Apart from the sweet messages I receive and the good vibes from the adhani, takbirah and beautiful melodies of eid,my day is usually as long, especially when people come together on the eid day. Last eid, eidul-fitr Was The first eid we ever spent without her, grandma, and we are not yet used to being without her. AlhamduliLlah we all are strong for her but it reaches a point where we remember her in everything. The responsibilities that a mother of the house carries, the things that everything is used to being done by only her leave a very big gap. On days where people come together she is the only one who used to supervise the serving of food and arrangement of the whole eating process. We thought it was a small job it made my aunty cry. She started sobbing on a lower tone then slowly rising up her voice. Every other person in the kitchen followed suit. She was the main organiser in everything and no one ever tried to step in and help. That day I couldn’t join everyone in crying but instead I had to be strong for her. I bowed down and prayed for her.
“Dear grandma, I am smiling today because everybody else is crying. I am the only one to console them because I am the only one who makes them cry. They look at me, smile then she’d tears. I am the only one who bears your name to date. They call me with respect, with love and tenderness. I am strong for you today. It is eid, the day everybody comes together and I am the centre of attraction. It is my first ever eid spent without you around. People are coming in in groups, with smiles, they see me they start crying. After some minutes they all cheer up. Another group comes in, does the same and I am now forced to smile. I smile for you because I feel loved. Because of you. I will always pray for you Bibi. I will always smile”
It is coming again and I am feeling my heart as heavy as it was on eidul-fitr. I have a lot to be thankful for and most of all my life. May Allah heal all the sick, forgive all the wrong doers and answer everyone’s prayer. Ameen. Eid Mubarak to you too.

    I’m impressed, I must say. Rarely do I come across a blog that’s equally educative and engaging, and let me tell you,
    you’ve hit the nail on the head. The problem is something which too
    few folks are speaking intelligently about. I’m very happy that I stumbled across this in my search for something regarding this.
