An Eid greeting from MuslimMatters.org to all our readers

All praise is for Allah,  the One Who sent a strong wind that turned out the lights of my home.

That I might see in how much darkness I had been living.
The One Who opened the doors of my relatives homes for me and for my parents.

That I might feel the coldness which aloofness and privacy had gathered about me.

The One Who made me dependent on others. That I might know how dependent I am on Him.
The One Who has always been there.

That I might turn towards Him, find Him Greater,
and perceive a little better the sweetness of being a slave of the Lord.

As surely as I draw breath now, I will cease to do so at the exact instant He alone has Decreed.

And that moment will not be advanced nor delayed by any power of man.

Yet for Him the resurrection of His Creation will be easier than flicking a switch,
as trivial as uttering a Command.

Then, indeed, He alone will grant light.
And who would prefer darkness except one whose heart has never known light?

May Eid find you blessed with light. Ameen.

Eid-ul-Fitr 9/30/2008.
