Eid Around the World

Ibn Abbas (ra) narrated:

'When the day of Eid al-Fitr [begins], the angels descend on earth, where they take their positions at access points of roads, calling out with a voice that is heard by the whole creation of Allah, except men and Jin, "O Ummah of Muhammad (saw)!Come out to your most Noble and Gracious Lord, who grants much, and pardons the major sins".

When they (the Ummah) proceed to their places of prayer, Allah, Exalted is He, says to His angels, "O My angels! What is the reward of a worker when he has done his work?"

So they (the angels) say, "Our Lord and Our Master! To receive his reward [for the work, in full]".

So He [swt] says, "I call you to witness that, for their fasts [during Ramadan], and for their standing in prayer at night, I have made their reward My Pleasure, and my Forgiveness. Depart [from here], you are forgiven"'. [Lataif al-Ma’arif]

SubhanAllah, the day of Eid al-Fitr is an incredibly special occasion - and the perfect chance to share our blessings with the worldwide Ummah! Here are some of the ways you brought joy to our brothers and sisters in Eid al-Fitr 2021:

In Bangladesh, a community gathered in the local masjid built by a ļֱ donor, to make du'a on one of the most blessed days in the year!
SubhanAllah, thanks to a generous donor, they have a place to gather and worship Allah (swt) on Eid al-Fitr! The masjid is truly the heart of the community and we pray the donor reaps Sadaqah Jariyah rewards for years to come, amin!
After the Eid prayer, it's time for a delicious Eid meal with our families! Thanks to your donations, our brothers and sisters in Sri Lanka were able to enjoy these blessings too!
Your Zakat al-Fitr means orphans and vulnerable children can enjoy a nutritious meal on Eid, just like our own children. Pictured above, a family in Sri Lanka are looking forward to some delicious Eid food!
In blessed Syria and Yemen, your Ramadan Food Parcels were life-saving, ensuring families stayed nourished over the whole blessed month and on Eid al-Fitr!

Ma sha Allah, you also donated to our bread factories, building houses for IDPs in Syria and our massive water project in Aden (Yemen) - so your Zakat and Sadaqah will be saving lives long after Ramadan has passed, in sha Allah!
While delicious Eid food is important, we can't underestimate the joy of receiving a gift on this blessed day!

Many of our generous orphans sponsors sent a child a gift to let them know they were thinking of them.

We also had group Eid distributions in Malawi (pictured above) and Mauritania. We hope these boys enjoy their Eid presents for many months to come!
The Prophet (saw) said, 'Paradise has a door which is called 'Joy' - only those who bring joy to children will pass through it'. [Dailami]

SubhanAllah, you brought joy to so many children across the globe over the blessed days of Ramadan and Eid! Pictured above, children in Sri Lanka present their beautiful, handmade Eid cards to thank you for your generosity and wish you Eid Mubarak!

We pray Allah always keeps these children smiling - and that one day, their smiles are the reason you walk into Jannah through the Door of Joy, amin!

The Prophet (saw) said, 'He who does not thank the people is not thankful to Allah'. [Abu Dawud]

On behalf of the team at ļֱ, and all the beneficiaries around the world, we’d like to say a huge THANK YOU to each and every one of you!

We encourage you to continue giving regularly after Ramadan, as Allah loves for us to be constant in our righteous actions! Here are some perfect causes for regular giving:

We pray Allah accepts our Ramadan efforts and enables us to reach next Ramadan, amin!
