Assalaamu Aleikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuhu
Eid-ul-Fitr Mubarak and may Allah Subhanahu-Wa-Ta’ala continue to bless you and yours.It was a cold Winter morning but the warmth of the Masjid reminded us why we had flocked together from the different suburbs of Sydney in our best attire. It was the joyous festival of Eid-ul-Fitr after 30 days of fasting. It was a time to give thanks to the Almighty Allah and express joy and happiness at the completion of a month-long spiritual exercise. Young children were running around in excitement and our respected elders were hugging and congratulating their loved ones. The aroma of the food visited our nostrils.
Brother Ameen Sahu-Khan stood up and started the Takbir which encouraged everybody to join in. Not long after, the Takbir echoed in the Masjid. After a little while, Eid-ul-Fitr prayer commenced. Brother Ameen Sahu-Khan gave the Khutba, reminding us of the significance of Ramadan and how important it is for us to continue with the trend of the Holy month in keeping up with our good deeds.
The Secretary of the Jamaat read out to the congregation Hazrat Ameer’s message. Brother Ameen then concluded the official part of the function with a supplication.
The young and old gave each other big hugs and wished everybody well. The morning finished with fellowship and good food, all thanks to the Merciful and Compassionate Allah.
