In the Name of ‘Love’…

Beliefs & Practices, In the Name of Love / Monday, February 8th, 2010

Allah SWT has revealed Islam as a complete and perfect religion. Thus accordingly, it has its own unique traditions as well as its very own celebrations. Islam’s festivals are so sublime and fulfilling that not only do they consider human temperament but also assure a Muslim’s advancement in the Afterlife. If they are a means to derive pleasure, these festivals also pave ways for us to gather happiness in the Hereafter.

We have Eid-ul-Fitr, Eid-ul-Adha, in which it is not only allowed to wear good clothes but rather it has been recommended to do so, as a part of our Deen. To eat good is encouraged, to have fun is desirable, but with all that it is also expected that we prostrate in front of our Lord, to thank Him, so as we rejoice today in this world, in the next too we be blessed with all possible pleasures. Eat well here, wear good here but also present oneself in Allah’s Palace for a while, invoking Him by Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar. Hence we derive bliss here, as well as in the eternal life to come.
