As we wear new clothes and go to the prayer place of Eid …

As we go to meet our dear ones …

As we exchange congratulations and good wishes …

As we have delicious sweets …

As we give our children Eid gifts …

As we grin from ear to ear …

As we feel overjoyed on this day … We should remember:

That Allah’s favor on us requires continuous gratitude in order to last, for Allah Almighty says: “And (remember) when your Lord proclaimed: If you give thanks, I will give you more; but if you are thankless, My punishment is severe.” (14:7).

That it is our duty to be moderate in everything, for Allah has prohibited us from wastefulness in his Noble Book saying: “O Children of Adam! Take your adornment while praying, and eat and drink, but waste not by extravagance, certainly He likes not Al-Musrifun.” (7:31).

That millions of our Muslim brothers and sisters in different areas of the earth are deprived of the graces we enjoy.

That there are millions of Muslim or phans who do not find enough food, drink, or clothes.

The distressed, grieving widows.

The Muslim mujahideen who anticipate their reward from Allah.

The captives in the prisons of our enemies in occupied territories.

The defenders of Muslim lands in Palestine, Iraq , Afghanistan and Chechnya .

The banner of Jihad, which needs those who will raise it, Allah willing.

Our duties to our Lord Almighty that we must support this religion and elevate the banner of Islam.

The aim for which we we re created by Allah Almighty, Who says: “And I created not the jinn and mankind except that they should worship Me [Alone].” (51:56).

The effective weapon the Lord Almighty granted us, with which we can shield ourselves day and night, the weapon of supplication. (Ghafir 40:60).

That it is our duty to support our religion and our Muslim brothers and sisters as much as we can at every time and every place.

That our enemies spare no effort to support their causes, and that we must exert more efforts in supporting our causes.
