Qatar Central Bank Honours Eid Al Fitr Traditions By Launching Eidiah ATM

As Ramadan will conclude within some days there’s the joy of Eid Al Fitr approaching in the air. And for those who aren’t aware, the Islamic traditions surrounding this festival involve a practice called ‘Eidiah’. The sweet childhood memory of receiving money from the elders of the house refreshes when we hear the term. And Qatar has taken this practice a step further by establishing an Eidiah ATM in the region.

Eidiah ATM Is Available Across Multiple Locations In Qatar

It’s the season of gifting and we can see people rushing to the malls and souks for gift shopping. But when it comes to Eidi or Eidiah, the elders in the house prefer to hand out cash to the younger ones. So to honour the traditions & culture of Eid Al Fitr, visit these ATMs curated by Qatar Central Bank, specifically for this festive season across Qatar.

So how does this service work? Customers can use this ATM facility to withdraw cash in amounts of QR5, QR10, QR50, and QR100.

A number of locations have ATMs set up on specific dates. Starting from April 13 at the Mall of Qatar, April 15 at Place Vendome Mall, April 17 at Al Wakrah Old Souq, and finally April 18 at Al Mirqab Mall. These are the allotted locations where the ATM service will be available during Eid Al Fitr.

Astronomers at Qatar Calendar House confirmed on Sunday that Eid Al-Fitr is expected to fall in Qatar on April 21.

The Moon Sighting Committee of the Ministry of Endowments (Awqaf) has not yet officially announced its conclusion regarding the moon sighting.

While we await for the final date to be announced, why not take a look at the events happening across the region for the last few days of Ramadan? From shopping fairs to community iftars, Qatar is celebrating Ramadan with all extravagance. There are certain workshops happening across the country that are teaching you the culture and heritage of Qatar. You can immerse in the festive splendour while it lasts in Qatar. So where are you going? While you plan, don’t forget to visit the Eidiah ATM.
