Mirwaiz appeals people to observe Eid ul Fitr with simplicity
Srinagar: Shab-e-Qadr was observed across the entire subcontinent and South Asia including Kashmir with religious gaiety and fervor.
A huge religious congregation in Kashmir was held at the Jamia Masjid in Srinagar in which thousands of devotees from across the Valley participated in night long prayers.
On the occasion, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq while addressing the gathering shed light on the significance of Shab-e-Qadr, the message of holy Quran and urged Muslims to adopt the Islamic way of life.
Terming the challenges and problems that the Muslim Ummah was caught in today as greatly being a result of deviation from the teachings of holy Quran, he said a flawed understanding of the message of Islam and following Islam as per convenience and sectarian leanings rather than in its spirit was responsible for the mess Muslims were entangled in worldwide.
Referring to the ongoing situation in Kashmir, Mirwaiz appealed the people of Kashmir to observe Eid al-Fitr with simplicity and urged people to think of the underprivileged, the poor, the orphans and the needy and share celebration and happiness of the festival with them.
