“Sebaik-baik hari di sisi Allah subhaanahu wa ta’aalaa adalah hari Nahr, dan dia adalah hari Haji Akbar.” (Ibnul Qayyim rahimahullah, Zadul Ma’ad)
Wake up early, take a bath, pick your best clothes, beautify yourself and go to the nearest field to perform ‘eid prayer together with all Muslims and your beloved family. Let’s rejoice and celebrate, this is one of a Muslim`s biggest day.
“The `eid is a chance to multiply good deeds by bringing happiness and pleasure to the hearts of other Muslims, by helping and supporting the poor and needy, and by getting involved in past times that emphasize the strong and serious Islamic character.” (IslamAwareness)
“‘Eid was named ‘Eid because it returns every year with renewed happiness.” (Ibn Al Arabi)
“For every people there is a feast and this is our feast.” [Sahih Al Bukhari: (vol. 5, no. 268).]
Taqabbalallaahu minna wa minkum. Eid Mubarak, everyone!
