Celebrating Eid-ul-Fitr with due dignity at Matlab. After a month of fasting, the holy Eid-ul-Fitr is being celebrated on Friday (May 14) in the south as well as across the country. Thousands of devout Muslims took part in Eid prayers at the mosque this morning. In the Corona situation, like last year, this year too, after the prayers, the familiar scene of hugging was not seen.
Devotees have been flocking to various mosques since 7 am on Friday to take part in Eid-ul-Fitr prayers. Due to Karomahari, Eid prayers were held in the mosque as per the instructions of the government. No big congregation was held anywhere. Eid prayers have been held in more than a thousand mosques in Matlab Dakshin Upazila.

The khutbah is recited at the end of the prayers. After that prayers and munajat were held. However, in case of coronavirus, the devotees maintain a safe physical distance by following the instructions.
At the end of the prayers, special prayers are offered for the welfare of the country and the nation. As well as the recent global coronavirus infected and killed prayers are offered. However, after the Eid prayers, the ever-familiar scene of the worshipers shaking hands and hugging did not catch the eye this time. To prevent corona infection, the worshipers refrain from following the government’s health rules.
