This blog is published for the sake of Allah subhanahu wa ta'ala and the thousands of Muslims raised or reverts, or even non-Muslis, who might be living in areas where they are not able to experience Ramadan in a Muslim community; so we, at MWA, invite you to be a part of our community in Ramadan.

The month of Ramadan in which was revealed the Qur'an, a guidance for mankind and clear proofs for the guidance and the criterion (between right and wrong) Al-Baqarah 2:185

MWA's Saba N Taylor shares an Eid Poem

It was the night before Eid and all was well, 
until there came a knock on the door and a ring of the bell.  

Who could it be at this time of night, but no one could tell. 
It was an old man with tattered clothes. 

A stranger, he had no food or family and no home to go.
"As Salaamu Alaikum, Can you help me?" he asked 
"Some food, a blanket or maybe an old coat?" 

Father opened the door wide, 
"Wa Alaikum As Salaam. Ahlan wa Sahlan. Please come inside."  

Mother entered the kitchen and it wasn't long, 
till she returned with some bread and hot soup to warm the bone. 

With a prayer of thanks on his lips and a fluffed pillow under his head, 
the stranger laid warm and cozy in a bed.

So always remember dear little Muslims (and big ones too)
Eid is not just about receiving money, gifts, candy or even new shoes. 

It is giving and sharing our hearts and homes with family,
friends and the stranger in need. 
The best Eid gift is the gift of compassion, kindness, and mercy indeed.

Eid Mubarik!!!!
