After a month of fasting and abstaining from deeds and thoughts which are against Shariah, all virtuous and pious Muslims celebrate their spiritual reawakening on the auspicious day of Eid-ul-Fitr.
Throughout the holy month of Ramadan, the essence of purification, reconciliation and charity are imbued in every way of life of Muslims.
This year, it is more significant as the modern world faces its biggest challenge so far. The fight against coronavirus has been brutal to the extent that we have lost many of our frontline fighters to the disease.
But still we hold this month dear to our hearts and continue to fight against COVID-19. Even though the spirit of celebration has become very much dampened with this outbreak, it is still heartening to feel that the people are still raring to take part in this year’s celebrations.
We have learned the teachings of joy of giving,
sharing with our loved ones and also with
those who are unprivileged in our society
Throughout the month of Ramadan we have tried to abstain ourselves from taking any food and drink in the daytime. We tried to tread on the path of Allah and His Rasul.
We tried to control our hunger and thirst, anger and greed. We have learned the teachings of joy of giving, sharing with our loved ones and also with those who are unprivileged in our society. We count our blessings and also share love with our loved ones as well as with strangers.
However, the month-long ritual of fasting has been tougher this year with coronavirus and many people have suffered from stagnation.
Furthermore, the cyclone Amphan near the end of the month has also claimed a number of lives. This has taught us how to be patient during tests of Allah and remember the creator.
Eid Mubarak to all our readers and well-wishers so that they may have an Eid full of festivities and happiness. Celebrate this blessed holiday with your loved ones and help spread joy with those around you. Have a very happy Eid.
