Muslims in Fiji observe Eid-al-Fitr today, which marks the culmination of the blessed month of Ramadan.

The festival is synonymous with joy and thanksgiving and in Fiji, it is also a day to bring people of different religious background, races and ethnicity together for a time of sharing says Fiji Muslim League general secretary Taabish Akbar.

“Just like Diwali and Christmas, every one is invited to the doorstep for a time of sharing and bonding,” Akbar told FijiLive.

He said Muslims have only two important events on the calendar, one of which is the Eid al-Fitr, the end of fasting. The other is Eid al-Adha or Eid-e Qurban, celebrated to commemorate Prophet Abraham's willingness to sacrifice his son for God.

Muslims gather at outdoor fields or mosques after sunrise today to recite congregational prayers before the three-day festivities with family and friends.

Normally, he said, women will be the busiest over the next three days to prepare traditional delicacies.

Aside from sumptuous feasts with the family, friends, and relatives, some Muslims visit cemeteries to pray for their deceased loved ones.
