It brings people from far and near to pray and celebrate 🙂
In Nigeria, the most populous country on the continent, minor prayers to mark the start of Shawwal—’festival of breaking fasting’ open the celebration. Besides the regular practice of ram-slaughtering and cooking different varieties of African food for merriment; it’s really a time for reflection and to promote unity among people.
For the first time after three years in Katsina—a north western state in Nigeria, Eid-El-Fitr was celebrated with hearts full of joy. The state was initially facing serious cholera outbreak and insecurity.
