(Translated loosely as ‘Wishing you well being every year’)


I just got confirmation from our local community that tomorrow,

Tuesday, September 30 is Eid day

Things have been a little crazy in preparation for the big day so that’s why I haven’t been posting as much. 

I pray that Allah has accepted our fast, prayers, dua and good deeds.  Ameen.

May Allah give you a joyous Eid celebration.

The other day, a family sponsored an iftar dinner specifically for converts.  I thought that was really nice since, many times, converts don’t have a big circle of Muslim family or friends to enjoy socializing as much as others.

What’s really nice is if your community has a Family Eid Day party/gathering or children’s festival on the same day as Eid. That way, at least converts can attend and feel part of the celebration too.

Logistically, this doesn’t always work out and more than not, Eid parties are shifted to the weekend because that’s when most people are free.

So, if you know someone with no where to go on the Eid, here’s an idea:  invite them over! 🙂
