Eid-ul-Fitr Greetings: A Word to the Soul.





Let the divinity of Lord’s love penetrate your soul
As you observe Eid-ul-Fitr this year
Let yourself take a pause, and think and reflect
Beyond the ephemeral worldly possessions and fears

Let yourself comprehend the truth of Life
The cycles of pleasure and pain
Let your soul be aware of the virtues being gifted
Let God’s efforts bring you peace and eternal gain

Let your head be bowed before Him
In gratitude, recognition and His praise
Let the day shine through the test of time
Let your faith emerge stronger on the spiritual plane

Here's wishing all Muslims around the world a very blessed Eid-ul-Fitr..Eid Mubarak!

AoA Sarah,

Extremely nice words put together in the form of a poem to greet every Muslim on this special religious celebration.

Saying Eid Mubarak in these difficult times is like telling these waters that engulf us, these bombs that tear us apart, these rulers that divide and exploit us, these politicians that excel only in broken promises, and this economic disparity that hits and cripples us that even at the ashes of our dashed hopes we are unbowed and are eager to interact, celebrate, and smile.

I also request everyone not to forget all those fellow Pakistanis who have been hit by the recent natural calamity and donate as generously as possible to those who need it the most at this critical time.

Regards
Faheem

I liked the flow of this spiritual poem. I am not Muslim but could appreciate the meaning behind the words while learning of a religious celebration. There is so much ignorance in the world whether it be cultural, religious, or political. If more people could just accept the the beauty in the differences we could all learn from one another.

I loved it. Yes we need to understand the real meaning of Eid rather than just celebrate the festivity that is associated with it. In these times of trouble we do need Divine guidance and spiritual healing.
