Hazrat Ali’s Sermon on Eid ul-Fitr

September 23, 2008

Salaam and Greetings of Peace:

Ramadan will soon be over, and so it is fitting to repost this from last year.

On the day of Eid-ul-Fitr, Hazrat Ali (A.S.) delivered a sermon in which he said:

“O people! Verily this day of yours is the day when the righteous are awarded and the wretched are losers. It is a day which is similar to the one on which you shall be standing (before your Lord). Therefore, when you come out of your homes to go to places of your prayer, remind yourselves about the day when you (your souls) shall come out of your bodies to go to your Lord. When you stand on places of your prayer, remind yourselves of your standing in the presence of your Lord (on the day of Judgment). And when you return to your homes (after prayer), remind yourselves about your returning to your homes in Paradise. O Servants of Allah! Verily the minimum reward for those men and women who fasted (during Ramadan), is an Angel, who calls out to them on the last day of the month of Ramadan (saying): O SERVANTS OF ALLAH! REJOICE THE GLAD TIDING THAT ALL YOUR PREVIOUS SINS HAVE BEEN FORGIVEN…”

- From the Nahjul-Balaghah.

Eid-ul-Fitr is a unique festival. It has no connection with any historical event nor is it related to the changes of seasons or cycles of agriculture. It is not a festival related in any way to worldly affairs. Its significance is purely spiritual. It is the day when Muslims thank God for having given them the will, the strength and the endurance to observe the fast and obey His commandments during the holy month of Ramadan.

Alhamdulillah! May Allah bless us all, and grant that we use this Eid as a lens to focus the sun of good works, that have shone so brightly during Ramadan, to light the way through this coming year until the next Ramadan. Amin.

Eid Mubarak!

Ya Haqq!


Grandpa Darvish…AGAIN!!!!

Salaam and Greetings of Peace:

Alhamdulillah! My daughter called and told me I am to be a grandfather… again!!! Now that both my beautiful daughter-in-law and daughter are pregnant, I am contemplating the joy of spoiling my future grandchildren and then returning them to their parents :) hehehe

Although it is still too early to know the gender of the children, it is never too soon to start saving for their education. So please, if you can, consider buying a copy of Master of the Jinn HERE (It would make an excellent Eid gift). Or the Mobipocket Ebook HERE. Or the Ebook for Amazon’s Kindle Book Reader HERE.

Inshallah, I will see them go to college :)

Eid Mubarak – Feed the Hungry

October 13, 2007

Salaam and Greetings of Peace:

This letter came recently from our Sister Aaminah, of the Writeous SisterSpeaks blog. Please read it and then do what love demands.

Bismillahir Rahmaanir Rahiim
Asalaamu alaikum wa rahmatullah wa barakatuh.
Eid Mubarak to my dear brothers and sisters in deen!

At this time of celebration, I wanted to share a simple way that we can continue to remember one of the purposes of Ramadan throughout the year, and inshaAllah continue to provide sadaqah to those in need. Many of you may already be familiar with this site, but I hope this serves as a reminder if you know of it already and as a source of knowledge if you were not aware of it, inshaAllah.

At The Hunger Site, you can click on a link, and through the sponsorship of advertisers to the site, food is donated to organizations that distribute it to those in need. THIS COSTS YOU NOTHING! It takes less than 2 seconds, so it costs you no time. It does not require you to write a check or give your credit card number; it costs you no money.

There are other worthy sites linked on The Hunger Site that provide other beneficial services, including raising money for breast cancer research and providing books to children. If you want to spend your money towards these causes, you can make purchases from the sites’ stores, or support the advertisers who are actually paying for your clicks.

This is one very simple way that we can extend our charity all year, and continue to feed those in need, inshaAllah. May Allah continue to bless you and your family.

Aaminah

“And spend in the way of Allah and cast not yourselves to perdition with your own hands, and do good (to others); surely Allah loves the doers of good”. – (Surah Al-Baqarah: Ayah 195)

A Buddhist Lesson for Eid

October 10, 2007

Salaam and Greetings of Peace:

Gold dawn disk edges purple cliffs.
Old woman bends to sweep temple steps.
She bathes each stone with loving care.
How many worshippers think of her work?

I went at dawn to a magnificent temple. Its architecture was such a supreme expression of the human spirit that it was a treasure. Generations of worshipers had left offerings at the shrines, hundreds of monks had reached their enlightenment on the consecrated grounds, and thousands had been blessed in life and death in the venerable halls.

Yet my most moving observation was an old woman silently sweeping the steps. Her concentration was perfect. Her devotion was palpable. Her thoroughness was complete. Her uncelebrated act showed a true holy spirit.

Later in the day, wealthy people came to worship. Children with brightly colored toys ran over the gray stones. The abbot walked to his ceremonies. Monks passed in silent prayer. Of all who passed, how many were aware of the saintly service that had made their own devotion possible?

When the way is all we have to walk, those who prepare the way should be truly honored.

Alhamdulillah! This beautiful observation is indeed worth remembering during Eid. Watch the women – the mothers, wives, sisters, daughters, aunts - in the kitchen preparing the food, cleaning the home, setting the table or the sufreh. Observe the care they take, the devotion and love they put into the tasks, and remember to thank them.

Eid Mubarak! 

Ya Haqq!
