    Default Eid ka matlab aur Eid manana kab se shuru hua ?

    ‘Eid ul Fitr

    As soon as the month of Ramadhan ul Mubarak passes, the exalted festival of ‘Eid arrives amongst us. We assume that on the day of ‘Eid, all we have to do is perform two Rak’ats of prayer and then spend the rest of the day wandering about doing useless things. Some youngsters perform the two Rak’ats prayer and then immediately head for tourist places, cinemas and picnic areas and ruin all the worship that they performed in Ramadhan. Even though the month of Ramadhan came to teach us piety, as soon as the month ends, we forget all about piety.

    Remember! Islam orders and allows celebration; but it most certainly does not allow the kind of celebration which rips the pure laws of Islam into pieces. I am mentioning some points about how we should spend ‘Eid so that we can celebrate ‘Eid within the confines of Islamic law; then celebrating and expressing happiness on the occasion of ‘Eid will be a means for us to obtain goodness and rewards.

    Meaning of ‘Eid

    ‘Eid means ‘celebration day for Muslims, day of happiness.’ On this day, all Muslims perform two Rak’ats prayer, meet one another, shake hands and embrace, greet and talk to each other, and give charity to the poor and needy; hence it is called ‘Eid.

    When was ‘Eid First Celebrated?

    Abu Dawood reports on the authority of Hazrat Anas Radiallaho Ta’ala ‘Anhu that when Rasool Allah Sallalahu Alaihi Wasallam came to Madinah, the people of Madinah would celebrated two festivals. They were asked what these days were and they replied, “We used to celebrate on these days in the days of ignorance.” Rasool Allah Sallalahu Alaihi Wasallam said, “Allah Ta’ala has granted you two better days than these days – ‘Eid ul Adha and ‘Eid ul Fitr.”

    How the Day of ‘Eid Should be Spent

    Islam is the natural religion and it has provided rules and regulations for each moment of the lives of its followers. It has also provided rules on how to spend the day of ‘Eid so that if one celebrates ‘Eid whilst remaining within the limits it has set, then this celebrating will also be written as worship in his book of deeds. However, if one acts against it, then he will be deserving of admonishment and punishment.

    Remember the Poor

    Islam teaches protecting the poor, helping the helpless, and easing the pain and sufferings of orphans and the meek at every turn, and they should not be forgotten, especially on the day of ‘Eid. That is why Rasool Allah Sallalahu Alaihi Wasallam ordered us to pay charity (Sadqa e Fitr) before performing the ‘Eid Prayer so that Muslims remember their poor brothers on this occasion and include them in their happiness. You have read about the different forms of charity and its excellences in previous pages, and here we are specifically going to mention some points in relation to Sadqa e Fitr:
    * Sadqa e Fitr is compulsory (Wajib) on all free Muslims who own more than the qualifying threshold (Nisaab) after their essential requirements have been met. It is not necessary to be sane and mature; it is compulsory on and the responsibility of the guardians to pay Sadqa e Fitr for those who are not mature.
    * Sadqa e Fitr is compulsory on people, not on their property. Therefore, if a person has passed away, Sadqa e Fitr does not need to be paid from his property.
    * As soon as the sun rises on the day of ‘Eid ul Fitr, Sadqa e Fitr becomes compulsory. Therefore, Sadqa e Fitr is compulsory if someone is born after the sun rises, or was an infidel and accepts Islam after sunrise, or was poor and then has more wealth than the qualifying threshold after sunrise.
    * It is not necessary to have been Fasting during Ramadhan for Sadqa e Fitr to be compulsory, even if was as a result of travelling, illness, old age or any other lawful reason that Fasts were not kept. Even (may Allah forbid and protect) if the person did not Fast without any valid reason, Sadqa e Fitr is still compulsory.
    * It is only allowed to give Sadqa e Fitr to those whom Zakat can be given to. Those who cannot be given Zakat cannot be given Sadqa e Fitr either. (Bahar e Shariat)
    * 2.50kg of wheat, or its flour, or the money equivalent to the value of 2.50kg of wheat is the amount of one Sadaqa-e-Fitr.
