Tonight starts the celebration of Eid ul Fitr (Feast of Breaking Fast),
For a month, Muslims around the world fasted from sunrise to sunset for the month of Ramadhan. During that time, we could not eat, drink, take medications, have relations with our spouses, etc. during the daylight hours. Also during this month we read and study the Qur’an. Many go to the masajid (mosques) and pray extra prayers in the night. We give more charity and have more communal activities.
If one is sick or on a journey, he or she does not have to fast at that time; however, the days missed must be made up prior to the next year’s Ramadhan. But, if one has an illness that cannot be cured, they can feed a poor person for each day he/she cannot fast. This is a special time for Muslims and many who fell by the wayside are often brought back to the Deen (way of life/Al-Islam) during this time.
I am extending a great big Eid Mubarak to the entire Muslim Ummah (Community). I pray that your fasts, prayers, and charity are accepted and that you continue to live a productive life. I pray that Allah (SWT) grant you good in this world and the hereafter. Ameen.
