Wishing all of you a blessed and joyful Eid Mubarak!
TaqabbalAllahu minna wa minkum saleh el Amal. Ameen. Rabbana taqabbal minna salatana wa siayama wa qiyamana.
As always it is depressing to see Ramadan go, because it makes you wonder if your deeds have been accepted or not or if you were among those who Allah subhanna wa ta’ala saved from the fire or those who were cursed because Ramadaan came and they did not seek forgiveness from Allah.
Although everyone has been saying this Ramadaan had been declared a day late and therefore we’re just completing 29 days instead of 30. I fully expected to pray Taraweeh when I was at the Masjid, not to mention I haven’t even gotten my henna done. But inshaAllah khayr, there is always tomorrow.
I’d like to remind everyone that everyone, including Women and Children are recommended to go to the Eid Musalla/Masjid for Eid Prayers. Scholars the likes of Ibn Taymiyyah rahimulla consider it to be fardh, but wa Allahu alam.
According to a report narrated by al-Tirmidhi: The Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) used to bring out the virgins, adolescent girls, women in seclusion and menstruating women on the two Eids, but the menstruating women were to keep away from the prayer place and witness the gathering of the Muslims. One of them said, “O Messenger of Allaah, what if she does not have a jilbaab?” He said, “Then let her sister lend her one of her jilbaabs.” (Agreed upon).
I’m also linking an article regarding all the bid’ah [innovations] and mistakes people tend to do on Eid which have no basis in the Qurán and Sunnah.
