Eid Mubarak! Hope you all are having lovely day! Yesterday was Eid Al-Fitr. I love whenever there is Eid on a Sunday because I get to participate in the celebrations. Fun fact!!! There are four Eids which we celebrate.
What are the four Eids?
-Eid Al-Fitr: This Eid is for the end of the month of Ramadan. After a whole month of fasting, we celebrate by having Eid. It is considered one of the most important and well-known Eids amongst them four.
-Eid Al-Adha: The importance of this Eid is to show Prophet Abraham’s willingness to sacrifice his son,Prophet Ishmael, to Allah. However,in the Quran, it is said that Allah replaced a sheep with his son before the sacrifice. Also, this Eid is well known because this Eid starts on the 10th day of Dhu-al Hijjah and lasts for three days. Usually, Muslims perform Hajj (pilgrimage) to Mecca where the Holy Kaba is located.
-Eid Al-Ghadir: The significance of this Eid is when Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) appointed the next leader. After the prophet passed away, some believed that Hazrat Ali (pbuh) should be the leader, but others thought that Hazrat Abu Bakar(pbuh) should be the leader. This caused a split which is now called Shia and Sunni. Shia believe that Hazrat Ali(pbuh) should’ve been the leader and Sunnis believe that Hazrat Abu Bakar(pbuh) should be the leader.
-Eid Al-Milad al Nabi: This Eid is important because it is Prophet Muhammad’s birthday.
What do Muslims do on Eid?
All around the world, Muslims celebrate Eid by praying, dancing,eating, participating in festivals and most importantly, spending time with their loved ones.
What did I do on Eid?
Overall, I had fun time on Eid yesterday. I took many pictures with friends and family. We danced, prayed, and enjoyed the entire day. After praying, we watched a Bollywood movie called Sultan. We booked the entire theater for our friends and it was so much fun. After that I ate at Chuy’s. It was a fun-filled day in general. Also, shoutout to one of my best friends, Muskaan!
