Cleric asks Muslims to spend half of Eid budget on poor


Lucknow, May 3: Sunni cleric Maulana Khalid Rashid Firangi Mahali has appealed to Muslims to keep aside 50 per cent of the Eid budget for the poor.

“Keep aside half of the money you plan to spend on Eid for our poor sisters and brothers who cannot afford clothes and food. Celebrate Eid in a subdued manner and pray to the Almighty to help us get rid of the pandemic,” he said in a video message released on Sunday.

He said that the festival of Eid was a ”gift” for the month-long fast.

The cleric also asked people to observe the rules of lockdown and adhere to all safety protocols.

He asked Muslims to celebrate the festival with ”sewai”, a traditional sweet prepared on Eid.

With meat shops closed during lockdown, a large Muslim population is disappointed that Eid would be celebrated without the mandatory ”kebabs” and ”biryani” this year.

  1. Firangi haye ye copy cat …

    Maulana Sajjad Noumani of Maharashtra appealed 4 days earlier to not buy new clothes or make unnecessary expenses in Corona divine calamity.
    Rather spend the money on the poor, needy and destitute.

  2. plz don’t call cleric as Islam has no fatherhood or celrgy, futhremore, no need to mention sunni or shia, if there is some controversy then we can idenftify his sect, Khalid Firangi is gutter leader, no need to give his news.
