As we wake up feeling so right and seeing the familiar faces in our never ending sea of lies, that even a flower whose color have turned to different shades of grey begins to change We say: TaqabalaLLahu Minna Wa Minkum!
Entering the day with a smile on our faces and with our hearts filled with fufilment and joy, as we look beyond the appearance and circumstances We say: TaqabalaLLahu Minna Wa Minkum!
As the light of happiness radiates in each one of us, burning with delight as it lays deep inside of us, guarded by bones and muscles with nothing to blow it out but ourselves We say: TaqabalaLLahu Minna Wa Minkum!
What we feel today cannot be defined, something that cannot be denied, something of true divine. So together in supine mode We say: TaqabalaLLahu Minna Wa Minkum!
We pray to Allah to not make this our last Ramadan on earth and may He accept all of our good deeds in this month as an act of Ibaadah. (Aameen) TaqabalaLLahu Minna Wa Minkum!
Written by: Ummu Ubaidah Penword, May Allaah Preserve Her.
The congregation of the ‘Eid prayer is generally lager than that of the Jum’ah and that of the jum’ah in turn is larger than that of the obligatory daily prayers. This misleads some people to think that each is as important as the size of its congregation and so while they agreed to pray at home daily, they insisted on permission to congregate for Jum’ah and now press more strongly for ‘Eid congregation.
While we hold that the ‘Eid prayer is obligatory, we acknowledge that the scholars are not unanimous on it. They are unanimous on the obligation of the daily prayers.
The misplacement of importance explains perhaps why some governors known to have ordered that daily prayers be said at home are now reported to be easing the restriction for the sake of the ‘Eid prayer.
It is in the news that the Sultan has countered the permission issued by those governors and we need to get it right too that the Sultan’s order’ not to congregate publicly for ‘Eid supercedes that of any governor in this matter. May Allah always guide us to the right position in every disputed matter.
