Eid Mubarak!

Shawwal Hilal appeared!

Divine Ramadan month commemorated the first revelation, through a month long divine fasting and ‘giving’ (zakat). It is completed.

[First revelation of Quran to Prophet Muhammad by archangel Gabriel in 610AD at Hira Cave near Makkah.]. 

Now it is the time for celebration!

Let us celebrate Eid al-Fitr (“feast of breaking of the fast”)…

Eid Mubarak, dear friends!

Get-together, Sharing and Happiness around.

Let it spread across the world, beyond the borders of religion, color and places!

Do you know? The first day of Shawwal (or day of Eid al-fitr), is the only day in Shawwal, Muslims are *not* allowed to fast!  

So, no human should go hungry without food today! Let us do our bit for it as a positive gesture along with wishing and celebrating Eid al-fitr!

Keep Smiling, Keep Shining and Stay Blessed! 🙂 


Notes: | Shawwal : tenth month of the lunar Islamic calendar | Hilal : Indicates the crescent moon, which signifies the start of a Lunar Month | Eid al-Fitr: celebrated at the beginning of Shawwal month, and completion of the divine month of Ramadan | Eid Mubarak : Wishing a Blessed Celebration (Eid=Celebration, Mubarak=Blessed) | Zakat : Charity, sharing to poor/needy. | Five Pillars of Islam: Shahada-Faith, Salat-Prayer, Zakat-Charity, Sawn-Fasting, Hajj-Pilgrimage to Mecca (some changes between Sunni Islam and Shia Islam) |

A Divine Message… 

My Dear Friends,

In India, a small southern state known as Kerala celebrates a festival called Vishu today.  It is a kind of new year for Hindu friends in the state. Incidently, it is also Good Friday today.  So all the Christian friends are in prayers, recollecting a great sacrifice….

What a divine day today…. (14th April, 2017).

One side, it makes a mark on new start with all happiness, the other side it shows a divine  sacrifice to end sins of the world. However, in two days, it turns to be the happiest day of Easter for Christian friends.

A great message from God…. 

“Joy and Sorrow are just two shades of life. In reality they are the same and volatile. It’s all from within…I am within you when you feel happy and sad.. always. Be positive and accept the reality of life. You are all blessed and you all come from the same seed, irrespective of your color, cast and country.” 

Keep Smiling and Keep Shining….

Thiruvonam: Spreading Lights of Happiness…

First of all, Wish you all a very Happy Onam again….

thiruvonam

Onam is a festival of lights? Perplexed? I would say, Onam is a festival that spreads lights of Happiness. All through out 10 days of Onam, people, irrespective of color, religion, wealth, all try to be happy! I am not sure, is there any other festival in the world “forces” people to be happy from the core theme of the festival.

Onam, the whole theme of the festival is being happy and that’s what the festival is for! That’s why in Kerala, there is a saying “Kaanam Vittum Onam Unnanam” and be happy for it! (It means that “One must have the Onam lunch even selling his property, to have so”  and be happy that you could do it!)

Today is Onam Day 11  and is Thiruvonam!

Serenity of Onam & Bakrid…(Onam Day 10!)

onamday10

Look at any pookkalam(floral decoration) for a while…you can feel the serenity of Onam. Onam days shower peace and happiness to the nature and minds. Every celebration is an occasion where we try to make others happy, along with that, we become happy(actually happier!). So, we can celebrate together only, not alone! Once we can cherish the moments of smiles and sharing, the celebration becomes meaningful. Those moments start bringing a feel of serenity and cares your mind…

Today is Onam Day 10! So, thiruvonam today?
