The Best Part of Eid
So the second night of Eid has started, what has been your favourite moment of Eid al Adha so far?
Mine has definitely been Eid Salaah this morning at Darus Salaam Masjid | House of Peace, I managed to arrange to meet a few friends and we prayed Eid salaah side by side, alhamdulillah. It was the first time praying the Eid Salaah for two of them, so I had a blessed opportunity to re experience the amazing feelings and joy of praying in congregation on Eid day for the first time, and I was priviledged enough to share in this moment in 2 other sisters lives!
Eid Salaah really makes Eid day for me, you feel like an ummah, a community, sisters you don’t know come up to you and shake your hand and hug you and wish you Eid Mubarak, the recitation during salaah and the khutbah brings tears to my eyes. This is what I feel Eid should be about.
The rest of the day sitting in houses is a bit meh! compared to that experience in one of the houses of Allah.
so jazakallahkhayr to Rabiya, Ranga and Yasmin for joining me in Eid salaah, I hope we can repeat this experience in years to come, and convince other sisters to take a break from the kitchen and join us! you really made my Eid day special ♥
Allahu akbar Allahu akbar, wa la ilaha ilAllahu, wa Allahu akbar Allahu akbar wa ila il hamd.
