    Dear sis and bros’,

    I was reading some of your stories and MashaAllah they are all different and made me really happy to know how each of you spent Eid day.
    Here, in my hometown, everything went well Alhamdolilah. The only thing I regret is not having performed Eid Prayer.. we were too late and the masjid was crowded MAshaAllah!! We could fortunately listen to the Khutbah Alhamdolilah.. then we embraced and and my family and I went straight away to bring our sheep home.. So we lived again the experience of going to the farmer !!! Waaaw… and what an amazing experience!!! I loved it and will always love it!
    Then, my father slaughtered it.. we took some pictures and worked together to finish the ”job” so that we could do a big barbecue in the yard…

    I am summing-up my Eid day..but seriously.. it was just so gooooooooooooooooooooood Alhamdulilah.

    ” Hope you can understand something of my poor English..” I would have liked to write it down in French but the thing is.. I guess some of you guys can’t understand French…

    May Allah reaward us All with the sweetest date in Jannah! And again..Jazakum Allaho Khairan for reading my ” Eid Story..”

    Alhamdulillah, we had a lovely gathering for Eid, mainly for Chinese Muslims.

    People of all ages came, seniors to children :)

    Alhamdulillah, we had great food, speeches, and socialization.

    Some reverts brought their non-Muslim family members, which was very nice. One speaker mentioned about how Muslims are not alone in this celebration, because Hajj, Kaabah, sacrifice, salah, and fasting are related to many other prophets (peace and prayers be upon them). Another speaker mentioned that Islam is the fastest growing religion and it’s a big blessing from Allah for us and the humanity at large.

    Eid Mubarak to all :)
