It is festival of joy and bright light which decorates aur life whith happiness. This day is used to spread Harmony and Duahs among our relatives, friends and all those who emigrated from Doonya. Exchange of gifts among young ones and meeting sick is done during Eid. In this month of celebration, we forget those who are lesser privileged in the society and have nothing to celebrate. This day is just like another ordinary day for them. Bare roadside, hospitalised people are the lonely ones who can’t even meet their loved-ones. Let us pray and hope for them that a day will come when those poor people welcome this festival with warmth and blessings.

O Allah! As we eat dishes, wear new clothes, get gifts from elders, let us attribute the special things to those who can’t afford. Let us implant the message the message of giving, caring and sharing. Because happiness doesn’t result from what we get, but from what we give. Let us teach everyone the condition of the millions of pople and children that are in war affected areas like Afghanistan, Kashmir, Iraq, Phillipines and the underprivileged areas of Asia, Africa and America who can’t even afford their necessities.

This is the day for entreating and memorializing those unfortunate people who became the victims of the naturally occuring disasters like drought, famine, earthquakes like in Kathmandu, Kashmir and Pakistan as well. They do need our blessings and prayers as we cannot deprive ourselves from the suffering they have gone through. This major damage can’t be disregarded saying it doen’t fascinate or affect us. It would be an injustice to humanity if we say this. As the Holy Quran says in 8th verse of Surah Al Ma’idah:

O Devotee! Be true to the Commandments of Allah, bearing witness to justice and don’t get feared of people who incite you for not doing justice

Donating money, clothes or anything to charity doesn’t make so much of difference but actually helping the one in need changes the perception. When we help others, there comes a special feeling of belonging to the one whom we helped. Our personal values teaches us to be kind, helpful and compassionate. There is no greater happiness than the smile and happiness of the one whom we endorsed. That is what decides our virtue of life.

From the moment, when the blessings of Allah strikes over a human being then he or she become acquainted of quality and intendment. Almighty Allah is the creator of all. All the emotions are only applicable before Allah. So modesty in front of the most praised creator of this earth is itself an honour and pride for human being. Almighty Allah is also considered as a vital force which keeps a human being aware from the realities of life.

The whole month of Eid-Ul-Fitr comprises of fasts and prayers on daily basis. With this muslims also read Kuran, feed poor hungry people and donate money to needy. Then a day comes when the new full moon of Eid-Ul-Fitr is sighted and fast comes to an end. This moon is considered to be divine and sacred for the muslim communities. All the communities join together to celebrate this holy festival. Sweets, gifts and different kinds of greetings are exchanged between the loved ones. This festival of affection and cordiality spreads the message of maintaining brotherhood and peace among all communities. Emotions like jealousy, anxiety and hatred are said goodbye with this. Eid-ul-Fitr is said to be the rejuvenation of all the religions across the country by spreading happiness, love and devotion. As peace and love makes this world a better place to live in.
