As the Muslim community look up to the sky tonight to sight the new moon to begin their month long fasting for Eid, the Fiji Muslim League is strictly advising all Muslims not to organise Iftaar or any social gatherings.

League President Haji Hafizud Dean Khan says all Muslims are advised to break their fast at home with their household family members only.

He adds that no Muslim family should invite any Moulvi to their homes for prayers.

Khan says that since they will not be able to organise a gathering to break fast in their mosque or at their homes for the disadvantaged community, members are recommended to provide food items for the needy and their neighbours.

He says this Muslims who intend to help the underprivileged can do it individually or they could forward their contributions to the League for the education of underprivileged students at Islamic Institute of the South Pacific Girls (Fatimah Girls Hostel) and Boys Hostel and towards the FML welfare fund where distributing of food packs is done throughout the year.

Meanwhile, Eid is likely to be celebrated on the 23rd of May.
