Approaching towards the end of the blessed month of Ramadan, the final day of rewards for the pious Muslims has come, we have reached to the final day of Ramadan where with the appearing of a moon, there will be the declaration for the celebration of Eid- Al-Fitr!
Through our series of Ramadan this month we made you aware of the importance of Ramadan, the myths which one can have regarding the fasting in the pious month, the behavior one can acquire towards their non-Muslims, and the must behaviour which a Muslim has to work towards to achieve are the things which were important to know, but what was left amongst them was to show the story of the practicing Muslim, who has contributed in this whole month in the best possible way for himself and for others.
Many think that the embarking of the last day of Ramadan must be a very happy and a day full of excitement but to that, a Muslim’s reply would be totally opposite. Something which you might have not even thought about. As a Muslim, for me, it is a sad moment when I see the month of utmost grace and continuous ushering of blessings coming to an end. This month where every good deed was multiplied to thousand times, that month in which love, affection, discarding of the bad deeds, and keeping a good behavior, making continuous charity and keeping the kinship was the sole purpose beyond the purpose of earning money and leading a luxurious life.
Every year Ramadan comes to teach us the discipline and the exact way of life, a life which is for others, a life which has a disciplined schedule, this whole month of practicing good will be passed by just one night and by the sighting of the moon for Eid- Al- Fitr. To that is the beauty of Islam, that it aims to transform a human and his life through the way of changing his lifestyle which benefits him and others around him, thus the ones who achieve this month by practicing even 50% of how it is supposed to be practiced, the transformation will speak louder than words.
What happens when a student writes his exam and gets the result with an A grade with distinction? The student deserves the party, the feast of his lifetime, that is the same impact what Eid-al-Fitr has in a Muslims life. Eid is the day for which in Quran the Almighty quotes by saying “after your fulfillment of the rituals prescribed to you, here is your day of rewards, where I am standing as your host, and have given you the privilege to demand whatever you seek and desire for, for that will be granted.” Thus, this day embarks the commencement of the months of practising good exactly, the way it was in the month of Ramadan, except fasting which is not obligatory.
Falling on the first day of the month of Shawwal. Eid is the date for the start of any lunar Hijri month varies based on the observation of new moon by local religious authorities, so the exact day of celebration varies by locality. However, in most countries, it is generally celebrated on the same day as Saudi Arabia. Muslims believe that they are commanded by Allah, as mentioned in the Quran, to continue their fast until the last day of Ramadan and pay the Zakat and Fitra before offering the Eid Prayers.
Celebrating it with their friends and family, the common ritual to follow this day is to go and wish each and every friend of yours and giving them invites to come to have a feast of joy. So, plan out this Eid to how to celebrate it with your friends.
