Ramadan ends – level 3

15-04-2024 15:00

Eid al-Fitr, a festival that marks the end of Ramadan, was celebrated globally with prayers, family reunions, and festive activities.

However, the ongoing war in Gaza cast a shadow over the holiday for many Muslims. Despite the festive atmosphere, the humanitarian crisis in Gaza and the threat of Israel’s ground offensive in Rafah dampened the celebrations. Turkey’s President Erdogan expressed support for Gaza, and he emphasized the need for peace and tranquility. Similar sentiments were echoed in Kenya and Indonesia. In Malaysia, Prime Minister Anwar Ibrahim called for unity and respect among diverse groups.

While joyous, the celebrations were marked by awareness of the ongoing crisis in Gaza, highlighting the importance of solidarity and compassion.

Difficult words: cast a shadow (to cause something to be less good or enjoyable), dampen (to make it less strong or intense), tranquility (a peaceful, calm state), sentiment (a view or opinion).
