Eid Mubarak (1442H) & Selamat Hari Raya ‘Aidil Fitri (2022), Everyone


‘Eid Mubarak & Selamat Hari Raya ‘Aidil Fitri, everyone


This year’s ‘Eid is full of drama.

Alhamdulillah, ya Allah 💖

From the initial shock when 2 of our 3 bags did not arrive at our destination airport and all our ‘Eid Clothing are in those bags to the announcement that Raya falls on Monday.

What a roller coaster.

All those didn't break me.

What broke me was minutes after the Raya announcement, it hit me.

Ramadan is gone. Disappeared before my very eyes.

I started to cry.

I felt that Ramadan was ‘snatched’ away from me all too suddenly.

I had so much plans for the last day of Ramadan. I have plans for its last night. I have laid out what I wanted to do that night. What I want to recite. What I want to ask from Allah. What time I want to sleep and wake up. What zikir I want to make. What prayers I want to do..

Ya Allah

And just like that, my plans fall apart.

I was heart broken 💔️‍🩹

Really crushed 😭

As I cried, my husband came to my rescue. He gently reminded me one by one what I did the whole day that day..

… All those counts for good deeds, Adik.., he gently said to me while hugging me as I sobbed away thinking how I wasted my day on the last day of Ramadan..

Slowly.. very slowly… I began reflecting and begged Allah’s Forgiveness and Mercy for my carelessness.

I learn my lesson.

An important life lesson.

That this is what life is about.

We plan and we plan. And we always think that we will have tomorrow.


That Allah also plans and His Plan is the one that will come thru. And His Plan is always the Best of Plan.

And we are not, and never promised of our tomorrow.

We are not even promised that we have the next few seconds.

So do what we want to do today.

Yes today. Now, today.

Not tomorrow.

Thank you Allah for this great lesson. Alhamdulillah

I understood in a deeper level now what this means.

Alhamdulillah for this great lesson ya Allah! 💝

So with heavy heart and still teary, I said my goodbyes to my beloved Ramadan in hope to meet it again next year inshaAllah..

and I welcome my Syawal reciting Takbir Raya as a sign of joy, happiness and gratefulness for the nikmat of Ramadan that Allah has given me..


I would like to wish everyone once again a truly joyous celebration 💖

‘Eid Mubarak & Selamat Hari Raya ‘Aidil Fitri’

‘Taqabballa ‘llahu Minna wa Minkum Salih Al A'amaal—

May Allah accept from you and us, our good deeds.’”

Aamiin ya Rabb 💖
