Movit Products Limited has this Friday on May 06th, 2022 joined the Muslim fraternity at Kibuli and Old Kampala Mosques to celebrate Eid al-Fitr, a festival that celebrates the end of Ramadan in the Islam faith.
Movit Products Limited, Uganda’s leading manufacturer of personal and body care products joined the Muslims for Eid al-Fitr celebrations for the 7th year through handing the fraternity a consignment of food stuffs and material support including; Rice, Sugar, Maize Flour, Cooking Oil, Wheat Flour and Washing Soap as a show of friendship, love and care.
Speaking at the handover ceremony, Eric Karungi, the Regional Business Manager Movit Products said that, “Movit Products has had a long-standing relationship with the Muslim fraternity in Uganda –adding that the company recognizes the importance of observing Ramadhan and the value of giving and sharing with the fraternity.”
Sheikh Abdul Salaam Mutyaba, Executive Imaam Kibuli Mosque, commended the staff and management of Movit for not tiring in doing good especially during Ramadhan.
“On behalf of fellow believers, we wish to express our gratitude to you for the contribution you continue to make during Ramadhan when many need it and we are extremely delighted with your good gesture,” said Sheikh Mutyaba.
The Movit firm also shared the celebration with Muslims in other parts of the country including; Mbale, Arua and Mbarara by giving similar food stuff.
Ramadhan is the ninth month of the Muslim year, during which muslims strictly observe a 30-day fasting from dawn to sunset while seeking more guidance from Allah. The common practice during Ramadan includes a pre-dawn meal before the fast called the “suhur”, while the meal at sunset that breaks the fast is the “Iftar”.
Muslims also engage in increased prayer and charity during Ramadhan which according to the holy Quran, Allah will double fold the reward of the charity giver, as seen in Al Hadid: 18 which says; “Verily those who give alms–be they men or women, -and give Allah a beautiful loan shall be repaid after increasing it many times; and theirs shall be a generous reward.”
Eid al-Fitr is celebrated worldwide with a big feast, charity, gift exchanges and visiting of friends and family.
