A Real Eid

Print

The reality of Eid is encapsulated in some couplets attributed to Sheikh Abdul Qadir Jailani (rahimahullah). If the message of these couplets is taken to heart, Insha-Allah one will truly have an Eid in reality:

"Eid is not for the one who has worn new garments

Eid in reality is for the one who has gained safety from the warnings (of punishment)"

"Eid is not for the one who rides a smart conveyance

Eid is for the one who has left out sins"

"Eid is not for the one who has worn exotic perfumes

Eid is for the one who repents and does not return to sin"

May Allah Ta'ala grant us a true Eid. Aameen.
