Eid Greetings to all Muslims around the World

Alhamdolillah, the month of Ramadan, the month of countless blessings, has come to an end with the sighting of the crescent of month of  Shawwal 1442 AH.  Those who adhered to obligations of the month of Ramadan, kept all fasts, recited the Qur'an and gave away charities, In Sha Allah, they will be rewarded of their self sacrifices. 

The editor Islam: My Ultimate Decision wishes a very happy Eid to all Muslims around the world, specially its readers and followers. May this day brings happiness to all Muslims around the world and that wherever Muslims are being repressed like in Palestine by Israel, Kashmir in India, Afghanistan by NATO forces and the ongoing conflict between Yemen and Saudi Arabia. Also the sufferings in Syria dn Iraq may also come to an end so that peace prevails all over the Muslim world.

The dawn of 13th May brings glad tidings for all believers to celebrate Eid ul Fitr " عيد الفطر ". The day dawned with the special Eid prayer congregations all over the Muslim world, which is followed by embracing each other to greet the blessings of the day - although due to covid-19 embracing was very limited or done away with.  On this day, sweet dishes are prepared, for which this Eid is also known as the Sweet Eid. Friends and relatives visit each other houses and greet the families while the children are given away Eid money, a ritual of specially liking for the children. Families thereafter move out to recreational parks where children take rides and enjoy the day. Special meals are prepared to celebrate the day with families and relatives.

The five most favoured sunnah of the Prophet of Allah include:
  • Recite Takbir
  • Taking Ghusl / full bath
  • Eat something, preferably a few dates as the Prophet of Allah used to
  • Attend the Eid prayers and greet as many Muslims as possible after the Eid Prayers by  embracing known or even unknown Muslims
  • Take a different route home
One of the hallmark of the Eid ul Fitr is giving away charities, called Fitr or Fitrana,  before the special Eid prayers to the poor and needy. This ensures participation of the poor in the Eid day celebrations. Many believers give away cooked food to the poor. Believers also visit grave yards to pray for the forgiveness of their near and dear ones buried there.

For reverts who will be celebrating their first Eid, this day will be great day for them for celebrating their first Eid  ritual. However, this day may not be the same as the clouds of Corona Virus loom all over the world and many festivities may have either done away with or curtailed.

May next year we meet Eid in good atmosphere with Covid19 In Sha Allah gone and all in fighting in Muslim countries God Willing ended.

Reading the Qur'ān should be a daily obligation of a Muslim - Reading it with translation will make it meaningful. But reading its Exegesis / Tafsir will make you understand it fully.
