One Step Closer - Eid
1- We have been trying to do our best in Ramadan in terms of abiding by the
acts of worship that Allah loves; now in Eid can we have fun? Yes, of course,
we can have fun, we should have fun in Eid, and in reality it is an act of
worship if it is the positive type of fun which is responsible, you cannot
achieve fun in displeasing Allah, committing sins brings you only sadness and
sorrow, so we should seek happiness through the things that Allah tells us
about, that they bring happiness, because He is the One Who knows what is good
for us, so don't be submissive to other ways of life that are incompatible
with Islam, don't let such ways set the term for you and define what is fun
and what is not, No we as Muslims we have our own character that is based on
our trustworthy standards Qur'an and Sunnah, with real knowledge about them we
can tell what is fun and what is not.
2- If you want a happy Eid, then make it like the prophet's Eid, enjoy Eid as
the early generation used to enjoy it, by greeting each other's, visiting the
family, and let children enjoy their time as well.
3- If we contemplate the two Eids that we have, both of them come after great
act of worship, Allah is our Creator He knows the nature of Human beings that
they need some times out after doing the hard work, but this doesn't mean we
make a separation between worshipping Allah and being happy, we don't give up
worship to be happy, in reality in Eid we come to new acts of worship one of
them is feeling happy with maintaining the previous acts of worship that we
did, so it shows that our feeling of happiness emerges and comes as a result
of fulfilling our duty towards Allah, and that we are obedient to Him, putting
in mind that this is the reward from Allah in this world, and we are still
waiting for the greater reward in the Hereafter, so we are happy with the
Mercy and the Grace of Allah, and this is the thing that we should be happy
with, because it is the best happiness we can feel.
Eid is for those who worshipped Allah during Ramadan, but as for those who
didn't observe the rights of Allah will they feel happy? The heart is created
by Allah and it won't find happiness except in having connection with Him, so
if somebody feels happy without this, then it is not a constructive type of
happiness, it is a fake one, and the things that make you happy reflect your
main purpose of life, real believers are happy with worshipping Allah.
4- Treat people with respect, but let them know that you can't be in a place
where sins are committed, be proactive and take the initiative to share wisdom
with people with showing them concern.
5- Enjoying yourself doesn't mean hurting others, so be sensitive, and share
the happiness with people.
