities. However, due to the unexpected pandemic situation, this year's Eid will be somewhat different than usual. The practices will be unique, but the significance and spirituality are the same. The government of the UAE has issued guidelines to avoid social gatherings and adhere to certain safety measures, putting great emphasis on 'social distancing'. This is because alleviating the spread of the virus still remains the priority as this will help in keeping you and your loved ones safe and healthy.

Celebrations in 2020

This is a time where one doesn't need to be disappointed but rather be thankful to Allah that he has allowed us to find him within ourselves.

This Eid, here are some of the best ways for you to celebrate amid lockdown.
  • Technology has now made things easier. Even though physical gatherings cannot be observed at the moment, there are lots of software and applications that can be used for videoconferencing, to at least make it possible for everyone to be together. Lavishing meals can be shared with others over a perfect Instagram post with a delicious caption!
  • During long holidays, visiting the shopping centers can be a relaxing schedule. Operating time for the centers is 9 AM to 7 PM (until further notice) on account of the extended sanitization drive. Be careful and adhere to the precautionary measures.
  • Since Eid is a time for obligatory charitable acts, you can donate monetary offerings or groceries to the needy.
  • The mosques and places of worship remain closed until further notice. Hence, the prayers should be offered at your homes. May the almighty Allah keep showering his blessings and the world quickly comes out of this misfortune.
  • You can exchange gifts and blessings with your near and dear ones - without being a part of large gatherings.
  • You can decorate your homes, dress nicely for the occasion, dine together with your family and exchange conversations.
  • You can spend the rest of the day doing things to keep yourself occupied inside the comforts of your home.
No pandemic can distance us from our religious beliefs. Let's defeat the virus in this! Eid will be as divine and joyful as it has always been. It will still be celebrated with the same enthusiasm as every year. To all our Muslim friends, brothers and sisters, may you and your family be blessed with happiness, strength, and courage - Eid Mubarak!
