UPDATE(10) Qatar, UK, US, Pakistan, South Africa | Snapshots: Eid Photos from Around the World

Published


Assalamualaikum Muslims and Muslimahs around the world! May the blessings of Eid lighten up your day! Taqabbal Allahu minna wa minkum! May Allah accept from us and from you, all the deeds we did in Ramadan, for His Sake! Ameen.

One of the beautiful aspects of Islam is the global nature of its rituals and traditions. And even though we may all not have Eid on the same day, the joy that Eid brings transcends borders and nationalities. To make it even more awesome, we have cultural variations in the way that we celebrate the day, the dresses that are worn, special foods made just for Eid and how we meet and greet each other.

This year, the Muslim Matters’ bloggers’ team – which is growing and truly reflecting the diversity in the Ummah – is presenting to you snapshots from Eid, as they see it. We have writers based in many countries, including USA, UK, Egypt, South Africa, Pakistan, Qatar… and here’s how they see Eid, in their respective lands…

    Please change the nice hairstyle comment – it is not suitable to describe something as nice which is forbidden (i don’t know if yuo were being sarcastic but still this is wrong).

    Nafa’ related from Ibn ‘Umar that the Messenger of Allaah prohibited qiza’. Nafa’ asked, “What is qiza’?” He said, “It is to shave off part of the hair of a youth and to leave part.” (Al Bukhari and Muslim)

      Hey! I resent that! I spent a lot of time, money and effort trying to make that cake, especially one tiring evening after work baking two cakes and making dinner at the same time.

      As for the icing, I got a little excited making the writing too big and couldn’t fit the K on the top of the cake, so it ended up on the side, which you can’t see in the pic.

      Nevertheless, the cake went down REALLY well and there’s very little left now :D

    Great pictures! I’m always used to seeing Eid prayers conducted indoors so it’s interesting to see that Eid prayers are starting to be done outside and why not if the weather is nice. :)
