Eid Mbaarik.......divided or united?
Eid Mubarak to all Muslims. May Allah bless Muslims with forgiveness and happiness.
Eid is meant to be showing the solidarity and unity among Muslims. But I wonder if we see it in that way. For every Muslim fasting is during the month of Ramadan and Eid at the end of Ramadan. However for some of the Muslims, today is Eid where as for the others tomorrow is Eid.
Is this really the way it should be? will the Muslims always be celebrating our Eid on different days. Will we see a day Muslim Ummah celebrate Eids on a single day, showing ourselves as united rather than divided?
Eid Mubarak once again.
I am Rafiu Jameel from Addu City, Maldives. I use Alif Laam Gaaf as my pen name which stands for 'pen that loves fairness' ( Insaafah Loabikuraa Galan) Tell you the truth, I am not a so called IT person. However, if I never use internet , I'd stay a stranger of this wide network of information, which I am sure does not sound very good for a teacher in the 21st century. I am not someone who is so good in English either. Yet I am not someone who wish to make it a barrier for me to express what I think and what I believe. Thank you for visiting my blog. I welcome any comments or criticism that fits to the limits of Islam and constitution of Maldives. Indeed, I'd love to get your comments. :) Please, kindly refrain from using any foul words. Hope you'd enjoy my blog posts.
