Muslims around the world are preparing to celebrate Eid al-Fitr – one of the holiest occasions in the Islamic calendar – while coping with coronavirus restrictions.

Iran declared Wednesday as the final day of the holy fasting month of Ramadan and Thursday as the start of the two-day holiday. 

Muslims celebrate the festivity as it marks the end of the holy month of Ramadan, during which they refrain from eating, drinking, smoking, and indulging in anything that is in excess or ill-natured from dawn to dusk.

Every year, millions of Muslims around the globe celebrate Eid al-Fitr by attending mass prayers, listening to sermons and paying Zakat al-Fitr. However, this year’s celebrations of Eid have changed in style as mass gatherings have been canceled in many parts of the world due to the novel coronavirus pandemic.
