We are on your way for Eid up Fitr prayers. This day is filled with celebration and joyous good cheer being one of few religious holidays we observe.
Its a day filled with nostalgia and great memories. A day filled with love and happiness. A day to prayer for the future and glad tidings. I always miss my grandmother the most on Eid day. We all gather around, her being the center of family. Like everything else, over time, things change but one tradition that has always held strong is being with family. My nieces, nephews, cousins, my aunts, uncles, siblings and parents. And now my husband and most importantly, my son, Farasat. I want to share everything special to me about eid, the excitement and make new memories, new traditions.
In the past few years, since we moved a little further away to Aurora, our Eid day schedule is pretty hectic. Go for prayers, the being the trail of visiting from one relatives house to the next until evening time when we reach house exhausted yet still have the energy to count our loot :)
This year holds a special meaning to me, missing all our loved that are no longer with us. I pray that we are blessed to see another Ramadan and that all our fasts are accepted. I pray for all the Muslims in the world that are oppressed, may Allah keep them protected and out of harms way. I pray all the sick are cured of their ailments.
This year we’re trying something new that I’ve deemed Khan Family Eid Day Fun. With my dysfunctional Pakistani family, wish us luck ;). I can’t wait to tell you all about next week. Stay tuned!
Eid Mubarak to all,
