Sumaiyya Fatmi Thursday, April 20, 2023

When the crescent moon shows up again, while the mosques are tightly packed, and the people are filled with emotions, it’s time we bid Ramadan and its spiritual atmosphere good bye, Muslims are sad but also excited to celebrate their efforts with a holiday.

On the blessed day, very well known as the festival of Muslims ‘Eid Al-fitr’, Muslims wake up early, shower and dress up to look their best and put on their favorite perfumes, then assemble together in the mosques reciting the takbeer to perform the communal prayers.

The day is filled with excitement and care for one another, Eid is a celebration where we have been taught to leave no one feeling left out. Prophet Muhammad PBUH practiced going for the Eid prayer from either paths and then returning from another, to make sure all the orphans in the area are greeted and involved in the joyous celebration and this remains the practice of Muslims even today.

Sweets and food are distributed among the poorer sections of the society. It is compulsory upon each Muslim to give in charity before the Eid prayers, this charity is called ‘Zakat al-fitr’.

Eid is celebrated by Muslims in every corner of the world and cultural sweets and their best food items are prepared, whether it be donuts, gulab jamun or kunafeh, it’s all prepared with loads of love and excitement. Relatives visit and families come together, friends reunite and gifts are exchanged between all. Children receive Eidi (Eid gifts) from their elders.

In today’s date we are just as connected to the people across seas as we are to our neighbors, people in every corner of the world put up stories (on social media) wishing the rest of the community and sharing their joy! It’s Just BEAUTIFUL how the festival is celebrated in various cultures, by people dressed differently yet enjoying a common spirit!
