Pallavi Aware International School organised an event to mark Ramzan and Id festivities virtually. Students explained the importance of Ramzan and Id-ul-Fitr to the audience. Muslims fast during Ramzan, the ninth month of the Islamic calendar. The purpose of fasting is to understand the sufferings of the poor and the have-nots. Fasting is a chance to get closer to God and a way to become more compassionate to those in need, students observed. Students spoke about how a fasting person spends his day. People fast from dawn to dusk during Ramzan and pray at night.
Speakers at the event said that during Ramzan, the Holy Quran was revealed upon Prophet Muhammad. The holy book is a guide to humanity and teaches compassion and universal brotherhood.
At the end of the month-long fasting, Id-ul-Fitr is celebrated. Before Id day, people offer Fitra. Fitra is a gift of an amount of wheat or equivalent money that is given to the needy. It is obligatory upon every able Muslim. Without giving this, their Id is not complete. Children receive Idi which a gift or money that is usually given to children by elder relatives and family friends as part of the celebration.
At the culmination of the virtual event, students sang Naats or hymns and wished their friends and classmates a very happy Id.
