On this day of Eid ul fitr, we ask Allaah to accept all our fasting, prayer, supplications, charity and good deeds. We ask that He rewards us with His forgiveness and entry into Paradise. By the grace of Allaah, we bid this month farewell, taking with us lasting memories of breaking fasts with friends and family, praying the nightly prayers in unison, restraining our desires of hunger and thirst during this year’s long, hot days, and maintaining our patience despite our daily struggles; all this for the sake of Allaah, the One and the Only

The spirit of Ramadan is one of empathy and love for your Muslim brothers and sisters. We spend an entire month abstaining from food and drinks so that we can feel the pain of those Muslims brethren who sometimes go days without these basic necessities. The Holy month of Ramadan culminates in Eid-ul-Fitr – a celebration and reward for an entire month of patience and brotherliness. For the poor and needy to be included in this celebration, each Muslim is under an obligation to pay a certain amount in kind or in food, which is known as Fitrana.
According to an agreed-upon hadith:
“None of you will believe until you love for your brother what you love for yourself.” (Bukhari: 13, Muslim: 5)
