so.. this year. we celebrated our Eid Adha in KL for the second time.
our first was back in 2010.
which when me and my twins, Aishah.. we had our SPM on that year.
Eid Adha gap was a week before our exam.. so my parents decided to celebrate here.
this year.. almost the same reason. but it wasn't about exam..
it was because of Aishah arrived here on Thursday night.
and Eid Adha is on the next day.
my parents said they dont wanna rush and Aishah just arrived here and we need to go to Penang later.
that is exhausting. thats why my parents decided to celebrate our Eid here.
Nevertheless, we had a superb and awesome celebration here.. :)
eventho maktok, pak ngah's and pak lang's fam were not here. :/
so.. here are ze few picturess.
Friday (October 28th) is the first day of the month known as Dhul-Hijjah. Our hearts and prayers are with those undertaking the difficult pilgrimage during these days. For those of us who are not performing the Hajj, there are still many ways to make the most of this blessed time!
How many times have we heard Surat Al-Fajr recited, be it in our homes, while memorizing, or in the mosque? As a shorter surah, it may be a frequent part of our prayers, but taking the time to reflect on even a part of the first verse reveals a treasure of meaning. In the first two ayahs (verses) of Surat Al-Fajr, Allah says:
“By the dawn; And [by] the ten nights.” (89:1-2)
According to scholars of the Qur’an, the days mentioned as significant enough for Allah to swear by them are the first ten days of Dhul-Hijjah.
Describing how these ten days are among the best, the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said: “There are no days on which righteous deeds are more beloved to Allah than these ten days.” They said: “Not even jihad for the sake of Allah?” He said: “Not even jihad for the sake of Allah, unless a man goes out himself for jihad taking his wealth with him and does not come back with anything.”
The Prophet (peace be upon him) also said: “There is no deed that is better before Allah or more greatly rewarded than a good deed done in the (first) ten days of al-Adha.” He was asked: “Not even jihad for the sake of Allah?” He said: “Not evenjihad for the sake of Allah, unless a man goes out himself for jihad taking his wealth with him and does not come back with anything.”
Thus, the ten days are better than all other days of the year, with no exception, even the last ten days of Ramadan. (The last ten nights of Ramadan, however, are understood to be better than the nights of Dhul-Hijjah, because they include Laylat al-Qadr (the night of power), which is better than a thousand months. (Qur’an 97:3)
Therefore, whoever is not able to go to Hajj should use this blessed time to complete even more righteous deeds than usual. These can include anything such as giving charity, honouring one’s parents, upholding the ties of kinship, and enjoining what is good and forbidding what is evil. Fasting and remembrance are particularly recommended:
Happy Eid Adha from me :) xx
