Sadaqatul Fitr

This is a compulsory charity that is discharged on the occasion of Eid-ul-Fitr to the needy so they may also experience a happy Eid. The Fitrah should be discharged in advance to make it easy for recipients. Nabi (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) said: "The fast remains suspended between Heaven and Earth until the Fitrah is paid." (Targheeb)

Ibn Abbas (R) says that Nabi (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) instituted the charity of Fitr as a means of purification from useless talks and vile speech and also as a means of relief and food for the poor. (Abu Dawood)

The Night of Eid

Known as the Night of Reward and Prize-Giving Nabi (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) has stated: “Whoever stands up (in worship) in the nights preceding the two Eids, yearning for reward from Allah, his heart will not die on the day when all hearts will die.” (Ibn Majah)

Greeting on Eid day

Jubayr ibn Nufayr (R) said: “When the Sahabah (R) met on the day of Eid, they would say to each other, 'Taqabbalallahu minna wa minkum (May Allah Ta’ala accept from you and us).” (Fathul Bari )

What to do on Eid Day

Spend the day remembering Allah, visiting family, the poor, needy, orphans, elderly and sick. Adopt humility and ensure that no laws of Shariah are compromised on this day. Remember the less fortunate and the Muslim Ummah undergoing difficulty in different parts of the world.

Six fasts of Shawwal

Hazrat Abu Ayoob Ansari (R) reports that Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) said: “Whoever observes the fasts of Ramadan and follows it up with keeping six fasts in Shawwal, then (he will get the reward) as though he fasted the entire year.” (Muslim)
