Safe with Allah

Today, sadness filled my heart after receiving the news about my mother’s aunt. She passed away this afternoon at 2:45 pm. She was very old and sick. And she spent the last month of her life in the hospital. I never had the chance to visit her when she was ill. So, last time I saw her was last year. I feel so sad and guilty for not being near her. She was a kind woman and I always called her Mom.

I wish to see her in the other life and tell her that I love her. may Allah have mercy upon her and make her soul at peace.

Eid Al Fitr (First Muslims Eid)

In this post, I would like to share with you about the Muslims Eids... Muslims have 2 Eid every year, Eid Al Fitr and Eid Al Adha and each one has a different meaning.

Eid Al Fitr is the first Muslims Eid. It is a holiday of three days after the holy month of Ramadan where the Muslims fast for 30 days for Allah from dawn to dusk to share the feeling of hunger with the poor people and give them the money and food. After Ramadan comes Eid Al Fitr where the happines spread between all the Muslims and they start giving charity money and clothes to the poors to share the Eid happines.

Eid is an Arabic word meaning "festivity", while Fitr means "charity" and the holiday symbolizes the breaking of the fasting period which was on Ramadan.

After Few days, Eid Al Fitr will start and I am waiting to celebrate it with my family and friends ^___^ and I am really happy that I had the strength to fast Ramadan for Allah and share my feelings with the poors.
