Eid Mubarak 2012

Eid Mubarak 2012

Muslims around the world welcome the day of Eid victory (Eid al-Fitr) with joy after carrying out a full month of religious fasting in the holy month of Ramadan as a Muslim duty. In the month Muslims are trained to work hard to practice their religion sincerely. Not only learning of hunger and thirst, but also trained to always control their emotions.

Muslims who had reached the point of victory in the month of Shawwal (Eid al-Fitr) are that they are capable of implementing positive habits as well as in the month of Ramadan as the fourth pillar of Islam to be applied to other months. Such as performing prayers at night, reading the Qur'an and dhikr expect ridlo and forgiveness of God.

Fasting (Shaum) in Islam has rules adapted to human nature and does not intend to trouble or torment humans. Muslims are required to fast before dawn meal (eat in the morning) before the Fajr prayer, and they have to break the fast at Maghrib prayer. Muslims are forbidden to fast without break (no food or drink).

Before the Eid prayer, Muslims are required to issue a tithe (Zakat Fitrah) to be distributed to the poor in order to help others and to clean up property owned before God someday.

May this Eid 2012 make us clean from all sins and mistakes we have done in the past. May God always gives the right and forgive our sins. Amin.
