June 4, 2019 ️Eid Mubarak☪️Shawal 1,1440
It’s that time of the year when we celebrate Eid-al-fitr after the end of Ramadan—-a month of fasting to bring the worshippers closer to Allah—our protector and sustainer—-with a day of joyous prayer, feast and celebration with family members and friends.
As we reflect, what we have accomplished during the month of Ramadan—-fasting, long nights of sleep deprivation and prayers and giving away to charities and house of worships, but we should thank to Allah for giving us another chance to be those who follow to his commands and guidance, to be closer to him.
Eid-Al-fitra is also a time for forgiveness.Please reach out to your relatives and friends, especially those who you are holding a grudge against and renew your relationship with them. How should we expect Allah to accept our repentance if you are still having hard feelings or grudges towards one another.
May Allah—the merciful—-forgive our sins and and accept our Ramadan. Because we’re only human beings, we’re not angels. Our deeds alone are not enough to get a pass to Paradise.
May this Eid bring peace, happiness, satisfaction and prosperity to all of us, especially those who are living in our homeland. Lately, the Somaliland people are suffering because of economic hardship due to run away inflation, greedy merchants who are gauging prices even during the holiest days of Islamic calendar, and a government that lacks regulations to crack down on these unscrupulous merchants.
Please accept my warmest greetings to you and your family on the occasion of Eid-al-Fitr.
May Allah accept our good deeds and hardwork during the month of Ramadan.
May Allah shower you and your families with his blessings.
