Few Things To Remember On Eid

Eid is just around the corner. I am sure that everyone is done with their Eid shopping and other preparations by now. It always makes me a little sad when the month of Ramadan is drawing to a close because there are so many of us who normally do not follow the teachings of Islam all through the year except in this month. In my opinion while we are all busy with the festivities of Eid, there are a few things which we should not forget.

e1The spirit of Islam should continue even after the end of the Holy month

The holy month of Ramadan gives us few very valuable lessons. Firstly, that our lives should be dedicated and centered around our religion. Secondly and most importantly there is pleasure in giving. All through Ramadan we try to help out as many people as we can but why only in Ramadan. Why not continue helping others, not just financially but in any way we can all through the year and especially on Eid. The most important thing to remember this Eid is that we must not forget to be generous. Sharing and giving is what can make this occasion more memorable and special, not just for us but also for those who do not have as much resources as many of us.

Don’t forget that we are all equal in the eyes of God

Ramadan teaches us the lesson that we are all equal in the eyes of God. All Muslims, whether they are rich or poor, young or old, live in Europe or Middle East, all of them have the same rituals during Ramadan. We must remember that all teaching of Islam basically try to teach us that we are all equal in the eyes of God. Never look down upon anyone because of their social status.

e3Making someone smile can be the biggest gift not just for the other person but also yourself

Try to make someone happy even if you have to go out of your way to do so. Making children happy in particular can be s o rewarding, that is something I know from personal experience. If you can’t do something grand, do something small like buy a big pack of sweets and distribute it among children who cross your path on Eid , especially the ones who cannot afford to buy these goodies. A smile on their face will make your day.

Eid is a wonderful time to make up with people you may have fought with or are not talking to

Forgive those who may have wronged you. If you are at fault then there is no better time to ask for forgiveness than on Eid. It will only make your day even better. You may just win a friend or a family member back this Eid only by making the first move so go ahead:)

Unfortunately, there are many of us who think that when Ramadan ends it is time to move on but it is not so. We wish our readers a very Happy Eid, spend time with your friends and families, have a lot of fun but please don’t forget those people who are less fortunate.

May Allah bless all of you and your families on this Eid and all through the year. Ameen.
