A huge Eid Mubarak to my fellow Muslims celebrating Eid-ul-Fitr from home this year. May you have a great day filled with peace and blessings with those you live with. Ameen. 🤗🌙✨🕌🤲🏼
With Love, Salma
Ramadan is almost over and Eid will be this weekend. God willing. Wow, it flew by didn’t it? For me, it went with a blink of an eye, mostly because it didn’t quite feel like Ramadan this year.
The reason being is because I didn’t do Ramadan with my family at my parent’s house this year (since I don’t live with them). This kind of left me feeling sad, lonely, and empty most days if I am being completely honest.
Being in quarantine with a lack of old “normality” didn’t help either I guess. Although, I guess like most I’ve gotten kind of used to this “new normality” after all it has been 3 months since we’ve gone into lockdown. Damn!!!
Overall though, it was mostly a good month- filled with lots of lessons and blessings! ✨
I know Eid at home this year isn’t ideal, but the virus is still out there and we don’t have a vaccine for this yet. Not to mention we’ve become used to being at home. So this weekend shouldn’t be any different, right? We just need to stay home a little longer which in turn will save lives, to be honest.
I for one don’t even have Eid clothes this year, however, I will get up- to have my Eid shower, do my Eid prayer* and wear something clean and put makeup on and eat good food. If God wills (insha’Allah).
Here’s a video from East London Mosque on how to perform the Eid prayer* at home if anyone is interested to know:
Unfortunately, I won’t be celebrating Eid with my family either but I aim to visit them soon if God wills me to. So I will celebrate when I go to stay for a few weeks. 🙂 *Eeek, fingers and toes crossed*. 🤲🏼

Once again, Eid Mubarak to all those celebrating this weekend – praying you all will have a great Eid, Insha’Allah. Stay home and stay safe.
