Happiness and sadness do connect

How is this possible?

It is at the end of a special month that these two concepts even though contradictory they do meet from time to time. Muslims feel dismayed at the end of Ramadan, the blessed month of mercy for the sense of tranquility and peacefulness lessens and you feel it is slipping away from you as its days go by. It is like a very dear relative or friend that you havenโ€™t seen for a long time and needs to go. Though even at its end you may be unhappy that it needs to go you are happy it came and you celebrate it. This is when happiness cuts it way through Eid. Naturally, Eid is the most joyous for children: going out to play, fireworks, playgrounds, amusement parks, lots and lots of sweets, and ehm some money from parents and relatives ๐Ÿ˜€ No I donโ€™t want to return to childhood (O_O) but they are happy, warm memories that flare up at this time of year. So may Allah SWT accept all your goodย deeds during this month and may we live through various more Ramadans, ameen.

Eib fitr Mubarak!!!

  1. You’re right, ramadhaan went so fast and there’s that sadness in the air, what if we don’t get to see it again?
    May the Almighty accept our fasts and ibadah and continue to shower His countless blessings upon us all.
    May your Eid day be filled with lots of smiles, laughter and money ;]
    Have a good one!

    PS: That looks YUM! ๐Ÿ˜€

But like you said sadness connects with happiness here bec I am really looking forward to Eid for all the things you mentioned in your post. tc hope you have a great Eid too [is it today for you?]
