Eid Mubarak, 1438!

Al-Hamdulillah, God blessed us with the opportunity to experience another Ramadan. This was a really special year and its memories will last a lifetime. I would also like to express my thanks, on behalf of Middle Ground, to the LA Times’ Frank Shyong for the nice write up on Eid. Also thanks to Ifran Khan for the great photos:

كل عام وأنتم بخير وعيدكم سعيد

“May every year find you well and may you have a blessed Eid.”

The Virtues of Shawwal

For those who seek an immense reward, let us be reminded of the Six Days of Shawwāl.

من صام رمضان ثم أتبعه بست من شوال كان كصيام الدهر

“The one who fasts Ramadan and then follows that with six days in Shawwāl, it’s as if one fasts in perpitude.”Abu Ayyub, recorded in Sahih Muslim, 9/#1254
