Last Ramadan, actor Datuk Fizz Fairuz was bummed as he couldn’t go to the mosque to perform Tarawih prayers due to the movement control order.
This year, since the government allowed for Ramadan bazaar to operate (in certain states) and Muslims could attend prayers at the the mosque, Fizz was happy to return to the mosque as well.
At the start of Ramadan, he posted on Instagram a video of men at the mosques practising social distancing while performing the evening prayer.
The caption read: “Terawih, second day of Ramadan. Wishing we are eased of all our burdens this Ramadan.”
Subsequently, Fizz posted a photo of himself at the mosque on the 11th day of Ramadan.
However, at this later part of Ramadan with the Covid-19 cases skyrocketing and some mosques are forced to close, he questioned in another post why a mosque is the first place to close when cases increase at an area. He wrote in his caption: "Just asking".
Besides acting, Fizz is also an active businessman. As seen on his social media, he's always promoting some business venture or other.
The 41-year-old family man – who is dad to three girls – also shared a buka puasa video he had at a restaurant with close family members.
Although many restrictions have been eased for Ramadan this year, balik kampung is still out of the question during Hari Raya.
The Raub-born actor is saddened he would have to miss another year of seeing his mum, and siblings back at the kampung, during the festive season.
He previously told StarLifestyle that one of the things he loves about Ramadan is breaking fast with his family at his kampung, visiting his siblings’ home and breaking fast with their families.
When it was announced that no interstate travel would be allowed during Hari Raya, Fizz sarcastically wrote on social media: “Hmmm... Do we have to redha (accept) again? Covid-19 clusters are able to travel everywhere but not the normal citizens.”
Fizz can currently be seen starring alongside Emma Maembong and Alvin Chong in the 30-episode RTM drama Aku Pilih Bahagia.
He plays Aidan who decides to let go of his wife after being pressured by his family for being childless. But Aidan later realises his decision may not be all that wise.
