Eid to be celebrated differently for Muslims across Greater Sydney

, Eid to be celebrated differently for Muslims across Greater Sydney, The Nzuchi Times

Muslims across Canterbury, Liverpool, Fairfield, and Bankstown are forced to celebrate the holiest day of the year confined to their own homes on Tuesday instead of the usual large family gathering. Lakemba Labor MP Jihad Dib said it was important for Muslims to stay “socially connected” even though they could not celebrate as usual. “Anyone who’s got a voice is encouraging people to make sure that we find new ways to celebrate Eid and to acknowledge Eid, certainly well within the rules but also to make sure we stay…socially connected but we stay physically distanced,” he told Sky News. Mr Dib said Muslims can celebrate with COVID-19 restrictions in place by having activities to spend time with the family, mosques performing online services, and giving gifts in advance through mail. “Economically it has a huge impact because people do spend an incredible amount of money in preparation for Eid.” “These businesses that are mostly affected are small family businesses who, for a couple of times a year, that’s when they really go out and do…the most business that they can.”
