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) |

Leafy Beauty…(Onam Day 9)

Why do we celebrate Onam during Chingam (ചിങ്ങം)? 

(Chingam is the first month of Malayalam Calendar or Kollavarsham.  It comes during August-September months.  Chingam 1 is considered as new year in Kerala.)

It is believed that the King Mahabali visits Kerala every year to see his people.  It was like heaven and people were very happy when he ruled this land. Hence when he visits once a year,  he wants to see his people in merry and his land prosperous.  Chingam is usually the harvest time in Kerala and people will be happier during that.  So Onam is also considered as harvest festival. 

Today is Onam Day 9 and also Bakrid! Eid Mubarak!
