Eid Mubarak! Eid Sa’eed! Happy Eid!


So, is everybody ready and excited for Eid? Is everyone pleased with their accomplishments of the past month? May Allah accept our efforts, no matter how much or how little we did, and may He accept our du’aas, ameen. May Allah bless us with life for many more Ramadaans, ameen!

I am sad to see Ramadaan go. I wouldn’t have minded just one more day, to make it a 30 day Ramadaan. I am, in fact, a little displeased that so many ‘ulema have decided that tomorrow is Eid. However, the dices have been tossed, and tomorrow it is. It’s always bittersweet to see this final day end, without taraweeh and instead with intense cleaning for the Eid day to come. This time, for the first time in a long time, we have gifts for one another.

It’s not that we usually can’t afford or don’t think of or don’t believe in exchanging gifts on Eid. It’s just that usually we have no idea what to give each other in our family, so we give each other cash–which is quite a circular gift, when you think about it. This year, there were very definite ideas about what so and so would like, what so and so would want, what so and so has been eyeing all year long. It made it so easy and such a no-brainer to go shopping, that Eid kind of feels like the Eid of my childhood.

The excitement of wrapping up gifts, and knowing how the recipient will be so happy or excited with the gifts makes it just a little bit easier to let go of Ramadhan. It’s one phase of the year flowing effortlessly into another, and the changing of the tides is something I almost welcome. I am, frankly, exhausted (but happily so) from this Ramadhan. The days were long and hot and hectic. InshaAllah, may next year be even better. If I learned anything from this Ramadhan, it’s that I need to rest up before the next one!

The devil is now free, so let’s all be on the lookout for him and his evil whispers. May Allah bless us for the next year with more of the happiness and bounties that we’ve seen this Ramadhan, and may He bless us with the ability to be appropriately thankful to Him for His Endless Mercies, ameen.

    Joud: I really knew the shayateen had been freed when I saw the antics of some motorbikers on the way back from iftar last night in south London! I tweeted that anyone who wanted to cripple themselves should watch this video rather than bashing their Kawasakis against my little Daewoo (none of them actually did, but I thought they would).

  7. Ameen to all your duas sis,
    Hope you have a very happy eid 😀

    Eid Mubarak! I feel the same way about Ramadan, I wish it was longer! We wait for it all year, then *poof* it’s over before you know it. Alhamdulilah we were able to fast this Ramadan, and may Allah allow us to fast in the coming Ramadans as well.
