"Allah is greatest! Allah is greatest: There is no God save Allah, and Allah is Greatest, Allah is greatest, and for Allah is the praise".
After exodus, when the Prophet (P.B.U.H.) arrived at Madina Munawwarah, there were two days appointed by the populace of Madina for amusement and recreation. the Prophet inquired about those days, and When he was informed that those two days were determined, in Pre-Islamic period, for amusement, He told : Allah has replaced you two better days. The Eidul Fitr Festival Day and the Eidul Adhaha festival Day. He (P.B.U.H.) added: On the festival Day, the Angels wait in the way of prayer-course and call loudly:
O Muslim Ummah: Walk to your Lord, the generous, the Benign! who rewards you: You were ordered for the Nocturne so you complied with, and you were ordered to observe fast so you obeyed your Lord. Now the time is ripe to get the reward.
And when they end the Eid Prayer, the Angels Proclaim :
Lo! You have been rewarded by your Lord and you are retreating back to your Houses successfully.
The Eidul fitr festival is a day to celebrate the victory of a very magnificent Mission. It is but the profuse bounty of our Benign Lord that He conferred on us the endless gaiety and happiness on the first Shawwal through His beloved Prophet (P.B.U.H.), while the same month is remembered for the destruction and deracination of the pervious nations.
It is narrated by Hazrat Ali (K.W.) that the folks of Hazrat Noah (A.S.) were inundated on the first of Shawwal. The day when the folks of Loot were meted by torment was the first of Shawwal. Pharaoh was drowned along with his troops in the sea on Tuesday which coincidentally the first of Shawwal. The same case was with the folks of Aad who were destroyed on Wednesday. Folks of Saleh were hit by the torture during Shawwal month.
It. was a festive day of Eidul Fitr. Since early morning, the Muslims were engaged with the preparation for their sacred festival. The atmosphere Of Madina was marked with gaiety and fervor. As the time of prayer was ticking by, the people started to walk to the prayer course in their best costumes. The boys were busy with their merriment in the near by play ground. The whole atmosphere had turned highly gleeful and aromatic. The Eid prayer was over and the boys began to return to their homes joyfully. When the Prophet (P.B.U.H.) attempted to return, He was stopped by the sight of a wretched boy who was secluded in the ground, with the tears streaking his cheeks. The Prophet (P.B.U.H.) approached him, passed his hand on his head gently and asked him about the reason of his tears. The boy was highly angry, so he asked the Prophet (P.B.U.H.) to leave him alone. But the prophet. (P.B.U.H.) pacified him very compassionately and repeated the question. Then the boy very deliriously narrated his sad story :
"O Prophet (P.B.U.H.)! My father has got martyrdom in a battle and my mother has remarried, and her new husband has shown me the door out. All my legacy has been snatched by others. To-day when all my colleagues are making merry of new costumes and delicious foods, I have no food, no cloth and no shelter. That is why I am weeping.
The pathetic story of the boy filled the eye of the Prophet (P.B.U.H.) with tears. He asked the boy with a broad smile: will it make you happy that I be your father, Ayesha be your mother and Fatima be your sister?
The boy nodded positively and accompanied the Prophet (P.B.U.H.) to his house. He (P.B.U.H.) called Ayesha (R.A.) and told her : Receive this your child.
Hazrat Ayesha arranged his bath, new dressing and food and told him:; My boy! Go out and play with the children and return to the home after some time.
