Happy Eid Al-Adha.. Egypt and the world celebrated Eid Al-Adha, the essence of the joy and happiness, despite the nightmare of the Coronavirus, which imposed its conditions on most of Egyptians, who followed the precautionary measures, and committed to the social distance, and quarantine during the past period, but it seems that the joy of Eid Al-adha made the Egyptians forget coronavirus, so they traveled and celebrated as if coronavirus has  ended. they also forgot or forgot about the drowning-related accidents and its victims in Al Nakheel beach in Alexandria and the beach of Baltim in Kafr El-Sheikh.

We do not mind living the joy of Eid Al-Adha, but we also have to commit to precautionary measures. We celebrate Eid Al-Adha with different ways, customs and rituals with implementing the necessary measures such as the social distance, wearing masks, washing hands and avoiding crowds.

We have the ability to avoid visiting the corniche and beaches in all governorates. These conditions and precautions will not prevent the joy of  eid-Al-Adha, but they will spare us a lot of troubles, especially since there is a second expected wave of the pandemic, despite the fact that the first wave hasn’t ended yet, even if the numbers have decreased.

I watched the rituals of Hajj this year performed by about ten thousand people wearing masks, compared to about three million two years ago, and amid  all the  precautionary measures that I have been keen to follow through the satellite channels, I pray for Egypt, its people and all the peace-loving, to manage to eradicate the pandemic, may God help the scientists in reaching the vaccine that is treating the pandemic.

The first and second days of Eid passed, while the Egyptians are committed to the instructions and performed Eid prayer at home  to avoid religious gatherings. Most of Egyptians this year were keen on the safe process of sacrificing animals in slaughterhouses.

I also noticed that the streets and squares of Cairo were free of the celebrators of Eid Al-Adha  in the first days, while the police forces were deployed in the streets, squares, and at the entrances to cities.

Despite the small number of children in the streets to celebrate Eid, the manifestations of celebration appeared in hanging balloons and decorations in front of mosques and at streets, and allocating loudspeakers to broadcast Eid takbeer from mosques, In a healthy phenomenon imposed by Coronavirus this year.

May God grant Egypt, its president, and its army success, and victory. May god Keep our country, our borders and our rights safe and secure from every aggressor.

May God make it a happy Eid for us, and our lovers everywhere, Happy Eid Al-Adha.
