There isn’t any single way to celebrate Eid and it also depends where you find comfort and happiness. Besides if you are living in a multi cultural society ,it is a good learning experience to learn from other communities regarding how they celebrate their religious festivals .
If one is coming from so called Muslim country or are from typical Muslim environment then majority still are reeling from the colonial mindset. They don’t mingle with the locals, and doesn’t feel comfortable in sharing their time and food with them.
Depending upon one’s circumstances, in my opinion, Eid is one of the best opportunity to come out from the familiar environment and share your time with others.Be it a small gathering ŵith people who have disability, or assist people with special diet specially those who have diabetes.
One of the easiest and immense pleasure await their way if they took on the responsibility to at least take care of diabetic patients who are depressed and are destitute and are stuck in either shelter or living in isolation in subsidised housing. Just a pep talk and a better meal might save some one’s limb from being amputated because of his diaease.
The entire month of Saum along with Eid should conclude with the words “ Thankyou” coming out from another human, or community or institute , or even from a head of the State ,if the whole Muslim population is involved.For being helpful in their welfare in whatever capacity it was done.
This contribution of one ordinary human for another strange fellow for no other reason other than that he/ she loves to do just because humans are supposed to help others is itself a gratitude for the blessings and capacity and opportunity given by Almighty and one feels that he has found a hand over his head, under which the world opens up to him. From there on he doesn’t feel that a tag or label of community is necessary for his identification.
