All praise and adoration belong to Allah, who His mercy encompasses everything, who made the fasting in the month of Ramadan easy for us.
May the peace and blessing of Allaah be upon the noble Prophet, his household and his companions.
We are in the month of Shawwal and today is Eid Li- Fitri, as we all plan for the celebration, it is worthy of note that on an auspicious day like this, Shatan will burst into tears, crying profusely and his Qabiluhu (his soldiers from the jinns or his tribes), will now ask him the reason for his crying and he would say to them that,
“It’s these Ummah (Muslims),”Kodighafaro Lahu biyedi Li- Ummah ”
Allah has Pardoned them, they have seen the forgiveness of their Creator”…………, Shatan will now tell his followers, thus,
These are what you will do now, you will go and make the world appears beautiful and attractive to them and works on the ways to lure, tempt,and entice them.
Limit their perspective to the gains, pleasures and enjoyment of this world alone, and make them forget the path that Allah (SWT) has chalked out for them all during their supplications .
Those whom Allah has forgiven and Pardoned, would now become who will see the wrath of Allah again……………………..Subuaanallah!
And that why it’s disheartening that today,we will see who has abandoned …………….
1⃣ Pool parties
2⃣ Drinking of alcohol and gambling
3⃣ Fornication and adultery
4⃣ Boyfriend /girlfriend relationship
5⃣ Backbiting, slander or lies and many other major sins, for good Twenty-nine days will go back to their respective sins and they will now become Pigs that goes back to mud after being bathed .
Infact, Zinna and drinking of Alcohol are honourably things in the society today, those who abstained from it would be seen as uncivilised by people who wallow in ignorance.
Dear Ummah, run away from Shaytan and bid farewell to Evil and let Allaah’s blessings be upon you forever.
Allah SWT, warns us to stay away from Shaytan, “O Children of Adam! Let not Shaitan (Satan) deceive you, as he got your parents (Adam and Hawwa’ (Eve)) out of Paradise” Quran, Al-Aaraf: 27.
“. . . and follow not the footsteps of ‘Shaytan’ (Satan). Surely he is to you an open enemy” Quran, Al-Anaam: 142.
May Allah protect us from Shaytan and his forces among men and women,overlook our shortcomings and forgive our sins, both apparent and hidden, major and minor.!
Fasting six days of Shawwal after the obligatory fast of Ramadhan is Sunnah Mustahabbah, not wajib. It is recommended for the Muslim to fast six days of Shawwal, and in this there is great virtue and an immense reward. Whoever fasts these six days will have recorded for him a reward as if he had fasted a whole year, as was reported in a Sahih hadith:
“Whoever fasts Ramadhan and follows it with six days of Shawwal, it would be as if he fasted for a lifetime.” Muslim,and Ibn Majah.
May Allah bless you and your families on the day of Eid and bring victory to this Ummah globally, remove its suffering and grant Izza back to Islam and Muslims.
Taqabal Allah minna wa minkum
(May Allah accept (this worship) from us and from you)
Eid Mubarak to all (celebrating on Sunday or Monday/Tuesday based on moon sighting)
