EID MUBARAK By AbdulKadir Hassana

Written by Editor

Eid Mubarak!
We say to ourselves
Eid Mubarak! Eid Mubarak!
The smell of the green grass from the prayer ground
The atmosphere, cloudy but fine
The showers from the rain, I presume a blessing in disguise
The sisters slaying in their jilbabs, hijabs and abayas
With footwears from heels to flats
The brothers slaying with fine hair cuts and clothings
Mothers and daughters with matching outfits
Fathers and sons with matching outfits
Lo! The verses recited from the holy Quran on this day
Amazing and beautiful
The smiles and laughter from all around
The cries and laughter of babies on their mother’s backs
Parents embracing one another
Brothers embracing one another
Sisters embracing one another
Mmmm!! The taste of the delicious food
Really puts you in a good mood
Eid is always a blessing
Filled with joy and blessings I must say

Eid Mubarak! Eid Mubarak
Taqabbalu-llāhu minnā wa minkum
