Eid Mubarak and Selamat Hari Raya to all of you! Taqqabalallahu Minna wa Minkum (May Allah swt accept[the fast and worship] from us and you).
I hope you guys had a beautiful first day of raya yesterday spent with your family and closest of friends, as I did. And for some of you overseas, today will be your Eid day, so have a lovely lovely one full of His blessing and barakah!
Ending Ramadan and welcoming this day is always a bitter sweet feeling, but our Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) said this was a day of victory and celebration, and so we should praise Allah and enjoy the day as much as we can (or in Malaysia, enjoy the next month ahead, hehee). I just hope that the tranquil and serene past month that was given to us to self reflect and rediscover our true purpose doesn't get lost again till we meet the next Ramadan inshaAllah. Let's ask Allah to make it easy for us to continue to carry on the deeds we got into the habit of doing, and bring it into our every day routine for the next year ahead. And to continue to work on working on our relationship with our parents, friends, colleagues and neighbours.
Let's try our best to have a special relationship in our own way with Allah swt, by always staying as close as possible to Him as we can. With Him is where peace, content and true victory lies. :)
Much love from me,
