With the global pandemic, came many restrictions on social interactions and public gatherings. The impact had far-reaching effects, to the extent that this year’s annual pilgrimage to Makkah in Saudi Arabia was limited to only 1,000 pilgrims residing in Saudi Arabia.
Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau had posted an Eid Al Adha greeting message yesterday. And today, the Prime Minister posted a video in which he’s seen with a Muslim family making some Eid cards for their loved ones.
The Prime Minister Tweeted, “Many Muslim families are celebrating Eid al-Adha differently this year. I joined the Chowdhury family this week to make some Eid cards for their loved ones who they can’t be with right now because of COVID-19. I hope you too find new ways to celebrate this year. Eid Mubarak!“
On Facebook, the Prime Minister wrote, “Muslims in Canada and around the world are celebrating Eid al-Adha. It’s usually a time for families and loved ones to come together to pray, share a meal, and give thanks for the blessings in life. This year, as we continue to fight COVID-19, Muslim families are celebrating differently. I joined the Chowdhury family this week to make some Eid cards for their friends and family because it’s important to find new ways to celebrate while still following health guidelines. Happy Eid al-Adha, everyone. Eid Mubarak!”
