Eid Mubarak!


For Muslim parents living in Western countries, we must put in the effort to make Eid a special day for our children. When Rasulullah migrated to Madinah, the people of Madinah had two days of celebration that was tied to their pagan beliefs. Islam came and replaced those two days with the two Eids. On that day, there was music, dance, and festivities - all within the bounds of the Sharia.

It is vital that our children grow up knowing that Islam is not a buzz-kill religion. Islam encourages healthy and wholesome fun - and Eid is one of the days where we celebrate.

Do not send your children to school (unless they've got exams). Plan and make the day special. Unlike living in a Muslim country, it is our duty to create a festive mood for Eid.

Give them gifts, nice clothes, take them somewhere fun, have lollies and ice creams.

Eid Mubarak, everyone!
