‘Id al-Fitr: ِHappiness and Acceptance


Qays bin Sa’d said:

“I see everything that we used to do during the era of Allah’s Messenger (صلى الله عليه و سلم) except for one thing: they used to play and celebrate in front of him on the day of ‘Id al-Fitr.”

This was reported by Ibn Majah (1303), and declared authentic by Muqbil al-Wadi’i in ‘al-Jami’ as-Sahih’ (2/451) through one of its three chains.

It’s mentioned in ‘Lisan al-‘Arab’ (3/319) that Ibn al-A’rabi said:

‘Id is called ‘Id because it returns (ya’ud) every year with renewed happiness.”

Ibn ‘Abidin said in his ‘Hashiyah’ (2/165):

‘Id was given this name because Allah brings back His customary Kindness to His worshipers that they would experience everyday. For example, they can now eat after they were fasting, they receive the Sadaqat al-Fitr…etc. Also, because the custom on this day is happiness and joy, and energy and rejoicing.”

Ibn Hajar mentioned in ‘Fath al-Bari’ (2/446) that the practice of the Companions on this day was to say:

تقبل الله منا و منك

Taqabbal Allah minna wa mink

‘May Allah accept from us and you’

    Islam is the religion of peace and The word “Islam” itself means “Submission to Allah.” The religion of Islam is not named after a person as in the case of “Christianity” which was named after Jesus Christ, “Buddhism” after Gutama Buddha , “Marxism” after Karl Marx, and “Confucianism” after Confucius.
    Similarly, Islam is not named after a tribe like “Judaism” after the tribe of Judah and “Hinduism” after the Hindus. The Arabic word “Islam” means the submission or surrender of one’s will to the will of the only true god worthy of worship, “Allah” (known as God “the Father” in Christianity).
    And Mosks are the place where we do our prayers
    “Whoever builds a Masjid, seeking Allah’s pleasure; Allah will build for him a similar place in Paradise.” (Al-Bukhari)
    “Do you know who will go first on the Day of Resurrection to the shade of Allah? Those who when given what is right accept it, when asked for something give freely and who judge in favour of others as they do for themselves.” (Tirmidhi)

    All this can be spread through the learning of Quran so learn Quran online and join http://www.learningquranonline.com learn quran online, learn quran, learning quran online

    Depart Oh Crescent,
    And appear when the time will smile
    And when the flames of tribulations will die out

    Come to us
    When the evening will be covered with our smiles
    and when the snow on our paths will melt

    Come to us with fragrance
    With Glory and Clear Victory
    Come to us with a full healing for Muslims

    This is the Happy Eid
    And other than that for us is not an Eid

    Depart oh Crescent
    Till You see this Ummah’s flags

    Waving high with pride
    For there is Eid in there
