Eid-ul-Adha: Pray for Ghana to defeat coronavirus - NPP urges Muslims

Indonesian Muslims, wearing face masks and getting temperature checks as a precaution against the novel coronavirus, performed morning prayers on Friday (July 31) to celebrate the festival of Eid al-Adha in mosques with reduced capacity as well as on the streets.

On this day, Muslims sacrifice a goat, a sheep, or any other animal to commemorate the willingness of Ibrahim to surrender his son Ismael to fulfil Allah's command.

As these two historic events are being observed, the NPP is pleased to wish all Muslims the very best in these celebrations both of which mark an important milestone on the Islamic calendar.

Just like Eid ul Fitr which signifies the completion of the Holy Month of Ramadan, this will be a different kind of Eid where a majority if not all will adhere to the set measures like social distancing and staying at home to prevent further spread of the disease.

However, this year Eid festivities across the world will be a low-key affair amid the coronavirus pandemic.
