Keep reciting the Eid Takbir (Allahu Akbar Allahu Akbar La Ilaha Ila Allah Wa Allahu Akbar Allahu Akbar Wa Lillahi Alhamd) as much as you can wherever you go from the maghreb of the last day of Ramadan till the Eid Prayer! Try to Recite the takbeer in the car, in the shopping malls, at home!Revive this Sunnah and truly feel the greatness of Islam.
Follow Sunnah Before Eid Prayer:
The following given acts are prescribed as Sunnah at the beginning of the day of ‘Eid-ul-Fitr before proceeding to the Eid prayer:
1. Take bath.
2. Put on your best available clothes
3. Wear perfume
4. Eat a sweet food, preferably dates, before the Eid prayer
5. Recite the following Takbir while going to the ‘Eid prayer
“Allahu Akbar Allahu Akbar La Ilaha Ila Allah Wa Allahu Akbar Allahu Akbar Wa Lillahi Alhamd”
Increase Your Supplications:
On this blessed day of Eid, ensure you make dua that Allah accepts all your good deeds and grants you another Ramadan. Thank Allah (SWT) for blessing us with good food, clothes, families/friends, and safety. Also don’t forget the Ummah in your prayers; pray for the Ummah all around the World.
Give Zakat-ul-Fitar for each individual’s part at home/family. Give to to people needy people so they too can share the joys of Eid. It’s the Wonderful event to make your children learn about the charity with open heart. If you got children at home Let them know about the Virtues of Zakat so they have this in their mind from this very early age.
Take a different route to/from the mosque:
In a narration the Prophet (PBUH) used to take a different route on his way back from the Eid prayer. Changing lanes gives you the chances to spread the greetings of Salam to different people.There’s also a subtle meaning here when you come back with a different route, you’re coming back home after Eid a changed and better person inshaAllah.
Visit Your friends/neighbors/relatives:
This is a great part of Eid. Do Visit your dear ones but first keep in mind a few forgotten etiquette:
- Call before you visit (of course you don’t want to visit and find them all sleeping!)
- Take a Gift (no matter how small) especially for the children. Gifts have their own power to express your feelings and happiness so just go for it.
- Invite them to yours as well (they’ve played host, now it’s your turn
Call those who are far and you can’t visit them.For those who have made amends and established broken family relations during Blessed month Ramadan, Eid is your opportunity to strengthen these new ties inshaAllah, so don’t miss out!
Stick to the good deeds:
This is super important, and it’ll make sure that you continue with your good deeds after Ramadan insha’Allah. Make sure you stick to the good deeds after Eid from day 1; so Salah on time, Hijab on (if you’re new to Hijab), reciting and understanding few pages of Quran..etc. You want to build these good deeds into your daily habit and get them to be part of your new routine from day 1. If you let it go on Eid day, it’ll be harder to pick them up again on the 2nd or 3rd day of Eid and so on.
So Here were few easy, simple yet important tips to make your Eid productive. Just keep these things in your back mind and keep implementing smoothly and you will see how much enthusiasm and happiness it puts in your Eid days Insh’Allah.
