Eid al-Fitrعيد الفطر

Eid al-Fitr

اعتقد انه اول بلوج باللغه العربيه واعتقد انها تستحق ان اكتب هذا البلوج بهذه اللغه مترجم الي الانجليزيه.احتفلت امس الجمعه 9 اغسطس 2013 بعيد الفطر الذي سوف اشرحه لمن لا يعرف ما هو هذا اليوم
عيد الفطر هوأول أعياد المسلمين والذي يحتفل به المسلمون في أول يوم من أيام شهر شوال. وعيد الفطر يأتي بعد صيام شهر رمضان ويكون أول يوم يفطر فيه المسلمون بعد صيام شهر كامل ولذلك سُمي بعيد الفطر هو يوم فرح وسرور. وأفراح المؤمنين في دنياهم وأخراهم إنما هي بفضل مولاهم كما قال الله تعالي : ﴿قُلْ بِفَضْلِ اللَّهِ وَبِرَحْمَتِهِ فَبِذَلِكَ فَلْيَفْرَحُوا هُوَ خَيْرٌ مِمَّا يَجْمَعُونَ﴾
ويتميز عيد الفطر بأنه آخر يوم يمكن  دفع زكاة الفطر الواجبة على المسلمين قبل صلاه العيد. ويؤدّي المسلمون صلاه العيد في الصباح بعد شروق الشمس بثلث ساعة تقريبًا صلاة العيد ويلتقي المسلمون في العيد ويتبادلون التهاني ويزورون أهلهم وأقربائهم، وهذا ما يعرف بصلة الرحم. كما يزور المسلم أصدقاءه ويستقبل أصحابه وجيرانه، ويعطفون على الفقراء.

احتفلت بعيد الفطر لاول مره في حياتي بدون عائلتي أمي , وابي وزوجتي وابنتي الصغيرتان واصدقائي. لقد شعرت مثل كيفين في فيلم وحدي بالمنزل عندما احتفل بعيد الميلاد بدون عائلته. ولكن عزائي الوحيد اني تلقيت التهاني من اصدقائي في العمل وايضا اخذت هدا اليوم عطله رسميه مثل باقي زملائي المسلمين. لقد بدأت يومي بأكل بعض التمرات قبل الذهاب الي المسجد, ولبست الثياب البيضاء بغطاء الراس الابيض وذهبت الي المسجد لاداء صلاه العيد.

هناك ايضا متطوعين في بلاد اخري يشاركوني نفس الشعور والاحساس بهذا اليوم مثل معاذ ابراهيم مصري يعمل في فرع الشركه بالمملكه العربيه السعوديه ويعمل الان في نيجيريا ضمن برنامج مكافحه الملاريا وايضا هناك كريمه من المملكة المغربيه وتعمل الان في السنغال ,وبالتاكيد انه اول عيد فطر  لهم  ايضا يقضونه بعيداً عن الاهل والاصدقاء.ولكن عزائنا الوحيد ان هذه المهمه من اجل اهداف ساميه وهي خدمه الانسانيه مع المنظمات الغير الحكوميه.

في النهايه اود ان اشكر مديرتي د. سحر المنياوي(مديرة اداره الجوده بالقاهره) لمساندتها لي منذ البدايه وايضا مديرتي المباشره د. دعاء العدلي لتشجيعها لي قبل بدء المهمه.ولن انسي اصدقائي في العمل خاصه  أحمد واسلام ومصطفي ومحمد واشرف وايضا زميلتي في برنامج البلص هنا في الهند يولاندو سيزلاند في مساعدتي في هذا البلوج.

Yesterday Friday 9th August I celebrated Eid al Fiter day. which I’ll explain to persons who may not know what that means. Eid al-Fitr ʻĪd al-Fiṭr, Means “festival of breaking of the fast”), also called Feast of Breaking the Fast, is an important religious holiday celebrated by Muslims worldwide that marks the end of Ramadan, the Islamic holy month of fasting. The religious Eid is a single day and Muslims are not permitted to fast on that day. This is a day when Muslims around the world show a common goal of unity. The date for the start of any Hijri month varies based on the observation of new moon by local religious authorities, so the exact day of celebration varies by locality. However in most countries, it is generally celebrated on the same day. Eid al-Fitr has a particular Salat (Islamic prayer) and is generally offered in an open field or large hall. It may be performed only in congregation (Jama’at).

Muslims meet at the feast and exchange greetings and visit their families and relatives. also visit Muslim friends and receives his friends and neighbors, and Aatvon on the poor.
It’s the first time in my life that I have to celebrate Eid al Fiter without my family, Mum, Dad, my wife and my two little daughters also my friends, and it’s hard for me. I felt like Kevin in Home Alone movie when he celebrated the Christmas alone without his family. But my only consolation is I had received congratulations on Eid al-Fitr from my colleagues here in India and this day is a Public Holiday for Muslims too. I started that day with eating some Dates before going to the Mosque (Al Masijed) wearing white clothes and white overhead. As Muslims used to wear white cloths in that day, and I prayed in wonderful Masijed in Vile Parle West, Mumbai.India and for my good luck as Mumbai has a large Muslim community, they made me feel so at home during prayer time. But after the prayer finished and I went back to my apartment I felt so homesick. I wanted to be with my family so much so I went on Skype to talk to my family and that was such a mood lifter. My daughters made me laugh and just seeing my wife smiling with me on that laptop made me feel happy and sad at the same time but just so happy to know that this form of communication is better than nothing at all. I am very grateful for Skype, Viber and WhatsApp!

There also other Pulse volunteers celebrated in this day like Moaz Ibrahim from Egypt works in (GSK Saudi Arabia) his assignment country is Nigeria. And Karima Taouki from Morocco her assignment country is Signal. And I think this also the first time they celebrated this day Alone without their families and friends but the only our consolation we do this for good reason which is our pulse assignment with our NGOs.

Finally, I would like to thank Dr. Sahar Elmenyawi (Head of Quality in Egypt Cairo site) for her support from the first step in pulse program, also my line Manager Dr. Doaa Eladly (OQ Manager in Cairo site) for her encourage before the assignment ,and I won’t forget my co-workers in the office Ahmed ,Eslam , Moustafa, Mohamed and Ashraf Also my Colleague Yolando Sutherland for helping me in this post and I never post a blog without taking her Opinion, so thanks Yolando so much.
