Selamat Hari Raya Haji!

"It is neither their meat nor their blood that reaches Allah, but it is piety from you that reaches Him." 
[Al-Qur'an 22:37]

Wishing all Muslims a blessed Eid-Ul-Adha. We celebrated Eid here today, while my in-laws celebrated Eid yesterday. And AZ's relatives in India will be celebrating tomorrow, In-Shaa-Allah.

I hope that Allah (S.W.T) has accepted all our Korban (animal sacrifices), sadaqah (charity), fasts and voluntary prayers. 

Alhamdhulilah, for us at home, it was a warm homely time of great food and great family time.

I wished I had done better with spending time with the Quran and Tahajjud prayers though. Time and again, I am reminded of the need to establish a secret relationship with Allah (S.W.T) through the Tahajjud prayers. But I am just not doing enough. 

I have made the niyyah (intention) to spend more time on this special prayers on certain times of the week. AZ is also supporting me on this, encouraging me to stay focussed on what I want to achieve. I really hope to do better on these special prayers, In-Shaa-Allah.

And I can't complete an Eid-Ul-Adha post without sharing this. Sister Umm Salihah has done a beautiful post on what this Eid means for Muslims. Please read her informational post here.

And keep her in your duas if you found the read useful, In-Shaa-Allah.

Mum's murukku and my marble cake. Both came out to be yummy, Alhamdhulilah.
