My Eid Day!

Rate this Entry
Well today was Eid in Glasgow(It varies by a day or so through the world due to differences between the lunar and solar calenders). For those of you who don't know Eid is the celebration that happens at the end of Ramadan. After my morning prayer I went to visit close friends and family.Although I'm not that religious it was still a good excuse to dress up nice and go eat at a fancy restaurant.

Altogether I had fun today, spending time with my family and talking to relatives etc.

This is me looking swag

    Yeah. Definitely some swagger in that step is warranted.

    Eid Mubarak! We didn't do anything special, but the usual - pulao and a huge pot of samay. We'll probably end up visiting family at a later date though.

    Glad you had a great day!

    Thanks guys, I love wearing traditional clothes( at special occasions) I even wore some to my prom last year.

    @EXiku Khair Mubarek, hope you have fun too!

    Are you sufficiently religious to bother with the whole "not eating" thing? :p

    Swag? Not swag.

    The more appropriate words would be "classy" and "regal".

    @Mike yeah, though I did it to please my parents, not because I thought it would make God happy and by pleasing my parents they will hopefully reward me with the graphics card I want an AMD 6870

    Ah, OK, fair enough. That's a pretty sensible attitude to it, really :p

    I lived with a Muslim once who sort-of followed it (as in he'd avoid eating if he didn't feel particularly hungry...). He drank alcohol but didn't eat pork.

    I mean, I do that sort of thing with Christian festivals (I'll happily eat pancakes on Pancake day and Easter eggs at Easter, but there's no way in hell I'm going to give anything up for lent), and I doubt that Islam is particularly different in that respect (although I guess you have fewer open athiests/agnostics who still follow some of the traditions, since it's not part of the culture here in the same way as Christianity is).

    That's the same way I feel, I like celebrating the special occasions, and ocasionaly pray, but once I move out Im probably never gonna fast lol.

    Your right on about the open agnostic/atheist, usually you do find family that arn't that religious but even then if a member out right stated that he didn't believe in God, or in my case didn't believe in God exactly as written in the Quran, then it would most likely cause a big rift between them.

    My big brother actually went out and said he doesn't beileve in God, my parents were pretty upset for a while, but in the end I think they accepted it (he had moved out so not like they had a choice).

    Yeah, fair enough.

    I mean, parties are fun, so why wouldn't you celebrate festivals like Eid?
