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!
