The holy month of Ramazan has commenced and Muslims – and even non-Muslims – have taken to fasting around the globe. Many celebrities, be it our very own stars or those from Bollywood and Hollywood have also wished each other on this auspicious occasion.
Once again, the holy month, as well as Eid-ul-Fitr, will be celebrated amid rising coronavirus cases and deaths. But we suppose one can celebrate virtually? Saba Qamar, Ayeza Khan, Danish Taimoor and many other local celebrities extended wishes on Instagram, along with photos of a perfect crescent moon on Tuesday.
On the other hand, Amna Ilyas posted a photo of herself with the caption, “To all my friends, fans and loved ones… life is too short to keep grudges. Kaha, suna aur maaf (Said, heard and forgiven). Ramzan Mubarak!”
Singer Umair Jaswal posted, “Ramzan Mubarak to all of you. Remember us in your prayers. May Allah shower his blessings upon all of us and may He give us strength, protect us all and heal the ones who are fighting for their lives. May Allah bless the departed souls and give their families strength and sabr (patience.) Ameen.”
Others like Aiman and Minal Khan, Saboor Aly, Hira Mani, Mohib Mirza, Saba Faisal also extended heartfelt wishes for all their followers.
