Eid Mubarak

| | 29 comments


Eid Al Fitr is a day of blessings for all fasting Muslims as they are promised great rewards by almighty Allah for observing their fast.

By the end of Ramadan,Muslims express their gratitude to Allah for enabling them to fast and at the dame time granted them abundant provision during the blessed month.Eid Al Fitr,therefore,is a day of joy,acts of worship,thanksgining to Allah,britherhood,unity,and spriritual provision.

What Muslims do during Eid

On the day of Eid,there are some sunnah acts that muslims should do,including:
1.Wake up early and have breakfast before leaving for the Eid prayer ground.
2.Dress in the best clothes that a Muslim can afford,that are reasonable and modest.
3.apply perfume.
4.Offer Eid prayers in congregation in an open place.
6.Engage in takbir pryers after the Faj,or sunrise prayer,until the imam comes out fro prayers.Takbir is recommended for males,females,young and old.
7.It is also important to make sure to pay Zakat Al Fitr befor the prayer.Ideally,it should be given in advance so that the poor can enjoy their Eid
8.It is also good islamic practice to visit one another and exchange gifts.
9.Remember the true spirit of Eid is reflected in extreme generosity to the poor and the needy.So,a Muslim should be charitable as best as he or she can.
10.Wish every one the joy of Eid...etc

Wish U a Happy Eid Mubarak...

I think it is not too late to wish you a Happy Eid Mubarak! (I just learnt how to say it in English from you). I spent this beautiful holiday in the company of my family and friends. It was nice but sad because there are always those who I miss on this holiday for they passed away.

Beautiful photo. Great use of light. It was interesting to read your explanation of Eid. I am blessed to work with people from many cultures. As marketing manager for Adult Options, we serve people from more than a 100 countries who come to us to learn English. Our students have taught me much. In contrast, I also work on the playground at the elementary school. I came across an argument among some 9 year olds. Two girls from Somalia were so excited for Eid and talking about what they do-a trip to the amusement park at Mall of America in the afternoon was the highlight. We talked about how it comes twice a year. A Christian student said not fair, said she only gets ONE Christmas! A Jewish student also was in the circle of talk. She said Eid sounded like a lot more fun than Yom Kippur! It's so funny how kids see things!
