Assalamu alaykum dear brothers and sisters,
Allahu akbar Allahu akbar Allahu akbar, la illaha illallah, Allahu akbar Allahu akbar wa lilllahil hamd.
We ask Allah to bless us during these special days and to accept our good deeds.
Rasulullah says about these days:”They are days of eating and drinking and remembrance of Allah.” Therefore one should enjoy the halal blessings of Allah during these days and increase their remembrance of Allah. Yes, the halal is to be enjoyed and we are rewarded for this enjoyment. This is a meaning that is sometimes forgotten. But after we enjoy these blessings we need to thank Allah for them. The slaughtering on eid of animals and feeding on what is a gift from Allah demands our gratitude.
So we should remember Allah, praise Him and seek His forgiveness during these moments.
We should also make dua for the Muslims who are struggling in Allah’s cause, our brothers who are behind bars and the less fortunate who are struggling with poverty around the world.
Eid mubarak to all of you.
