Ujjain (Madhya Pradesh): Dawoodi Bohra community will celebrate Eid-ul-Fitr on Friday. It marks the end of the holy month of Ramzan, a time of fasting, prayers and spiritual reflection.
Dressed in their best attire, community members gathered in their local Masjids and community centres to offer prayers on the eve of Eid-ul-Fitr. PRO Shaikh Aliasgar Moaiyadi said, “We traditionally celebrate Eid and the breaking of the fast by eating ‘kharak’ (dried stuffed dates) and by preparing and serving ‘sheer khurma’. After joining the early morning prayers on the day of Eid, community members will meet and greet each other and will collectively pray for everyone’s good health, happiness and prosperity.”
