Hi everyone, welcome or welcome back to Maya’s Life and Travels. First off, I want to say an early Eid Mubarak to all my Muslim brothers and sisters! I am sure that you all know that tomorrow is Eid Al Fitr which is a religious holiday celebrated by all Muslims around the world that marks the end of the ninth month of the Islamic Calendar, Ramadan. I remember myself yesterday waiting for the hilal sighting (which sighting of the crescent moon to let Muslims know if Eid is the next day and it also determines the end of Ramadan) in Saudi Arabia but there was no sighting of the hilal which means Eid will be on Thursday. This post is not going to be a long one because I need to get ready for Eid! I also wanted to say to keep Palestine in your prayers because they haven’t had a proper Eid in 7 decades. Alright, yallah let’s get started with this post!
In the morning after I get ready usually I have to go to the mosque to perform Salat Al Eid (Eid prayer) which is a special salah (prayer) to celebrate the two eids, Eid Al Fitr and Eid Al Adha which is traditionally done on a musallah in the mosque or on a field. But this year I am doing it at home so I won’t be able to do it at a mosque. This year the Eid prayer will be done differently due to coronavirus and all that stuff. After the Eid Prayer, the imam delivers a Khutbah (a sermon) just like the Imam does on Jummah. After the Eid Prayer, we can all go and celebrate Eid with our family! I am going to my Grandma’s house after to celebrate with my family this year and we are going to have a huge feast! My family gives me both presents and money for Eid.
I am wearing a kaftan this year which is basically a female version of a Kandura but in multiple colours and with decorations on it. My kaftan is a bit similar to this one. I am really proud to own a full set of colourful kaftans because they are so beautiful!
I am also going to wear my Kurt Geiger bag with my Kaftan.
DO YOU CELEBRATE EID? WHAT ARE YOU WEARING FOR EID AND WHAT ARE YOU DOING? I WOULD LOVE TO HEAR FROM ALL OF YOU IN THE COMMENTS AND IN THE FEEDBACK FORM
