Eid Mubarak

Eid is a day made by Allah to mark a special event and a blessed event. It is a day in which Muslims around the world gather to perform the sacred and religious sacrifice in the blessed land. This is another day from the days of Hajj which denotes the Sacrifice made by Ibrahim عليه اسلام.

Allah states:

لَن يَنَالَ اللَّهَ لُحُومُهَا وَلَا دِمَاؤُهَا وَلَكِن يَنَالُهُ التَّقْوَى مِنكُمْ كَذَلِكَ سَخَّرَهَا لَكُمْ لِتُكَبِّرُوا اللَّهَ عَلَى مَا هَدَاكُمْ وَبَشِّرِ الْمُحْسِنِينَ

"Their flesh and their blood reach not Allah, but the devotion/piety from you reaches Him. Thus have we made them subject to you that you may magnify Allah that He has guided you..."

[Surah al-Hajj - 22:37]


This is the day where, although we enjoy ourselves, we should remember the sacrifice that Hadhrat Ibrahim عليه اسلام made for the sake and pleasure of Allah Ta'ala. It is a day within which many pilgrims have sacrificed their desires, comfort and families to complete one of the pillars of Islam whilst bearing hardship to seek the pleasure of Allah and acquiring closeness to Him.

May Allah allow us to enjoy this day in its true meaning whilst giving us the understanding to realise that this day is about sacrifice for the sake of Allah and not following one's desires to displease Allah. Aameen.

Eid Mubarak to all the readers.

Salaamu aleykum warahmatulaah... B-lated Eid mubarak insha'allah

A quick question...Has the Simply Islam blog been shut down, it's been impossible for me to view it for a while now :(

Jazaak allaah khair and keep up the good work

As Salaamu Alaykum,


I had a look at the links that you provided. As far as the wordings for the Nasheed are concerned, I heard the majority of it and I believe that the Nasheed does not contain any wordings or messages that are contrary to our belief. If I have missed out anything that you feel in doubt about then please do ask me and I will clarify it, Insha Allah.


Jazakallah brother Ihsaan for dropping by; the Simply Islam blog is still up and running and it may be that it is just taking a while to load. However, I experienced no loading problems with the blog. Please do let me know if you have any problems accessing the site.

Salamu Alaikum,

I just stumbled upon your blog, mashaAllah amazing work you've got there :)

Please take a moment to visit my new very-modest blog Introducing Islam.
If you like the content, I would really appreciate if you left a comment about what you think of the content, style, etc...
maybe if you liked it you can point that out in your site (maybe a little link on the side bar?!)

p.s: I have already added your site to my blog

Jazaak Allahu Khayran.
