Eid Mubarak!



Let us all be like a pearl, 
Precious and rare,
Not found everywhere...

Today is Eid ul Fitr. After a whole month of fasting, this festival has arrived to mark a new beginning. My day started with special Eid prayers at mosque and then we came home to receive our guests. A delightful get-together with family and friends where we shared our food and gifts and expressed our affection, that helped us to spread some joy and happiness.

Eid ul Fitr ('Eid' means Festivity and 'Fitr' means Breaking fast), is a day of feasting but it is not just about food. It is the time for charity, forgiveness and self-realization. Also giving thanks to Allah for all the good tidings and strength He gave us.

You know, when we speak to Allah, we don’t have to be embarrassed to tell Him anything. The most beautiful thing is that He knows what we are about to tell Him and yet, He still listens to us. May Allah has accepted all our prayers and good deeds throughout the month and bless us with healthy, happy and prosperous life. Aameen!

  3. Hello Meera! Eid ul Fitr sounds like an amazing festival. I would love to know more about it. Why do you fast for a month? And how is that possible?

    1. Hi Vashti! Eid ul Fitr means "Festival of Breaking of the Fast". We fast for a month (from dawn to dusk) during the Islamic month Ramzan every year. I've been observing fast during the month of Ramzan since my childhood. This fasting teaches us self control and also makes us understand the poor better. So we celebrate the Eid ul Fitr with lots of charity for poor and thanking Allah for giving us everything to share and love. :)
