Good company is the key to happiness.
I wish I could give a beggar my eyes so he can see that this dunya has nothing to offer.
Some Sunnahs Of ‘Eid
A few Sunnan refarding ‘Eid-ul-Fitr are as follows:
• Reciting Takbīr:
It is Mustahabb to recite Takbīr during the night of ‘Eid from sunset on the last day of Ramadān until the Imām comes to lead the prayer. The format of the Takbīr is as follows:
الله أكبر الله أكبر، لا اله الا الله، الله أكبر، الله أكبر ولله الحمد
Allāhu Akbar, Allāhu Akbar, Lā Ilāha Ill-Allāh, Allāhu Akbar, Allāhu Akbar, Wa Lillāhil-Hamd (Allāh is Most Great, Allāh is Most Great, there is no god except Allāh, Allāh is Most Great, Allāh is Most Great, and all praise be to Allāh).
Ibn Abī Shaybah رحمه الله narrated with a Sahīh Isnād that az-Zuhrī said: “The people used to recite Takbīr on ‘Eid when they came out of their houses until they came to the prayer place, and until the Imām came out. When the Imām came out they fell silent, and when he said Takbīr they said Takbīr.” ● [ارواء الغليل ١\١٢١]
• Taking Gusl:
Sh. Ibn al-‘Uthaymīn رحمه الله: “Some of the scholars regarded it as Mustahabb to do Ghusl for the ‘Eid prayer, because it is narrated that some of the Salaf did this, this is also the opinion of ‘Alī b. Abī Tālib رضي الله عنه.” see: ● [ارواء الغليل ١٤٦، صححه الألباني]
• Eating Odd Number Of Dates:
Narrated by Imām al-Bukhārī from Anas b. Mālik رضي الله عنه, who said: “The Messenger of Allāh ﷺ never used to go out on the morning of ‘Eid-ul-Fitr until he had eaten some dates… of which he would eat an odd number.” ● [البخاري ٩٥٣]
• Going For Salāh From One Route And Coming From Another:
"When Allāh’s Messenger ﷺ would go out on the day of ‘Eid by one route, he would return by another." ● [جامع الترمذي ٥٤١]
• Praying Two Rak’āt Of ‘Eid Salāh
”The Prophet ﷺ went out on the day of ‘Eid and prayed two Rak’āt, and he did not pray before or after them.” ● [سنن النسائي ١٥٨٧]
Sh. Ibn al-‘Uthaymīn رحمه الله commented: “The Muslims are unanimously agreed that the ‘Eid prayer is prescribed in Islām, some say that it is Fard Kafāyah (a communal obligation) and some say that it is Fard ‘Ayn (an individual obligation), and that not doing it is a sin.” ● [مجموع الفتاوى لإبن العثيمين ١٦\٢١٦-٢٢٣]
• Wearing Your Best Clothes:
Sh. Ibn al-‘Uthaymīn رحمه الله: “You should wear your best clothes – this is for men. With regard to women, they should not wear beautiful clothes when they go out to the ‘Eid prayer-place, because the Prophet صلي الله عليه وسلم said: “Let them go out looking decent” i.e., in regular clothes that are not fancy. *It is Harām for them (i.e women) to go out wearing perfume and makeup*.” ● [مجموع الفتاوى لإبن العثيمين ١٦\٢١٦-٢٢٣]
• Greeting ‘Eid After Salāh of ‘Eid-ul-Fitr:
It was narrated that Jubayr b. Nufayr said:
"When the Companions of the Prophet ﷺ met one another on the day of ‘Eid, they would say to one another, “May Allāh accept (good deeds) from us and from you." ● [Ibn Hajar said, its Isnād is Hasan. See: al-Fath, (2/446)]
تقبل الله منا ومنكم
Taqabbal Allāhu Minnaa Wa Minkum.
(May Allah Accept From Us And You)
Ḥasan al-Baṣrī رحمه الله was asked, “Where do you find comfort?” He said: “In prostration after negligence and in repentance after sinning.”
Sometimes you just have to turn off the lights, find your solitude, close your eyes and think of everything and everyone that is no longer bringing benefit to your life, clasp the thoughts really hard…and let go. Let them go. Let it all go. & when you open your eyes and turn the lights on again, make it your aim to move on because you have let go.
