COVID-19 Changes Ramadan Celebrations

CITY COLLEGE–Muslims worldwide have had to adjust the way they celebrate Ramadan and Eid because of COVID.

“Because of COVID, a lot of stuff I did is no longer happening,” Mohammed Rahat said. The Baruch College student prays at the Bazar Jame Masjid in the Bronx and worshipers can no longer do things like break the fast for Iftar together. “We had an Iftar at the mosque and people donated food so everyone could eat. The whole community would come together and enjoy the time. But now it is not going to happen at the mosque. They will have water and dates to serve to those that come to the mosque, but that will be all.”
