BUT WAIT.....When one door closes Allah opens another! With the end of Ramadhan Allah blesses us with the night of Eid-ul-Fitr, also referred to as Lalylat-ul-Jaaiza in the Hadeeth; The night of prize-giving! The Hadeeth states that Allah watches His servants compete with one another in accumulating good deeds during the month of Ramadhan. So naturally at the end of the competition, there has to be a prize-giving ceremony! On the eve of Eid-ul-Fitr Allah rewards his servants for striving to please Him in the blessed month of Ramadhaan.
Our beloved Prophet Muhammad (sallallaahu alayhi wa sallam) said to the effect, "Whoever stands (in worship) during the nights preceding the two Eids, expecting rewards from his Lord, then his heart will not die on the day that all hearts will die (referring to the horrifying day of Qiyaamah). (Ibn Majah)
The night of Eid is indeed a very precious night for a believer, a night wherein duas are accepted. Unfortunately it is seen that most people think it is a time to celebrate and much time is wasted in preparing for the next day.
May Allah give us the ability to make the most of each opportunity He bestows for us to turn to Him and draw from His vast treasures. Ameen.
