It’s hard to believe that Eid is right around the corner. After almost a month of fasting, I feel blessed to have made it this far. I think we all get caught up in life and start to lose sight of what is important at times. Ramadan is a great time for us to reflect, establish better character and reconnect with our creator. There are only benefits!
For my non-Muslim friends out there, Ramadan is a month where Muslims abstain from food, drink, sexual relations and bad behavior in an effort to become closer to God and refocus our priorities. We spend the month increasing our worship and charitable actions. Eid signifies the end of our fast – one of the biggest celebrations of the year. We are grateful to live to see another year where we have the chance to increase our worship.
I think one of the most exciting things about Eid is picking out what to wear. There aren’t a lot of events where we can really dress up, but Eid is the perfect time to bust out your favorite outfit to celebrate! It is sunnah (tradition of the Prophet Mohammed ﷺ) to dress in clean and nice clothes, so we should treat ourselves and take advantage of this easy task. Plus, it’s really nice seeing everyone coming together dressed to the nines. The atmosphere is so happy and bright.
There are so many stylish brands geared towards Muslim women now that the choices and styles are limitless. I follow so many designers on Facebook and I’m constantly amazed at the beautiful designs that they come up with. It was really hard, but I narrowed my top choices for this Eid 2013 to just six dresses. It was sooo hard you guys!
While it’s nice to dress up and celebrate, we shouldn’t forget our spiritual goals until our next Ramadan. I hope we all benefit this upcoming year!
Q: What do you think of my dress choices for this upcoming Eid?
