Eid Greeting for IslamicSolutions.Com

God Bless All!
Eid Greeting from Dr. Pasha

 Eidul Fitr 1431/Ramadan 2010

Dr. Pasha

(Bringing Islam to the World One Concept at a Time!
Taking the Qur’an to Every Home and Heart that Needs It --
And which One Does Not?)

 

I wish all of you – our visitors and readers and the whole world – the blessings of the month of Ramadan 1431/2010. And I do that with all sincerity and fervor.

And I wish all of you – our visitors and readers and the whole world – the blessings of this Lailatul Qadr 1431/2010: the one night that is better than 1000 months.

And I wish all of you – our visitors and readers and the whole world – the joy and the blessings of this Eidul Fitr 1431/2010.

I ask not if you are Muslim or non-Muslim.

Nor do I ask if you are man, woman or child.

Nor do I wish to inquire from what nationality, race, region or ethnicity you are.

And I have no desire to know your politics, or your personal views on any topic, or your ideology or any other identifying marker or distinguishing feature you may possess.

I take you the way you are and the way you come: A Human Being – pure and simple.

One of God’s children, as they say.

And I ask God Almighty:

The one and only;

God of the Old Testament;

God of the New Testament;

God of the Bible, the compendium that Jews and Christians attribute to the prophets;

God of the Torah, the book that he gave to Moses (Alaihis Salaam);

God of the Injeel as he calls the book he gave to Jesus (Alaihis Salaam);

God of all divine books in all cultures and languages;

God of Abraham, Moses, Ishmael, Isaac, David, Solomon and Jesus and of all prophets and messengers (Alaihimus Salaam) in all cultures and places;

God of the Qur’an and Muhammad, Sallallahu Alaihi wa Sallam;

God who is the owner of all beautiful names and qualities and attributes;

God whose dominant attribute in the Qur’an is love and grace and mercy;

God who loves to forgive our sins and transgressions more than we love to commit them;

Your God and mine and the God of everyone and everything;

And the God of all the worlds as he calls them, using the plural in the Qur’an: Rabbul ‘Aalameen;

Your maker and mine;

Your owner and mine;

Your master and mine:

And your keeper and mine;

I ask him,

To shower upon you, me and our families, friends, neighbors and his entire world his blessings and mercy and grace;

And in particular the most glorious and abundant blessings of this month of Ramadan that is departing;

And this Lailatul Qadr that has just passed;

And this Eidul Fitr that is upon us.

I am going to him and saying:

These are your people;

This is your flock;

This is your household;

You made them with your two hands, you say in the Qur’an;

You honored and exalted them, you declare in the Qur’an;

How proudly – and all pride and glory and majesty are yours by right – you call out to them saying: Yaa ‘Ibaadee, my slaves;

And they are in trouble;

La Fi Khusr – as you said it yourself;

Their life is a mess;

And they have made a mess of their world, just as the angels said they would;

They are sick and ailing and hurting;

And they are bent on inflicting pain and harm and evil upon each other;

And they are bent on visiting death and destruction upon each other and upon your earth;

And they are victims of floods;

And wars;

And ravages of all kinds;

And famines;

And earthquakes;

And disasters;

And diseases and ailments of the most terrible kind;

They need your love more than ever before;

Not that your love was ever lacking;

Because it is your love that runs this world and always has;

And they need your grace;

And your mercy;

And your Rahmat;

And your Maghfirat;

And your Salaam;

And, above all, your guidance and help;

Your Hidaayat;

More than they ever did;

And more urgently now than ever before;

They are so foolish they don’t even know how to ask;

They are so rude they often won’t even say Thank You;

But you don’t need their good behavior or politeness;

And you don’t need their gratefulness or thanks;

You are above that, Almighty Lord;

And you are above everything;

Ta’alaita wa Tabaarakta Yaa Dhal Jalaali Wal-Ikraam!

Adam, their very fallible father, did not know how to ask for your forgiveness and you taught him how – and then you forgave him;

Was it not you who called out in the Qur’an: “Sinners of the world, despair not of God’s Mercy, for, God forgives all sins. For, that is what he loves to do!”

That surely was you, for, that is your word in the Qur’an.

And Qur’an is your immortal and eternal word;

Which you sent down to us to confirm the earlier Scripture;

And to validate it;

And to stand guard over it;

For all time;

And in all places;

Was that not your call that reverberates in the heavens and earth and bounces off every atom and sub-atom in all the worlds that you made and that you rule without any help, association or partnership from anyone?

A call that only humans seem not to know or hear – because Muslims won’t tell and non-Muslims won’t ask.

And as a result of this Grand Conspiracy by the Devil against the children of Adam that message remains hidden from humanity;

And your most glorious book, the Qur’an, remains a stranger;

Not only to non-Muslims;

But also quite likely to most Muslims;

So, Ladies & Gentlemen, our visitors, readers and the whole world:

While I ask your God to forgive you and yours, and me and mine;

And to shower upon you and yours, and me and mine;

His most glorious blessings of this month of Ramadan;

And of this Lailatul Qadr;

And of this Eidul Fitr;

I also ask you, at the same time, not to forget those of your brothers and sisters – for, that is who they are: your blood brothers and sisters from your common human ancestry in Adam – who are victims of floods and earthquakes and other natural disasters everywhere;

And victims of the ravages of what we so glibly call “wars”;

For, they do not control the natural disasters of which they are victim;

And these so-called “wars” are often imposed upon them;

Often without their knowledge and against their will;

And these so-called “wars” are often what the ruthless, the greedy and the over-ambitious among us unleash on the rest of us;

Wrapped in deceptive double-talk and supported by lies and half-truths;

And by wicked manipulation and evil propaganda;

That boggle the mind;

And leave the human spirit reeling;

We even shamelessly confess to our common guilt of how we let Truth be the first casualty of war;

Maybe because that would make it so much easier for us;

To kill, burn and butcher without accountability or shame;

And without remorse or responsibility;

So, even as I ask God to bless and forgive and guide and help us;

I ask you, Ladies & Gentlemen, no matter who you are, and no matter what your background is, and no matter where you come from, to do all you can to help those in need, wherever they may be;

And I ask you, no matter who you are, and no matter what your background is, and no matter where you come from, to do all you can to stop the killings, and the burnings and the butchering, wherever those may be;

For, that is the key that your God placed in our hands to unlock the doors to our salvation;

And to our immediate forgiveness and eternal felicity:

“You show mercy and compassion to those on Earth Below, the one in Heaven Above will show mercy and compassion to you.”

That is the eternal and immutable law by which your God rules his worlds.

That is the formula that is summarized in the commandment, common to all, that says: Take no God besides God;

And in the commandment, also common to all, that says: Love your God with all your might;

And in yet another commandment, again known to all and shared by all, that says: Love your fellow humans the way you love yourself.

May God Bless Us All!

May God Guide Us All!

May God Forgive Us All!

And I end my supplication with a paraphrase of the words Jesus, Son of Mary, Alaihis Salaam, Prophet and Messenger of God, is quoted in the Qur’an as saying to God Almighty: “Lord, if you choose to punish them, they surely are your slaves; they have nowhere to run but to you; but if you were to forgive them, you surely have the power and the wisdom to do it!”

Rabbighfir Warham wa Anta Khairur Raahimeen!

Aameen, Yaa Rabbal ‘Aalameen!

END
