A “march” was organised the night before Eid (Sunday). Kids from Rafid held candles and we walked throughout town chanting Eid takbeerat.

Leaving the mosque after Eid prayer

On the first day of Eid, Eid prayer is prayed at the mosque in the morning. The kashaf (scouts) also prepared breakfast right after the prayer.

The kashaf (scouts) in my town hosted an Eid festival on Wednesday. Inflatable games were brought and everyone enjoyed a very festive evening. We also sold some yummy treats we made to help fund a volunteer project we’re working on.


This is what my Eid looked like this year, how was yous?
