It was sold out at Tryvann in Oslo when the Rabita Mosque organized a drive-in celebration of the Muslim holiday Eid al-Fitr.

“It’s a full house and an electric atmosphere,” said Project Manager Arshad Jamil on the phone to NTB just before the event started on Sunday afternoon.

“People are in a good mood,” he said.

The coronavirus has made it difficult with a traditional celebration of Eid al-Fitr this year. But at Tryvann, the participants were allowed to sit safely in their cars while there was a program from the stage, prayer, circus artists between the cars, singing, entertainment and distribution of ice cream, snacks and sweets to adults and children.

“Of course, everything happens in accordance with the rules on infection control,” Jamil assures.

Eid al-Fitr marks the end of the Muslim fasting month of Ramadan.
