Eid-ul-Fitr is celebrated on the 1st of Shawwal to mark the end of Ramadan, the most sacred month in the Islamic calendar. It is celebrated with zeal and passion around the world. Muslims celebrate Eid by wearing new clothes, cooking delicious meals, and meeting their friends and relatives. Let’s take a look at 10 things you can do this Eid-ul-Fitr.
Muslims start Eid celebrations by reciting Takbeer and keep reciting it before the Eid prayers. In Muslim countries, the Takbeer is broadcast on radio and television channels as well. Takbeer acknowledges Allah Almighty’s greatness.
“Allah is Most Great, Allah is Most Great, Allah is Most Great, there is no god except Allah, Allah is Most Great, Allah is Most Great, and all praise be to Allah”
Recite the Quran
Reading the Quran has immense importance and is encouraged by Allah Almighty. After offering the mandatory Fajr prayers, Muslims recite the Quran to understand Allah (SWT)’s message and earn His blessings.
Present Your Best Self on Eid-ul-Fitr
Allah Almighty has designated two days to be celebrated as Eid-ul-Fitr. We should present our best selves on this occasion. The best method is to perform Ghusl which is a purifying bath. Performing Ghusl early in the morning before Eid Prayer is a good way to celebrate Eid. On Eid, Muslims should wear new clothes or old ones that are well washed and pressed.
Go For Eid Prayers
The Eid prayer is the most important aspect of the day. It is a way to show devotion to Allah Almighty. You can also meet and greet your friends and relatives.
On the occasion of Eid, many sorts of delicacies are cooked in our homes. Tables are filled with flavourful, aromatic, and savory dishes. You can also host lunches and dinners for your friends and relatives.
Visit Your Family and Friends
Eid-ul-Fitr is a festival that brings families and friends together. Make visiting old friends and relatives a part of your celebration. Consider showing kindness to people who have done you wrong and apologize if you have offended anymore.
Remember The Underprivileged
Amidst all celebrations, one should never forget that not everyone is as privileged. There are many families that cannot afford a decent meal even on Eid. It is important to remember the needs of those who are not as privileged as us. Even something as small as a good meal would mean the world to families who are struggling to make ends meet.
Donate to Charitable Organizations
Charitable organizations around the world are trying to make this world a better place for marginalized people. They work for various causes to help the underprivileged. Eid is a great occasion to donate to charitable organizations. You can donate to support an orphan, install a water treatment facility, or provide a free surgery or medical procedure.
Volunteer for Charitable Organizations
Charitable organizations often do not have the resources to hire too many personnel. Hence, a lot of charities depend on volunteers to continue their mission. This Eid, you can help others by volunteering for a charitable organization that’s close to your heart. You can volunteer for Transparent Hands to bring quality health care to deserving patients.
Join hands with Transparent Hands
Transparent Hands provides a variety of surgical and medical treatments to the underprivileged free of charge. So far, over 43,000 deserving patients have received treatments through Transparent Hands. With your support, deserving patients and their families will be able to celebrate Eid to the fullest.
Eid-ul-Fitr is celebrated with great passion all around the world. We should go the extra mile to make it possible for the underprivileged to celebrate Eid as well. You can do so by donating to a charitable organization like Transparent Hands.
