To contemplate this EidConcerning humility
(A story of Sultan Bayazid Bastami)


When Bayazid was coming from his bath one morning during the Eid festival, someone unwittingly emptied a tray of ashes from a window upon his head.


With his face and turban al bespattered, he rubbed his hands in gratitude and said, “I am in truth worthy of the fires of hell. Why should I be angered by a few ashes?”


The great do not regard themselves; look not for the godliness in a self-conceited man. Eminence does not consist in outward show and vaunting words, nor dignity in hauteur and pretension.


On the Day of Judgment thou wilt see in Paradise him who sought truth and rejected vain pretension.


He who is headstrong and obdurate falleth headlong; if thou desire greatness, abandon pride.

Eid Mubarak to everyone celebrating around the world! Wishing you and your loved ones peace, joy and prosperity!!!



Eid Mubarak or Blessed Eid (Arabic: عيد مبارك‎‎) is a traditional Muslim greeting reserved for use on the festivals of Eid al-Adha and Eid al-Fitr. Eid means "celebration" and refers to the occasion itself, and Mubarak means "blessed"; for example, performing the Eidprayer.

[Thanks, Vitorio.]


It is difficult to be called a Muslim; if one is truly a Muslim, then he may be called one.
First, let him savor the religion of the Prophet as sweet; then, let his pride of his possessions be scraped away.
Becoming a true Muslim, a disciple of the faith of Mohammed, let him put aside the delusion of death and life.
As he submits to God's Will, and surrenders to the Creator, he is rid of selfishness and conceit.
And when, O Nanak, he is merciful to all beings, only then shall he be called a Muslim. 


 Selamat Hari Raya Idul Fitri!   :flowers:
