The tenth month of the Arabic calendar is the month of Shawwaal. It comes after the sacred month of Rwamadwan. The first day of the month of Shawwaal is the day of ‘Eid ul Fitr. The word ‘Fitr’ means to break. As the ummah of Noor-e-Mujassam, ‘Habeebullah Huzur pak Swallallahu ‘Alaihi Wasallam, have their first meal in the daylight and do enjoyment which is permitted according to Islam in the first day of the month of Shawwaal.
It is mentioned in the Hadees Shareef, narrated by Hajrat Anaas Rwadiallahu ta’ala ‘Anhu, As Noor-e-Mujassam, ‘Habeebullah Huzur pak Swallallahu ‘Alaihi Wasallam made His presence in the sacred city of Madeenah Shareef, he saw that the people of Madeena Shareef had gone through sports in two particular days. Noor-e-Mujassam, ‘Habeebullah Huzur pak Swallallahu ‘Alaihi Wasallam asked them, “what are these two days stand for?” The people of Madeena Shareef said, “We had gone through sports in these two days from the past Islamic age of Ignorance”. Noor-e-Mujassam, Habeebullah Hujur pak Swallallahu ‘Alaihi Wasallam himself stated, “Allah Sub’hanahu Wa Ta’ala has gifted you another two days except for those two days, and the gifted days are superior. It is the day of Eid ul A’dha, or day of sacrifice. Another day is the day of Eid ul Fitr.
It is truly clear in the Hadis Shareef that any kind of ‘Eid or Enjoyment observed by Muslims is not separated from the ‘Ibadah and rememberance of Allah Sub’hanahu Wa Ta’ala. It is notable that every moment, every day, every week, every year or the whole life of a Muslim is mentioned as Ibadah. As it is dictated in a Hadis Shareef that when the answer was begged from Huzur pak Swallallahu ‘Alaihi Wasallam about Ihsan (benefaction) after Islam and Iman (belief), he told
Pray and do ‘Ibadah regarding Allah pak as u see him. If u can’t see him then remember that you are being (watched) seen by him (Bukahri, Muslim).
As it should be mentioned, every moment of a Muslim is included in ‘Ibadah. So the gist of this Hadees Shareef is that a Muslim should live his worldly life as he sees Allah Sub’hanahu Wa Ta’ala and if it is not possible to see Allah Pak, then it should be remembered that he is being seen. A Muslim should obtain one of these two states. If this is the requirement, then a Muslim can’t maintain the practice and ritual of the past Islamic age of ignorance or the rituals maintained by non believers, kafirs, jews, christians, fire and idol worshippers, which opposes the Islamic practices.
Muslims also don’t have the right to go to their festivals and puja-celebrations. If anyone does that, he will be excluded from the fold of Islam and his last Judgment and final placement will be with those kafirs, whom he followed in his worldly life. As it is mentioned in the Hadis Shareef, By Noor-e-Mujassam, ‘Habeebullah Hujur pak Swallallahu ‘Alaihi Wasallam
“That person is not considered as my ummah, who follows another person who is not amongst us.”
He also dictated, “That person will be considered as one of them with whom he kept similarity with.”
So, Muslims will observe Eid, celebrate according to the Islamic practices, governed by Shari’ah. Not embracing any type of non Islamic or anti Islamic ritual, practices or culture.
It should be mentioned, in recent times it is seen that some Muslim brothers-sisters and their children participate in the 31st night, christmas of jews and christians and in the pooja rituals of hindus, NA’OO’ZUBILLAH! May Allah Pak save us! This Muslims should understand that, although they participate in the religious programs of non believers disregarding that it is prohibited in Shariah, the non Muslims never participate in any of the Islamic programs or celebrations like Rwabi-ul-Awaal Shareef, Eid-ul-Fitr, Eid-ul-A’dha, Lailatur Rwagwaaib, Shab-e-Mi’rwaaj, Shab-e-Qa’dr and so on. So what should be the result for Muslims to participate in their programs? The fact is that it will withdraw their belief from them and drive them into hellfire.
