Eid-ul-Fitr : a celebration of Muslim faith in India

Eid-ul-Fitr : a celebration of Muslim faith in India

Islam is alive and thriving in India! Islam is the second most practiced religion in India and Eid-ul-fitr is the second biggest festival (after Eid ul adha or Bakr Eid) of the followers of Islam around the world. Also known as the festival of fast breaking Eid ul fitr marks the end of the holy month of Ramadan. Muslim devotees practice a month of fasting, going without food or water through the month of Ramadan, the ninth month of the Islamic calendar. It is believed to be the toughest of all the fasts and its end is celebrated on Eid. It is also a month of prayer and sharing. It is considered noble to help people or do charity during the month. The morning to evening fast starts with sehri, which refers to the early morning meal consumed by muslims before the fast begins for the day. Paired with sehri is iftar or the evening meal with which the daylong fast is broken. Traditionally dates are eaten to break the fast, emulating prophet Muhammed who broke his fast in this fashion. Each day of the fast is called the roza, which literally translates into fasting daily. The tough month of Ramadan ends with the celebration of Eid. The day is celebrated with massed Namaz or prayer in the morning. Devout muslims do Namaz five times every day at fixed times and this namaz can be performed alone. Eid namaz is of a higher importance and is performed at the Eidgah or mosque with a congregation. Women are barred from entering but men gather at the nearest mosque for this collective prayer. Women perform the Eid namaz at home and prepare delicacies for their families. A special delicacy sevai made on this day gave it another name - meethi eid, which means sweet in Hindi. Eid greetings are passed on to each other with a hug and gifts called Eidi. This is a good day for beggars as they get a lot of alms from people in a festive mood. Beggars gather where Namaz takes place and wait for their share of eid blessings. The followers of Islam celebrate Eid all over the world as a symbol of strength and self-control and unite in the name of Allah. The trying month of Ramadan ends in the celebration of eid to mark the blessings of Allah on to the one with absolute self-restraint.

Trump Hosts Dinner For Muslim Holiday of Ramadan

Trump Hosts Dinner For Muslim Holiday of Ramadan

(7 Jun 2018) President Donald Trump on Wednesday will hosted his first White House dinner for Islam's holy month of Ramadan, an overture that has surprised many people in the Muslim community after he skipped hosting such a meal last year. The dinner comes as the Supreme Court considers legal challenges to Trump's travel ban, which critics say unfairly targets some Muslim-majority countries. A ruling is expected as early as this month. Press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said she expected about 30-40 people to attend the iftar dinner, which breaks a daylong fast. The audience will include cabinet members and representatives of the Washington diplomatic community, including ambassadors. Several Muslim civil rights groups pushed back, organizing a "NOT Trump's Iftar" protest to be held Wednesday evening at a park across from the White House. The groups say Trump's heated rhetoric has contributed to an increase in bullying and discrimination against Muslim Americans.

I've been coming to this animal market for the past three days to buy a goat for Eid. But they are selling for double the normal price, so I couldn't make a deal. The children at home are demanding that I buy a goat for Eid, but when I come here to the market, they are asking 15-thousand to 20-thousand rupees (320 US dollars to 429 US dollars) for a goat which is beyond my price range. And as Eid is coming closer, the prices are going up. Here they are asking 32-thousand rupees (685 US dollars) for an animal that's worth 12-thousand rupees (257 US dollars). Because of these price increases, I am really upset. I've even worn out my shoes walking around the market searching for an animal for Eid." 9. Wide, top shot of animal market 10.

SOUNDBITE (Urdu) Zahid Hussain, animal seller: "We feed these animals throughout the year and spend lots of money on their food, and it all costs a lot of money. We spend a huge amount of cash transporting these animals to the market, and obviously we have to cover our expenses from the sale of the animals. We don't have any other way to cover our costs" 16.

SOUNDBITE (Urdu) Nasarullah Shagee, leader of Jamat-e-Islami religious political party: "Eid-al-Adha and the Hajj both basically bring a lot of economic activity to society. People buy animals to sacrifice, and thousands of people get involved in this business, both rich and poor. Along with this, the animal's skin and meat goes to poor people. A number of NGOs (non-governmental organisations) also get involved distributing meat to the poor." 21. Close up, cutaway of hands 22. Wide street scene, showing animals outside people's homes 23.

Various of knives being sharpened at street stall STORYLINE: Residents of Pakistan's largest city, Karachi, are gearing up for the Muslim Eid-al-Adha religious festival, which is celebrated this weekend. Traditionally, many people buy animals to slaughter during Eid-al-Adha. Some of the meat is given to the poor, some is given to friends and neighbours, and a third portion is kept for the family. Karachi has some of Pakistan's largest animal markets, and before Eid, they are filled with buyers and vendors offering camels, goats and cows for sale. One of these markets is spread over 600 acres and holds 192-thousand large animals, and 115-thousand small ones, which arrive from all across Pakistan. This year, however, the economic downturn in the country is affecting sales of animals for slaughter. Many customers complain that prices are too high, while vendors say they are incurring higher costs to raise the animals and transport them to market, which in turn pushes the selling price up. Muhammed Afsar says his children have been pestering him to buy a goat to sacrifice during the Eid celebrations. But he says the asking prices are too high, double what he reckons it should be, and he simply cannot find a reasonably-priced goat.
