Spirit of Eid
Spirit of Eid
Eid-ul-Fitr or 'Meethi Eid' as it is called in India is celebrated after completion of holy month of fasting i.e Ramzaan. This festival Eid is not just about celebration but about sharing happiness. The privileged Muslims are obliged to give 'Zakaat' (2.5% amount from total earnings which is given to poor and needy) and 'Fitra' (amount equal to 1.6kg wheat meant for poor and needy) to maintain the balance in society and need to take care that people around us should be happy. But this year Ramzaan became violent with deaths of innocents in terrorist attacks of Istanabul, Baghdad,Dhaka,Orlando and recently in Qatif and Madina of Saudi Arabia. Most died in these attacks are fasting Muslims which make it clear that terror sees no religion, neither it has any religion. Here I am sharing a poem emphasizing on real Spirit of Eid. May Eid brings happiness and peace to the world. Happy Eid.
A Ramzaan passed with scars,
of innocent deaths and situation like wars.
War on humanity where Satan ruled,
with veil of religion to us they fooled.
Spirit of Eid is happiness for all,
how it's possible with such humanity's fall.
A just society where happiness and pain are shared,
where each precious life is properly cared.
Your prayers are waste and futile,
If others around you are without a smile.
Spare few moments to remember all those who died,
before laughing wipe tears of all those who have cried.
When you raise your hands for Eid's prayer,
Ask HIM for peace, brotherhood and care.
