Eid al-Fitr – Eid Mubarak!


Salam! Well everyone, the time has come. After a month dedicated to fasting, reciting the Quran, and prayer, Eid al-Fitr is here*. This is the day we celebrate the end of Ramadan.  This is the day we should visit our families and friends, give gifts to your children. and most importantly, remember Allah throughout this day. Allah can take a person’s life away at anytime and you should be thankful that you were able to fast through Ramadan another year. That being said, just like any other day, we all make mistakes and that includes on Eid. I want to share with you guys (from I Love Allaah) some of the most common mistakes people make on Eid that should not be done. I also want to share with you guys the etiquette of Eid as well. Please hit the “Read More” link below.


The common mistakes Muslims make on Eid are:

1 – The belief of some that it is prescribed to spend the night of Eid in worship.

2 – Visiting graves on the two Eid days.

3 – Forsaking the jamaa’ah and sleeping late and missing the prayer.

4 – Women mixing with men in the prayer place, the streets and elsewhere, and crowding together with men in those places.

5 – Some women going out wearing perfume and makeup, and without veils.

6 – Listening to singing and haraam things.

Detailed information about each mistake can be found here: I Love Allaah – Common Mistakes made by Muslims on Eid!

The Sunnahs that the Muslim should observe on the day of Eid are as follows:

1 – Doing ghusl before going out to the prayer.

 

2 – Eating before going out to pray on Eid al-Fitr and after the prayer on Eid al-Adha.

 

3 – Takbeer on the day of Eid.

 

4 – Offering congratulations

 

5 – Adorning oneself on the occasion of Eid.

I pray that we all get to live to fast Ramadan next year inshaAllah. Amen. Make sure you pray the Eid prayer and I wish all of us a happy Eid!

*Note: Just because Ramadan is over, doesn’t mean we can stop praying and reciting the Quran. Everyone should be praying to Allah and reciting the Quran on a daily basis so please, try to continue doing so throughout your life.
