A Note from a Close Friend on this Eid

Posted on November 27, 2009


Assalamu Alaikum Wa Rahmatullahi Wa Barakatuhu

Allah (S.W.T.) says to the believers in Surat Al-Ma’idah, (Verse 3), what can be translated as,
“This day I have perfected your deen for you, completed My Favor upon you, and have chosen for you Islam as your Deen.”

Islam is submission to Almighty Allah, obeying Him, worshiping none but Allah alone, and not associating anyone with Him. In other words, Muslims should make sure they avoid Shirk (associating partners with Allah).

On this blessed day, let us celebrate Eid-ul-Adha with a sense of gratitude and humility as we glorify Allah (S.W.T.) through our takbir, tahmid and through performing the ibadah

Allahhu Akbar Allahhu Akbar Allahhu Akbar Walillah hilhamd.

We ask Allah the Almighty, to bless all the muslims who are performing their Hajj peacefully and may all of them receive a Mabrur/Mabrurah Hajj and for the one who performing Qurban/Sacrifice, May Allah accept our sacrifices. Ameen

Every nation (Ummah) has an Eid, which has its objectives and purpose. Eid purifies the hearts and brings people together for a good purpose. The Eid is a blessed day, which Allah named as “Yawm Al-Haj Al-Akbar” as most of the Haj rites are on this day.

Hajj is the symbol of Tawheed (the Oneness of Allaah) from the first moment the pilgrim enters ihraam.

Jaabir ibn ‘Abd-Allaah said, describing the Hajj of the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him): “Then he srated to say the words of Tawheed, ‘“Labbayka Allaahumma labbayk, labbayka laa shareeka laka labbayk. Inna al-hamd wa’l-ni’mata laka wa’l-mulk, laa shareeka lak (Here I am, O Allaah, here I am. Here I am, You have no partner, here I am. Verily all praise and blessings are Yours, and all sovereignty, You have no partner).’”
Narrated by Muslim.

We ask Allâh, may He be exalted, to increase our iman, taqwa and patience in undergoing this difficult and trial period, to ease our worries, for He is the All-Hearing Who answers prayers, He is the Ever-Living, Eternal. Ameen

The teachings of the Qur’an and the Sunnah stress moral excellence, good manners and safeguarding society’s and individuals’ rights. People should be kind and obedient to their parents, keep in touch with their relatives, greet people and keep away from harming or annoying others. The Islamic teachings stress the spreading of love and harmony and warn against cheating, envy and backbiting. We urged Muslims to have good manners while dealing with people.

We ask Allâh, the Mighty and Majestic, to bless us all in what we have heard, and that He makes us from the people of the Qur’ân, those who are His special and favored people, and that He increases us in knowledge and that He reminds us of what we forget. Ameen-ameen- ameen yarabbal ‘alameen

We pray for the many people who are suffering around the world. We encourage every Muslim to pray for and to make great efforts to bring peace and justice as well as relief from suffering for all of humanity. We should also make dua for the Muslims who are struggling in Allah’s cause, our brothers/sisters who are behind bars and the less fortunate who are struggling with poverty around the world and those who have lost there job – may Allah give them a better rizq. Ameen

We make du’aa that Allah accept all our efforts and grant us Ikhlaas.

Allaahu akbar, Allaahu akbar, Allaahu akbar, laa ilaaha ill-Allaah,
Allaahu akbar, Allaahu akbar, Allaahu akbar, wa Lillaahi’l-hamd
(Allaah is Most Great, Allaah is Most Great, Allaah is Most Great,
there is no god except Allaah, Allaah is Most Great, Allaah is Most
Great , Allaah is Most Great, and all praise be to Allaah).

Taqabal Allah Minna Wa Minkum, Saleh Al-A’maal. Ameen.

Wassalamualaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh
