Not too long ago, a video of a group of neighbours eating outside of their houses on the road went viral on social media. What’s funny about it is that it serves a literal meaning of “eating out”.

The video was uploaded by Eyna Mansor (@eynamansor) on her social media accounts and it garnered a lot of attention from the public.

The owner of the video shared that the group of neighbours at Blok 6, Felda Bukit Kuantan had their iftar (breaking fast) on 1 April. In the spirit of togetherness, they laid out mats outside their homes, on a stretch of a dead-end road and had their iftar picnic-style.

Before you jump to conclusions, Eyna explained that although not everyone had the chance to join them, the people at the block already planned this beforehand and everyone gave their approval to use the road in front of their houses.

In addition, the road is a dead end, so they wouldn’t have to worry about obstructing incoming cars or other vehicles.

Other neighbours also uploaded their moments during the iftar on their social media.

Some netizens find it bizarre

In the comment section of the Twitter thread, some netizens do not agree with this method of breaking fast together with neighbours.

Some of them pointed out road safety issues, mosquitoes and the inappropriateness of being outside at dusktime.

Others slam those who criticized them

However, a lot of people defended Eyna’s situation. They slammed those who criticized her saying that this kinda thing is totally normal in village areas.

They claimed that those who commented must be city folks that do not know the meaning of camaraderie or brotherhood.

Apart from it being fun, the act actually shows that they’re a tight-knit community.

In the spirit of Ramadan, the act of togetherness among families, friends, and communities should be celebrated. Eating together during iftar is one of the best ways to ignite this unity.

It doesn’t matter where you have your iftar, you just have to ensure it’s safe and doesn’t affect anyone badly.
