An Eid message from youth worker Latifa

Eid Mubarak! This is a short message from youth worker Latifa to all the young people who would normally attend our youth centres, and will be celebrating Eid this weekend.

Due to the current situation by COVID19, this years’ Eid celebration can still be a memorable one despite the restrictions advised by the government.

Instead of the usual routine of going to a massive congregation to pray the Eid prayer, it is appropriate to pray individually or with your family members at home due to the masjids (mosques) being closed. To connect to family members of other households, Zoom has been a growing way of communication as it has a clear interface where you can enjoy seeing and speaking to your loved ones.

Although this time can be frustrating, it is not all doom and gloom. We can use this quality time to bond closely to those loved ones. Think of all the things that previously occupied your time and prevented you from eating with those you value, board games, a short walk or even watching a movie with your children. This is a time to capitalise on this so that these new memories are created and last a lifetime.

I wish you and your loved ones a safe and wonderful Eid!
