After having been very busy with many worldly things over the last months, I feel now the need to concentrate again on my faith, to find guidance and support in my religion and to become even more productive with Allah’s blessings, inchaallah.
And as so often, I find good inspiration on this topic here: http://productivemuslim.com/15-golden-keys/
Hope you are all doing fine; peace and light to you!
some tea and cake at home at 6 a.m., and then up to the very early morning prayer in the village:
after greeting everybody and wishing a blessed day, people go home to sacrify the sheep:
and then families sit together, share, prepare BBQ and the lunch and enjoy the atmosphere of this holy day:
and in the afternoons and over the next days tea with friends.
hope your Id was also a blessed one!
Id moubarak said and happy feast of devotion, sacrifice and faith!
Allahumma taqqabbil to all the pilgrims in Makkah (Mecca), in remembrance of prophet Abraham.
some of my memories and facts about that most important celebration in the Muslim year:
Allahumma taqqabbal minni oua minkoum!
some natural-, food- and spiritual- inspiration wishing you all wonderful and blessed last nights of this holy month!
Those who spend their wealth [in Allah ‘s way] by night and by day, secretly and publicly – they will have their reward with their Lord. And no fear will there be concerning them, nor will they grieve. (2:274)
Allah does not charge a soul except [with that within] its capacity. It will have [the consequence of] what [good] it has gained, and it will bear [the consequence of] what [evil] it has earned. “Our Lord, do not impose blame upon us if we have forgotten or erred. Our Lord, and lay not upon us a burden like that which You laid upon those before us. Our Lord, and burden us not with that which we have no ability to bear. And pardon us; and forgive us; and have mercy upon us. You are our protector, so give us victory over the disbelieving people.” (2:286)
