What a fantastic feeling !SubhanAllah can you feel the vibes,Yes I felt it a few weeks ago as excitement crept in ,The feeling and effort and the sacrifice and the joy of purchasing that sheep to slaughter for the pleasure of Allah.It takes you back to the story of Hazrat Ebrahim( AS ) .He was put to a test to sacrifice his son Ismaeel (AS) and Allah place a ram in Hazrat Ismaeel AS place ,Alhumdulillah uptil today all Muslims are practising on that Sunnah.
Eid is a very happy occasion
the atmosphere ,
the keeping up with family ties ,the exotic traditional cuisines,
the beautiful attire,we praise Allah for that wonderful gift.Whilst we enjoy ourselves
Did you give a thought about those underprivileged who cannot celebrate like you can ?
Did you ever think of keeping a portion of your sacrificial lamb or Udhiyyah for your poor neighbour?
Did you ever think of inviting a poor widow to come and enjoy a sumptuous meal with you?
Did you ever think of organising a braai for the poor orphans in your community ?
Did you ever wonder if you would see another Qurbani again?
The answers to these questions can be only answered by you alone and no one else.
This year and the previous year has been very different for me and my family, since my beloved passed away,It was kinda sad as we miss his awesome company, as usual,we all got up to a lovely eid breakfast,the day before that my wonderful daughters surprised me with some lovely and yummy goodies they baked for Eid,we later went to the farm where we slaughtered our Udhiyya;it was so exciting and I really loved how the kids witnessed the entire scenario unfolding. This Festival should be a memorable and rewarding occasion every year,children should know and learn all these important aspects of their Deen InshaAllah. The Qurbani was an event to highlight the importance of slaughtering the halaal way as well .I’m glad we spent good quality and spiritual family time together .
I personally felt so beautifully excited. At the farm many exciting scenarios unfolded
,the takbeer at the time of slaughter
the cutting skinning and cleaning of the Udhiyyah
the storage and the packaging of the Udhiyyah
and later on the slicing at the butcher or the chunks of meat being braaied at home.
The meat can be kept for the individual all for himself
or divided into three shares
1/3 for the poor
1/3 for himself
1/3 for friends/family
What a wonderful vibe
what a fantastic feeling
For three solid days we are going to experience this wonderful Gift from Allah bestowed only to Muslims Alhumdulillah And every year these festivals will be repeated over and over again InshaAllah Aameen
