Eid Ul Fitr 2021: Day of Gratitude
Eid Ul Fitr is the end of the Holy Month of Ramadan. Almost a Billion Muslims from around the World will gather together with their families to celebrate the end of the Holy Month. They will attend the morning prayer, give donations and will enjoy a meal together with their families.
As we celebrate Eid, it is also a moment of reflection. It gives us the opportunity to reflect and show our gratitude for the wonderful pleasures we are blessed with. It is also important to help the needy and those who are not fortunate enough to enjoy the pleasures of life we are blessed with.
Gratitude for Family
Eid is celebrated by spending time with your family and friends.
We live in a very fast paced society where we are constantly busy with our professional lives and our day to day responsibilities.
Eid is a time where we stop and take a step back to spend time with our loved ones. It’s a great time to get together with the community, share joys and catch up on lives.
Ramadan and Eid teach us the importance of celebrating festive occasions together and to check up on each other. Humans are social creatures and require contact with other social beings to stay healthy and positive.
Thus, it is important to show gratitude for the family we have and the blessing to spend time with them.
Gratitude for Food
The most important gratitude we should show is for food. Muslims abstain from eating food and drinking anything throughout the day in their extremely busy lives. The month of Ramadan reminds us how blessed we are as human beings to have food and water to consume. We take for granted the water and food we eat every day, Eid is the moment to celebrate with food. Families and Friends get together on Eid and share meals together. They bond over food and celebrate the end of a pious Month.
Gratitude for Health
Eid is the moment to celebrate the end of the month of Ramadan. It is important that we appreciate our health and the ability for us to fast through the month.
During our busy everyday life, we can take our health for granted and engage in unhealthy activities. Ramadan is a moment during the year where we step back and take a stock of our health.
Fasting is not easy especially as we live very busy lives. But Eid is the occasion where we take a moment to show gratitude for our health and also to celebrate our internal strength for having the ability to fast for the entire month.
