It’s Emotional, It’s Eid

وَمَا لَكُمْ مِنْ دُونِ اللَّهِ مِنْ وَلِيٍّ وَلَا نَصِيرٍ

And Muslims! You have no protector or helper besides Allah

Man’s nature is that he seeks only happiness, prefers peace and comfort but always forgets one of his most wonderful virtues and that virtue is to fight, to be patient, to be steadfast. These virtues are not seen in anyone unless the circumstances are against him. In fact, these are not virtues. They have been given by the Holy One who has always assured the patient of his help. This verse has been repeated many times in the Qur’an.

I know a lot of people who were saddened by the slightest trauma but when life tried them they set an example. Surely it is Allah and His help that sustains the falling beings. Even today circumstances, life and events are testing us all but the handler is always with us. We just need to look at him carefully and give ourselves to him. Today is Eid, a festival of joy and happiness. All Muslims are celebrating it with full religious fervor. But Yes, they are just a little broken.

While we were fighting with Corona then suddenly the plane crashed on the houses of my city. Many dreams, many smiles fell to the ground. All the passengers went on a journey to heaven with untold words, unseen promises. People were already burying their loved ones without shrouds, but now a longing to kiss burnt faces has stopped life. We all are seeing that we are going to test, but more than any trial, the help of  Lord are with us, which He has promised to every one of His patient servants. Let’s celebrate Eid, of course, but keep a little pain alive in your heart that this Eid is a little painful

  1. Thanku!! Eid Mubarak you too.. It’s really hard to Cope with the unfavourable circumstances and distresses,particularly in Muslim countries, be it Middle East, Palestine, IOK, rohingyas, or Afghans … PIA plane crash was very unfortunate and heart wrenching… PATIENCE, STEADFASTNESS AND PERSEVERANCE is key..
