Selamat Hari Raya, Maaf Zahir Batin

Salam 28th Ramadan,

Another day to go. The final round! Go! Go! Go! Have you completed your 30 juzuk of alQuran? Have you stayed-up at night for munajat ilAllah? One final night .... let's do it.

Tomorrow is Monday, follows by Tuesday, which is 1st Syawal. It's a day when we celebrate the winning of our fight against one nafs. We are able to be patient not only from eating and drinking, but also, we are also more patient with other insan .... and also, the winning of oneself to perform ibadah ilAllah.

Let's celebrate this eid with lots and lots of takbir and tahmid. May our eid will be blessed by Allah. Do not waste all our good effort during Ramadan to be a better Muslim.
Allahu Akbar!
Alhamdulillah!
La ilaha illallah!

Come Tuesday, we will listen many good wishes of 'Selamat Hari Raya, Maaf Zahir & Batin'. And with smiling faces, people will shake each others hand. But lets do it proper:

When you want to shake hands among muslims (mahram), use both hands, look at each others face, prerably look into their eyes, and smile. This will encourage ukhuwwah among us.
Do not turn your face away from your sisters/ brothers whom you are shaking their hands with.

What do we say when we greet each other? Let's for a change, let's all follow the salafussoleh by saying:

Taqabbalallahu minna wa minkum (May Allaah accept it from you and us).”
instead of our usual 'Selamat Hari Raya'.

wallahua'lam.
