Today marks the auspicious occasion of Eid-al-Fitr. The festival is observed to honour the sacrifice of Prophet Mohammed, also recognised as the messenger of God, who was willing to sacrifice his son on God's instruction. Before he could sacrifice his son, God provided a lamb instead. It is believed that it's because of God's intervention that a goat is sacrificed each year on this occasion.
Usually, Eid is celebrated in style by the celebrities, who are mostly seen dazzling the Iftar parties. However, this year celebrities and fans will give it a miss as the festival that shares love, blessings, and good wishes with loved ones, will be all about social distancing amid the COVID-19 lockdown. Mollywood celebrities Prithviraj, Dulquer Salmaan, Nivin Pauly among others have taken to their social media handles to wish fans on Eid.
Check out the wishes here!
