Eid is just around the corner, which means that people have already increased the pace for preparations. With just a week left of Ramadan, the markets are sure to be filled with women with lit up faces, excited children, and men experiencing the epitome of boredom and trailing behind their wives, mothers and sisters along with a dozen shopping bags. The race to look the best and prepare the best feast has surely been initiated in families. Here are the Six things to do in just days before Eid.
The month of Ramadan is all about sharing Allah’s blessings and bounties with people. It is a test of patience, humility, nerves, and spirituality. The entire concept is to remember Allah for the blessings and become better human beings. Muslims are enthusiastic to invite their kin for iftaar parties and serve a feast. Everyone waits for such invitations and in the last few days of Ramadan, the parties tend to increase. Friends, extended family, and officials are invited so that no one feels bad about being left out.
Shop ‘Til you Drop
Women and their love for stones and clothes is still a better love story than many cheesy Hollywood movies we see. The passion and commitment is apparent during the final days of Ramadan. The march begins after iftar and continues shop to shop until the time of sehri. They have their children along with them who are just as excited as their mothers and sisters. Perhaps, the only one who considers this a torment is the man of the house who slacks behind all the time and is recipient to sulk and grim expressions for doing so by his wife, mother, and sister till chand raat.
Get Beauty Treatment
It would be unfair to suggest that women are the only ones who wear all the bling on occasions. Over the recent years, men have also heeded the advice of their hair dresser—far too seriously. Women and men are observed to spend hours in salons before Eid so that they look their very best on the day. Everyone is keen to have the acne and pimple free skin and hair with exemplary volume and trimmed just as the likes of Beckham and Jennifer Lawrence.
The plans for the three days of Eid is already set and is subject to minor changes, depending on the political mood of relatives in the realm. Most of the people are usually visiting their relatives or inviting them over while other plan a road trip with their loved ones and decide to enjoy their days off from work. Whatever the plan is, the three days of Eid are promised to be a treat for everyone.
Get New and Shiny Currency
Perhaps, the most awaited element of Eid is EIDI for the children. Parents and relatives of the young ones have to visit the bank in the last days of Eid for the fresh notes. The distribution of EIDI begins right after the Eid prayer and so does the wishes for the festival.
The month of Ramadan is an opportunity for Muslims to repent to Allah and seek forgiveness. The final days of Ramadan comprises the odd nights, which are blessed a thousand times more than other nights and this is the time when one should one turn towards Allah and ask for forgiveness and everything they wish for. This is one of duties that Muslims carry out in final days of Ramadan.
