Mahottarai, October 25:
Muslims celebrated â€˜Idâ€™ for two days in the district. While, some observed it yesterday after having sighted the moon on Monday, a majority of them celebrated the festival today.
The Muslim community began Roja (fasting) after gathering in a Masjid and performing Baju (purifying oneself by washing face and hands) in which they also recite the Namaj. The Roja concluded today after the rising moon was sighted yesterday night.
â€œRoja is one of the five fundamental things in Islamâ€, a Muslim mulawi Taher Hussian says, adding according to the Islamic Sariat, all adolescent Muslims have to observe Roja in the month of Ramjan.
