ISLAMABAD: The prolonged pleasant weather patterns in most parts of the country during the month of April continue to provide relief to the faithful in the month of Ramazan, which would continue in the month of May too according to the weather experts.
Most of the people in the federal capital, like other parts, have unpacked the warm clothes due to the unexpected rains and cloudy weather at the time when usually the hot weather is anticipated. The faithful are also enjoying frequent rains and cloudy weather conditions at the time when they are fasting and spending most of their time in praying.
‘It looks like the Spring season has been prolonged this year due to which the weather is still little bit cold especially from evening till night. We have unpacked the warm clothes to save ourselves and children from the seasonal diseases at the time when the weather was changingâ€ , Sumaira Naeem, a house wife who lives at F-6/1 said. She said, â€œThe pleasant weather always makes it easier for us to keep fast and perform the other day-to-day responsibilities alongside. Such weather is not less than a blessing during the month of fasting.”
Illyas Khan, a resident of G-8/1 said, â€œAlthough we are restricted to homes for most of the time due to the COVID-19 health risks but still move to nearby park to have Iftar and walk, taking advantage of the pleasant weather.â€ â€œIt is unhealthy if we stay all the time at home and avoid walk after having Iftar so we all the family members, wearing masks and following all necessary precautions, visit the nearest park at night hours when it is less crowdedâ€ , he added.
