Eid Mubarak to all
May Allah grant all of our prayers and those of our children (no prizes for guessing what was high on their list this year!
). It is always sad when it is over.
It was a truly blessed month. I found keeping DS busy with work was the best way to distract. Alhamdu lillah, DS managed to keep all his fasts, complete memorization of 2 juz' of Qur'an and improve his marks - although he is usually terrible when he is hungry, or tired, or sleepy, or in the afternoons, or.....
Eid may be tomorrow but still not sure: Egypt follows only the scientific method (whether sighted or not),so will have it tomorrow. Saudi TV has just said that the new moon will be born in some parts of Saudi but maybe not in Makkah - so they have not quite decided yet.
So I am afraid it seems like it is going to be one of those years again - just as we were all doing so well! Never mind: it used to bother me, but I take it as part of the excitement now - will we, or won't we?
Anyway, I think the important thing is that we enjoy it and let the kids make the most of it. We might all be a bundle of nerves by the time it is Eid Al-Adha.
