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.
He was Umar ibn Abd al-Aziz, the eighth Caliph of the Umayyad Empire. He is known until today as "the most pious and devout" of the Umayyad rulers. He held the highest office of such a great and powerful empire. Yet, his #EidStory seemed to portray otherwise.
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".
How about making this Eid more meaningful?
