Eid-ul-Adha 2019/1440: A Belated Eid Mubarak!

Eid Mubarak everyone. Taqabbal Allahu Minna Wa Minkum (May Allah accept it from you and us). 

I hope this Eid is a peaceful and joyful one for all of you, full of good food, good company and good deeds insh’Allah. May Allah shower the Ummah with his mercy, love and grant them happiness, peace and contentment.

This year was a quiet Eid for us with our older children away in Pakistan, but it was also a subdued one because of all of the difficult situations Muslim’s are facing round the world.  Our dua’s are with our bothers and sisters in Palestine, Kashmir, China, Burma and India and other places where they are being tested.

Certainly, recent events in Kashmir, have left our community anxious and upset.  I pray that Allah SWT changes the ummah’s trials into happiness and ease and that they too are able to celebrate a joyous and peaceful Eid insh’Allah.

Anas ibn Malik (radhiallahu ‘anh) reported that in the pre-Islamic period people (in Madinah) people used to celebrate two annual days of festivity. When the Prophet ṣallallāhu 'alayhi wa sallam (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) came to Madinah he said, “you used to have two days of celebration, Allah (SWT) has replaced them with two better days: the day of Fitr and the day of Adha.” (Nisai’, Sunan al-Kubra’, 1, 542; Sunan al-Sughra 3:199).

The Prophet ṣallallāhu 'alayhi wa sallam (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said: "The days of (Eid) are days of eating and drinking and of remembering God, the Exalted." (Fiqh-us-Sunnah, Volume 2, Number 153)
