Eid-Al-Adha In Pakistan: What To Expect
Eid-Al-Adha is just around the corner in Pakistan. However, the sentiments remain mixed because the coronavirus upset is still in the air. We feel that perhaps this is the last or second last swing of the corona upset. However, what it is really doing is that it is literally bogging everyone down with eye infection, fever, body aches, and allergies.
Truth be told, Eid-Al-Adha is a bigger festivity than Eid-Al-Fitr, though it is simple in observation and practice. There is a lot of meat involved and that is called ‘Qurbani’.
The difference this year is that there is absolutely no sense of time, morning, evening or night for that matter, for the corona pandemic has literally shifted the global sphere and America needs not to worry because Pakistan too is a part of that global sphere.
Nonetheless, if you are in Pakistan, where Eid is celebrated in one of the most highest fashion and rigor, then here is what to expect off it this year:
Eid In Pakistan: Here Is What To Expect
- Simplicity yet happiness for Eid-Al-Adha comes once a year and by Shariah law we are on the Islamic calendar so it is going to be a big celebration: be it in homes or otherwise.
- A lot of meat means a lot of food and Pakistanis will be having a lot of lunches, dinners and so on in the 2-3 days of Eid.
- New clothes, certain mall hopping, meeting relatives, here and there should be a common for Eid-Al-Adha.
- Dimness because things aren’t the same this year. A lot of malls and relatives’ are closed. Restaurants are the same. Thus, Eid this year will not be the same.
- This year, Eid-Al-Adha will be a festivity that is just going to pass. It is lesser in celebration than Eid-Al-Fitr anyways, “Eidi wise”, but nonetheless…
The corona pandemic has literally bogged everyone down. Moreover, it is just not ending. It is real, it is frightening and it has already taken the lives of many people. Furthermore, it is better if people sit in their homes this year on Eid to be careful of not catching the virus, especially through the meat as well.
Eid-Al-Adha is falling on August 1st and there will be three days of celebration.
