2021 Eid Il Fitr: Nigerians Reflect On Faith, Insecurity and Socio-Economic Issues

Ramadan is the holy month in which Muslims fast and refrain from eating and drinking during daylight hours. Between sunrise and sunset, Muslims abstain from food and drink, the physical ritual allows them to understand the suffering of others. Fasting during Ramadan is the fourth of the Five Pillars of Islam, which form the basis of how Muslims live their lives.

 

The month of Ramadan lasts for 29 to 30 days each year depending on the sighting of the moon.

 

At the end of Ramadan, the end of the Holy month is celebrated with a festival - Eid al-Fitr - or the Festival of the Breaking of the Fast. It begins when the first sight of the new moon is seen in the sky.

 

During Eid al-Fitr, it is customary to donate to the poor, families and Friends which is called Zakat-ul-Fitr.  

 

As over 2 billion Muslims across the globe mark the event, Nigeria  the Africa's largest economy with over 50% Muslims populations is among the nations that celebrates the season with a two-day holiday.

 

This season is a time for deep reflection as Nigeria goes through a challenging phase and Muslims at the Alausa Central Mosque, Lagos share their perspective on the issues of faith, insecurity and socio-economic developments in the country.
