Every year, during the Eid-ul-Fitr period (Muslim festive period), crowds of eager patrons gather at the Al Ansaar premises to experience the pleasures of the Eid Meelan. The mini trade fair features a variety of stalls to cater for just about all of your Eid requirements. Stalls range from the sale of sweetmeats, cakes, biscuits, scarves, jewellery, clothing and household items etc. The Eid Meelan has been in existence for over 10 years and is an event that the people of Durban look forward to. It was created as a source of entertainment and shopping in the Ramadan period for patrons to enjoy the Islamic ambiance and feel spiritually uplifted. It brings together the community and also encourages us to be more giving and at peace with our fellow beings. As usual with all fundraising activities, proceeds from the Eid Meelan are injected to the various activities of the organisation.
