Eid-l-Adha 1435A.H. came with the following gifts-

Gratitude: Saying Alhamdulillah for family, loved ones, abundance, health,happy and sad moments and everything Allah has done for us, the total extent of which we can not fully grasp.

Reflections: on the lessons of Sacrifice, Tawwakul(trust in Allah), Faith,Patience, Submission,Humility,Humanity

Reminder: to remain steadfast and strive to learn our Deen and practise it as the Prophet and the righteous predecessors(Sahabas and the early generations who followed) did.

Dua :for our souls, our families, loved ones and the generality of the Muslim Ummah.

May Allah keep us firm, forgive and protect us,bless and assist us. May He grant us all that is good and protect us from all evil. May we all be among the people of Jannah. Amin.

Taqabalallah mina wa minkum
Min Oumissa
Bil Hubb


We stayed off nourishment from dawn to dusk

Our breaths were dearer to Allah than the scent of musk

Hours we spent poring over the Qur’an

Will draw us closer to earning his Ridwaan


Ditching sleep for Tahajjud was no easy task

A myriad of favours from Him we had to ask

Long into the night we stood for Tarawih

All round the day we generously observed Nawafil


The times we turned our minds away from food

Have done our perseverance a lot of good

And for the scorching days of thirst

We get to enter through the gate of Raihan first


As we scooped handfuls of staple for Zakatul Fitr

Did we promise to keep our daily Witr

Across the world believers rejoice in Eid

How pleasant it feels to follow a wonderful creed
