Ramadan returns to normal

MALAYSIA greets Ramadan with mass prayer as Covid curbs ease.

Muslims nationwide have been allowed to conduct congregational Tarawih prayers at mosques and suraus without physical distancing, which began last night.

The return to normal is in line with the transition to the endemic phase, which took effect last night after more than two years of the Covid-19 pandemic.

The easing of restrictions, which allows Tarawih prayers to take place without physical distancing, heralds a return to normalcy, at least for Ramadan, which has been missing for the majority of Muslims in the country.

Shoppers and traders expressed gratitude and regarded Ramadan this time as more meaningful with Muslims around the country thronging markets, bazaars, and shopping centres to buy essential items. - April 4, 2022.
