Eid Mubarak! May your Eid be full of the joy of remembrance!
Ramadan was a window, opening us up to awareness of our reality, and to thereby feel the incredible presence of our Sustainer. May Eid be a climax of this awareness in joy, inshallah!
Let us intend in this Eid to remember the Merciful Giver of blessings, from air to water, to food to friendship, as we celebrate! Let us praise and glorify the One who sustains our weak existence, which became clearer to us during Ramadan! Let us be soaked in the beauty of gratitude to our Maker. Let us feel the special compliment to each of us, present in our every moment: our existence is a gift! It is a specially intended result by our Maker; each of us are unique guests of the Generous Host!
Each of us are intentional guests sustained each moment? Yes! That is billions and billions of people, currently and throughout the ages! What kind of a Creator is this, giving life to so many people, plants, animals, and sustaining each at every second? Blows your mind? Well, say allahu akbar! That is why allahu akbar “God is great” is a common invocation during Eid! Open up your heart & mind, and enjoy glorifying your Maker!
May this Eid be full of remembrance, gratitude and praise! May we all feel the joy of being created, being addressed and cared by the Merciful and Powerful One! May this joy spread to the rest of the year inshallah!
