EID is a time of celebration; be it Eid-ul-Fitr or Eid-ul-Adha, Muslims all over the world celebrate the two religious festivals with full zeal. Wearing the best clothes, triple-hugging random people at the mosque, arranging grand family reunions, giving gifts and Eidi to all your loved ones and thanking Allah for his innumerous blessings are just a few golden moments that make Eid ever so special to us.
Months before Eid, you can see life at its full swing at the local markets; women bargaining, vendors arguing, girls drooling over bangles of the brightest shades, and kids tugging onto their moms’ sleeve begging to take them back home. It doesn’t matter if the people are fasting or the weather is harsh, the markets remain packed with happy shoppers throughout the Eid season.
As soon as the last week of Ramadan hits, our hearts are filled deep grief, for the most sacred month of the year is going to come to an end. But soon, a tingling sense of excitement quickly makes its way into our hearts as this blessed season ends with a colorful merriment in the form of Eid-ul-Fitr.
One of the most blissful days in the Islamic lunar calendar, Eid-ul-Fitr is a day that marks the end of the holy month of Ramadan, that is the 9th month of the Islamic calendar in which Muslims around the world fast during daylight hours while refraining from all kinds of sins. Eid-ul-Fitr is celebrated on the first day of Shawwal, the 10th month of the Islamic calendar. By tradition, the observance begins with the sighting of the moon of Shawwal. This day has zero connections with any kind of historical event. Its significance is completely spiritual as it a day when Muslims show their gratitude towards Allah for giving them the strength and emaan to observe fast and offer prayers throughout the month of Ramadan.
To mark the beginning of Eid in accordance with Sunnah, Muslims all around the world wake up early to pray Salat ul-Fajr (pre-dawn prayer). And after brushing their teeth, taking a bath and wearing perfume, they have breakfast before heading off to perform special congregational prayers known as Salat al-Eid. They recite the takbir on the way to the prayer ground and give special charitable contributions known as Zakat al-Fitr.
Eid-ul-Adha or Al-Eid Al-Kabir is known all over the world as the Major Feast. This is basically celebrated by the Muslims just 2 months and 10 days after Eid-ul-Fitr, that is the Minor Feast. While the word "Eid" means "a recurring festival", the name of Eid al-Adha means "the Feast of Sacrifice" which is actually celebrated on the 10th day of the last month of the Islamic calendar, Dhul-Hijjah.
Eid-ul-Adha marks the conclusion of Hajj Pilgrimage and indicates the commencement of the ritual of Qurbani. The main theme behind this celebration is to remind ourselves of Prophet Ibrahim's (AS) Sunnah; to honor his trials and triumphs, remember his great intentions of sacrifice, and his blind trust on Allah. So, in honor of the sacrifice made by Prophet Ibrahim (AS) and his great son, Muslims sacrifice an animal (a goat, cow, lamb, or camel) on Eid-ul-Adha and distribute its meat among the poor, neighbors, family and friends. The act of sacrifice develops a habit of donating and sharing among the Muslims. It signifies our willingness to give up on anything and everything that is dear to our hearts, for the sake of Allah.
The 1st of Ramadan is expected to be on the 15th of May 2018. So that means Eid-ul-Fitr might fall on the 15th or 16th of June 2018. Not very far, is it!?
