Second year running Muslims nationwide observe their fast during lockdown

Hasnoor Hussain

NEARLY two weeks in to the holy month of Ramadan and much of society has opened up to residents.

It is very different from how Ramadan looked like in 2020.

Last year, the whole of the Malaysia were in a strict lockdown with everyone forced to stay indoors and the only part of society opened were essential shops. 

Mosques were also closed for prayers and night worship and it was the first time in history when people couldn’t congregate during a special holy month. 

However, this year, Ramadan commenced as some restrictions eased.

This has been one of the most significant rules relaxed as during Ramadan, Muslim family and friends would invite each other round for iftar to break fast together. – April 25, 2021.
