If you are wondering why a non-Muslim story is being fitted to our #EidStory, here are some of the reasons and lessons to which you should pay attention.
The wish of the Muslims in the city of Wetzlar, Germany to perform the communal Eid prayer this year came true when IKEA said yes for them to utilise their spacious parking lot for that purpose.
There is a bigger goal and deeper meaning behind all the significance of Ramadan. That bigger goal is to lift up the spirit of jihad in the Ummah to strive for a revived Islamic civilisation. Yet, every year, Ramadan returns as a blessing from Allah to remedy the Ummah’s apathy, only to be taken lightly by them. May you, the Daies, not become the reason for this!
May the uplifting school of Ramadan and the convocation of Eid al-Fitr create the new us.
The roses are meant to send a "warning to extremists that many in Myanmar don't share their unjust views".
Eid al-Fitr has passed, but are we on the right path of what we should do afterwards? Perhaps we may need to relook into the meaning of Eid al-Fitr, especially beyond the victory of fasting a full-month of Ramadan (and the extra six days of Shawal).
How about making this Eid more meaningful?
