It is wonderful to see photos of our pupils celebrating Ramadan. Here are reflections from the pupils on how lockdown has impacted the way they celebrated it this year.
Ramadan and Lockdown
Ramadan is usually a joyous time of spiritual and personal growth. We see our families and friends for the iftar (the breaking of the fast) and it is a time of great social gathering and community. However, lockdown has made it very different this year :
Countdown to Eid-ul-Fitr
Of course, this too will be very different as we won’t be able to see a lot of our family or friends. We won’t be able to visit the mosque for Eid prayers. However, we will try and make the most of it by praying at home and being together with our parents and siblings. The main thing is to be with our loved ones and to appreciate what we have.
We wish all our friends who will be celebrating it, Eid Mubarak!
