Eid - An elevated example of humanity
Eid celebration ( Eid Al-Fitr) with great pomp and show, Zeal and gusto as the festival marks the end of Ramadan, a holy month of fasting. Eid begins the month of Shawwal, which starts with a feast to end the time of fasting.
The month of Ramadan purifies the soul. During Eid, Muslims will often buy new clothes for the event and participate in celebrations and festivities. At the same time, on the day of Eid, we get up early in the morning. Take a bath and wear our best and new clothes. Then go to mosque or Eid Gah for pray, thank Allah. After that, embrace one another and exchange of Eid greetings. ?Eid Mubarak ? is on the lips of each brothers and sisters.
Food is a major part of the Eid. Eid Al-Fitr is known by ?Sweet Eid? because of the variety of sweet dishes being cooked and devoured on this day celebrating Ramadan?s (brings Allah?s mercy) happy end. Fasting on this day is not granted. Muslims are urged to give charity or Zakat Ul-Fitr in the form of food during the last days of Ramadan and before the Eid Prayer for the benefit of each Muslim female, male, adult or minor in one?s household. This ensures everybody in the community can join in Eid feasts and festivities. Though not preferred, some give money.
Eid is a festival of love and goodwill. It gives us a message to love and teaches to embrace all men and women as brothers and sisters. It exhorts us to bid goodbye to hatred, jealousy, and enmity and bring in an era of love, sympathy, and kindness.
In short, I can say that Ramadan and Eid Al-Fitr is the best example of humanity and brotherhood in today's aggressive world.
