Eid-ul-Fitr 2016/1437 - Eid Mubarak Insh'Allah

Eid Mubarak everyone

Taqaballahu minna wa minkum.
May Allah accept it from you and us.

Kullu am wa antum bi-khair.
May you be well throughout the year.

May this Eid be full of blessings, barakah and joy for all of you insh'Allah.  There has been so much horror and sadness in recent years, I make dua that Allah (SWT) takes humanity along a path that brings us to peace and that we see an end to the bloodshed and suffering insh'Allah.

I pray that this Eid is a peaceful one for the ummah and that we are able to enjoy a happy an blessed day with our family and friends.

Please don't forget, this is a night of ibadat (worship) full of rewards and we should try to gain a little of that reward if we can. From "Shawwal: What to Do On Eid Night, Eid Day, and During the Month" by Mufti Taqi Usmani:

The Night Preceding 'Eid-ul-Fitr'

It had been the practice of the Prophet, Sall-Allahu alayhi wa sallam, that he would not sleep in the night preceding the day of Eid-ul-fitr. This night has been named in a Hadith as the Night of Reward (Lailatul Jaiza). Almighty bestows his rewards on those who have spent the month of Ramadan abiding by the dictates of Shari'ah, and all their prayers in this night are accepted. Therefore, it is desirable to perform nafl prayers in this night. The Prophet, Sall-Allahu alayhi wa sallam, is reported to have said:

Whoever stands up (in worship) in the nights preceding the two Eids expecting rewards from his Lord, his heart will not die when the other hearts will die. (Ibn Majah)

To benefit from this opportunity, one should perform as much worship in this night as he can, and should pray for all his needs and desires.
