Happy Eid-ul-Fitr, Eid Mubarak 2020 Wishes, Greetings, Whatsapp Stickers: With everyone at home it’s difficult to celebrate festivals with family and friends. The situation is the same this Eid. The term Eid-ul-Fitr means “festival of breaking the fast” after keeping fast for the whole of the holy month of Ramzan. Eid-ul-Fitr marks the end of the holy month of Ramzan. Eid-ul-Fitr will be celebrated on May 25 as the moon wasn’t visible on Saturday. Delhi’s Jama Masjid Shahi Imam, Syed Ahmed Bukhari requested everyone to be at home and celebrate the festival and maintain social distancing. “We should stay away from shaking hands and hugging. We should follow government’s guidelines,” Bukhari said.
Apps such as WhatsApp, Facebook, Zoom and others have helped everyone stay connected amid the lockdown and keep in touch with loved ones, friends and family. To send Eid-ul-Fitr wishes and greetings to loved ones one can either send text messages or create special stickers and send them across. WhatsApp is used by millions of people in the country and sending a messaging on the platform is the best way to connect with everyone, even friends you haven’t connected to for a long time.
WhatsApp already allows users to send stickers and also create them and share them with family and friends. Here’s a step-by-step guide on how you can create a special Eid-ul-Fitr sticker and send wishes and greetings to your contacts. Before getting into the steps to create stickers, you must know that WhatsApp has extended group video call participants from four to eight making it easy for users to connect to one another. So if sending messages is not your thing you can always group voice or video call.
