To all the readers of From The Pulpit … I would like to wish you Eid Mubarak. Eid-ul-Fitr is being celebrated across Pakistan and in some parts of the world today.
Eid is a day of joy and happiness and feasting after the month of fasts (Ramadan). It is also however, a day on which one must remember the less fortunate around them and take care to make this day as joyous for them as it is for us.
For our family, Eid is rather subdued due to a death in the extended family on Saturday evening. Thus, the festivities are curtailed and toned down in support of our relatives’ mourning.
As the month of Ramadan comes to a close it is important to make sure that we carry on the momentum of Taqwa we acheived during Ramadan and keep our prayers and other deeds continued (more on this subject soon Insha’Allah).
To end I would like to greet all with the greeting of the Prophet (PBUH) to his companions on Eid:
Taqabba’Allahu Minna Wa Mikum (May Allah accept our deeds and yours)
