Apologies! Didn't know there was a caption limit... 😣 Please see PART 2 below of Sunnah actions for Eid Al Fitr inshaAllaah: __________ 5) EATING AN ODD NUMBER OF DATES: The Prophet Muhammad ﷺ would eat an odd number of dates before leaving his home for the Eid prayer. One of the wisdoms behind this, is to show that the fasting of Ramadhan is now complete, and the day of Eid is for eating and celebrating. 6) ATTENDING THE EID SALAAH; OUTSIDE IF POSSIBLE: The Eid Salaah/prayer is one of the beautiful highlights of Eid. It is a prayer that is performed before midday, consisting of two units with a short Khutbah to follow. The Sunnah is to perform the prayer outside, and there are many masjids today that have revived this act by performing it in their local parks. However if unable, you may perform it indoors at the masjid. 7) ATTENDING THE EID PRAYER, EVEN IF YOU ARE A MENSTURATING WOMAN It is a sad reality of our times, that many sisters do not come out on the day of Eid to pray and celebrate with the wider community. Many are left at home to cook and clean all alone, and this is not from the Sunnah! The Prophet Muhammad ﷺ encouraged the young, old, married, unmarried, men and women (menstruating or not) to attend the Eid gathering of the wider community. Although the menstruating women is unable to pray, she can still celebrate and be included amongst the other Muslims and say the Eid Takbeer. 8) TAKING TWO DIFFERENT ROUTES TO AND FROM THE PLACE OF EID PRAYER: The scholars have differed over the wisdom behind this. Some have noted, this way you are able to meet the Muslims from different areas, greet one another and spread peace and affection on that day to each other. _______________ #Eid2018 #Eid #EidulFitr #EidAlFitr #Celebrate #Takbeer #AllaahuAkbar #IslamicReminders #IslamicQuotes #Reminders #MuslimReminders #Islam #Deen #Ummah #OneUmmah #Sunnah #Quran #Muslim #Muslimah #Allaah #Allah #God #MusingsOfASister

EID MUBARAK! We have reached the end of another blessed month of Ramadhan. May Allaah accept it from us and from you - aameen. ♥️ ______________ In preparation for Eid inshaAllaah, we would like to share some Sunnah (recommended) acts to do on the day of Eid [PART 1] 1) THE EID TAKBEER The Eid Takbeer is a special type of dhikr that one is highly recommended to say during the days of Eid. The Eid Takbeer begins at sunset of the 1st Shawwal, and ends once the Eid Salaah has started Authentic Eid Takbeer: الله أكبر الله أكبر الله أكبر لا إله إلا الله الله أكبر الله أكبر الله أكبر و لله الحمد Allaahu akbar, Allaahu akbar, Allaahu akbar. Laa ilaaha illAllaah. Allaahu akbar, Allaahu akbar, Allaahu akbar. Wa Lillaahil hamd (Allaah is the Greatest x3, There is no true god but Allaah. Allaah is the Greatest x3, and to Him belongs The praise) 2) PAYING ZAKATUL FITR: Zakatul Fitr, is a charitable donation that is given before the Eid prayer is performed. It is obligatory upon the Muslims to give Zakatul Fitr. The donation should be given as a staple food item, enough to feed one person. This is the best way to do this. However, it is also permissible to donate money to an organisation who will take charge of purchasing the food on your behalf. Typically, the head of the household would pay Zakatul Fitr for themselves and their dependents, even an unborn child is included under this. If you live alone, you will pay it on your behalf only. For further info please see: 3) PERFORMING GHUSL (RITUAL BATH) 4) WEARING NEW CLOTHES FOR EID We should also take note, not to wear clothing with the intention of showing off or for pride, as Allaah dislikes this. We must be humble with our attire but beautiful within the limits set by Allaah. This also means, we must dress in a way that does not compromise our hijab (for both men and women) [PART 2 NEXT POST] ___________ #Eid2018 #Eid #EidulFitr #EidAlFitr #Celebrate #Takbeer #AllaahuAkbar #IslamicReminders #IslamicQuotes #Reminders #MuslimReminders #Islam #Deen #Ummah #OneUmmah #Sunnah #Quran #Muslim #Muslimah #Allaah #Allah #God #MusingsOfASister

. If you are troubled then fall in sujood. If you are happy again fall in sujood and thank Allah. If you're shameful about the acts of your past then fall in sujood. If you're not worried about the akhirat then you must fall in sujood! . Cry to Allah, cry your heart out. If you can't shed tears then at least try, because Allah loves when his servants cry and plead to him to shower his mercy! . You would never require anybody else to listen to you or talk to you when you have Allah who listens to your heart! Ask for his forgiveness before it's too late. . #islamicquotes #muslimreminders #reminder #muslimah #quotes
