I hate you, you and you!!

A friend sent me:
“Hope Love and Laugher,
warmth, wishes, joy and
a bouquet of Eid wishes, jubilations,
become a part of your Eid and Your Life.
Have a Happy Eid Mubarak.

…but I’m still unhappy. I’m unhappy because everyone around me is happy; happy of things they are not supposed to be. They are happy because they have completed the fasting month, or some would say they are ‘free’ after 30 days in ‘custody’. Whatever they may put it; I just hate all of them! To me, I would prefer every day is in Ramadan. But I know, Allah has ordained only one month for fasting and 11 months not; is because we as Muslims need it and I need that too.

A Ramadan graduate

You have to bear in mind that after you have graduated as a Ramadan graduate, you ought to have a scroll of Taqwa embedded in your heart; because University of Ramadan teaches us Taqwa.

If we go through Ramadan with determination, we are automatically equipped with a defensive system that deters ourselves from passing the boundaries.

“and take a provision (with you) for the journey, but the best of provisions is right conduct (Taqwa). So fear me, O ye that are wise”
Surah Al-Baqarah: 197

I want to stress here that you are only exempted from this University of Ramadan and counted as a Graduate after you have the automatic defensive system of Taqwa.

Credits for those who have won this scroll of Taqwa!

The true meaning of Eid UL Fitr

Eidul Fitr means ‘Festival of purification after completing Ramadan’*, according to this definition, there are prerequisites in order for us to celebrate it; purification is the former; celebration of Eid is the latter. Purification here ‘means back to Fitrah’, also means purified as cleanse as a baby.

 How can we obtain purification? :

عن أبي هريرة رضي الله عنه أن رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم قال: (من قام رمضان إيماناً واحتساباً غُفر له ما تقدم من ذنبه) متفق عليه
“Whoever stands in Ramadan with belief and expecting the reward, his past sins will be forgiven”

…But the question now is, are we confident that our sins are purified? This is why I hate those people you arrogantly celebrate Eid as if their purified. You already know that you have loads of unfinished business with Allah that requires your repentance but why you act arrogantly? Why you act as if you’re sinless? This is why I hate you!

Yes you can be happy but be happy accordingly. Don’t celebrate and forget everything. That day, what is haraam is still counted as haraam. Holidays are only meant for Human beings, the works of angels never end. All our deeds are still scribbled in our book of deed.

It’s more than just a wish

Eid UL Fitr is more than just a wish, more than just typing or forwarding sms:

Hope Love & Laughter,
warmth & wishes
joy and a Bouquet of Eid Wishes,
Especially for you!!!
Jubilation becomes a part of your Eid and your life….!


Until now, I haven’t sent or forward any Eid UL Fitr wishes to anybody because to me, wishing something that I hate is just nothing, trash.

            You know, the first day of Eid, I got more than 15 Eid wishes but during 30 days of Ramadan, not more than 5 text messages in my inbox. Why is this happening?  That is why I hate you!

            You should understand that Eid is more than just a wish, more than a message too.
Let us revive and realize

How many Ramadans have we gone through?
Why are we still the same? This is not a lie but true, so true!
How many Eid UL Fitr have we celebrated?
Are we purified as the moment we were created?
Have we asked for His forgiveness?
Or are we still in our darkness?

Let us realize and revive,
let us wake up and strive,
Let us stand up and go forward,
let us speak up and spread the word,
have Allah created us for nothing?
No, HE created us for the best in everything.

This is why I hate you, you and you!

This is why I hate you, you and you if you don’t understand the true meaning of Eid UL Fitr… Finally, this is a wish from me:

Look Outside
It’s so pleasant!
The sun smiling for you,
trees Dancing for you,
birds singing for you,
because I requested them All to wish You

Salam. kenapa byk post cakap "benci" kepada "segolongan orang". Mereka mungkin silap. mungkin byk kelemahan. Tapi selagi mereka "Islam", mereka tetap saudara kita.
Kita sepatutnya tidak mencaci dan memaki, malah menyedarkan. Mungkin mereka tidak betul2 faham. Maka, tugas siapa untuk memberitahu mereka? Mereka mungkin terlupa. Maka tugas siapa utk mengingatkan mereka? Kita xberhak menghukum siapa. Tapi jika mereka tidak faham atau terlupa, mungkinkah ia menjadi dosa kita? Wallahua'lam..
