This is my family photo on the first day of Eid 2012 in our traditional Malay outfit. It is a culture in Malaysia for family members to gather at parents’s house on the first day of Eid. We dressed in our best traditional outfit, a lot of traditional food is served, and the children will receive some money from adults in cute little envelopes as part of the tradition…it’s a beautiful family time.

Several days before Eid I started making cookies and different sweets. The day before Eid, I made sheep cake pops for an Eid party I was going to. They were a hit! BY Sanaid
After prayer, a Muslim family poses for the camera in Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque.
This year I came across the hadith: “Exchange gifts. This will generate mutual feelings of love and eliminate feelings of animosity and estrangement from your hearts.” [Mishkat]
Until lately I believed gift giving was an exclusively Christian practice. In honor of putting this hadith into practice, I gave my aunt a silk abaya, a fake gold hand harness jewelry and a tasbih. She is an impatient type A-personality, however, not only did she patiently sit through a session of getting her finger nails tinted with henna she also acted as a hand model for this picture, whilst showing off her eid gifts.

An Egyptian girl plays with her father after Eid prayer at the Grand Mosque in Doha,Qatar. I took this as soon as I heard the girl crying out “EID MUBARAK” to her dad!!
Every Eid all girls head to henna shops or their families/friends houses to get their henna done its a tradition shared by many people across the globe. This picture, of my hand which I took in negative is a picture of henna a got done. Henna is familiar to even non-Muslims. It’s a great work of art that bridges cultures together!:) By fbkassim

This is my first time away from home. Al-hamdu lillah, my new home allows me to spend everyday reflecting upon some aspect of the beauty of Allah’s creation. I’m living in Honolulu, Hawaii. This place is absolutely beautiful. The people are beautiful; their character can’t help but remind you of an aspect of the sunnah everyday!
I was fortunate to spend ‘Eed with these beautiful, welcoming, generous people. My new community (1000 people msA!) prayed Salat’l-‘Eed under a pavilion off of Ala Moana Beach. There was a rainbow after the fajr rain showers (which is just happiness!); sand to remind us of our transient nature and showing how Allah can take something living and make it something else; a light mist to symbolize the mercy of Allah descending; and the Pacific ocean to show the vastness of the blessings of Allah. Reciting the takbirat (i.e. glorifying Allah) was so natural in these surroundings. ‘Eed is about glorifying Allah and that’s what this moment was like for me. I wonder if you feel the same way.
I hope you will come visit our community and share these reflections.
