Eid greetings to all, especially those who didn’t get my email or SMS. After 30 days of Ramadan fasting, as well as some controversy, Eid is finally being celebrated here in Pakistan.
It seems that we were correct all along about the dates and those few who followed their own dates are being chastized for going against the religion as well as national unity. I hope this doesn’t happen again.
The night before Eid is a happening one with people rushing to do last minute shopping and out to enjoy and celebrate. I was in the Jinnah Super market quite a bit after midnight, yet it was more crowded than even peak times in ordinary days. It’s a pity the police forced most of the shops to close down by around 1:30am. I don’t see why they did that.
Anyway, as usually happens, I got home pretty late and haven’t had time to sleep. The Eid prayer in the morning will be difficult and I just hope I don’t fall asleep in the midst of it. Enjoy the occasion and may you receive Allah’s blessings and love and may your prayers be accepted.
