Ins-sha-allah We will observe Eid-Ul-Fitr on 7th of July, 2016. On the eve of this graceful occasion, we should thank Allah azwazzal for facilitating us to fast for 1 whole month. We should also pray to Allah to grant us the sacred spirit of Ramadan so that we can keep doing good works for the rest of the year.
The Eid is a gift from our Lord for the endeavours we have made during this sacred month. So we must spend this gleeful moment in Worshiping. That means we should enjoy in the way showed to us by Prophet Muhammad(sm).
Prophet Muhammad(PBUH) has maintained few things while observing Eid-ul-Fitr. I am bringing in few
1. Take a full bath early in the morning.
2. Offer Eid prayers preferably in Eidgah or else in the Mosque.
3. Adorn yourself in the best possible clothes you have and boys use perfume.
4. Recite Takbeer on the way to Eidgah till Imam arrives at Mimbar.
Allaahu akbar, Allaahu akbar, laa ilaaha ill-Allaah, wa Allaahu akbar, Allaah akbar, wa Lillaah il-hamd
(Allaah is Most Great, Allaah is most Great, there is no god but Allaah, Allaah is Most great, Allaah is most great, and to Allaah be praise).
5. Take a walk to the Eidgah instead of taking a ride.
6. Use one route while coming and use another route while returning from Eidgah.
7. Eat some dates or sweet dishes before leaving home for Eid Solah.
8. Exchange good wishes with each other. The preferable one can be
“taqaballahu wa minna wa min kum”
May Allaah accept (good deeds) from us and from you”
Text this dua while exchanging Eid greetings.
9. Rasulullah(sm) used to fast 6 extra days in the month Shawal. He said that whoever fasts throughout the Ramadan & the 6 days in Shawal, Allah will grant him the reward for fasting a whole year.
What we should not do which we commonly do:
1. Forget all the obligatory Prayers while celebrating.
2. Go on hangouts with the opposite gender who is not Mahram to us.
3. Listen to the haram music.
4. It’s haram to fast on Eid day.
Allah knows best !
May Allah accept our good deeds & grant us good health till the next Ramadan.
