Assalamu Alaiykum, 

Br Sadah, I agree with Sr Jannah great pics. Sr J, you too. Now I wish I'd taken pictures of Eid, but was too lazy to take them. 

Ok my Eid day was what shall I say? Interesting with a capital I. Firstly, we all went Jamah & then came had a proper Eid breakfast.. Bengali style which consists of savoury delights such as Somosa's, peri peri chicken, kebabs, & savoury pastries. Then it was presents for the whole family. Overall everyone was happy with gifts.. My kids got bikes ( my son actually came & thanked me, hugged & kissed me before he went on his bike... Too cute Smiley )
Secondly, I got great pressies.. I got bedding (my sis is so practical) speciality teas... Yum yum.. & a friend gave me *OMG*... GHD hair straighteners. Sr's you know what I'm talking about? Great pressie, I was like a big kid. They were the pink ones where a portion goes to a cancer charity, bonus! 
Lunch, was the traditional pilau, korma (Bengali korma is very different- consists of eggs & chicken) & lots of curries. Mithai, rasmalai for dessert. 
In the afternoon I took a 5hr nap, I think it's all the staying awake during Ramadan, that this almost was like a treat Wink
In the evening, we all went out as a family, & next day we all went for Pizza & Salad lunch with kids. After all the rich food of Eid day, it was a welcome change! 

Hope everyone had a great Eid!
Ma'Salam,

PS There is an amazing video I wanted to upload but couldnt have a good network, and I'm kinda busy to go to an internet cafe.



Really? It's nice to see people celebrating on the great day. Yours are the most amazing Sis Jannah!

Muslims across the world have been fasting from sunrise to sunset for the past 30 days but now celebrations are in full swing. London comedian Humza Arshad takes a unique look at some of the festivity highlights.

Salam alaikum

Love the pics!  It's so colourful, both Sadah's and Jannah's eid pics are filled with colour, mashaAllah.

You know, if I had to take a pic of the Eid salah here, the womens' section would just be black!  we love our black abayas we do, you'd swear we were in Saudi or something...not so many colours floating about.

Maybe next eid, inshaAllah.

wsalam,

Some women still wear black abayas over their fancy clothes, but they're mostly recently from India/Pak. The rest of the womens go all out and wear awesome cultural stuff. It's really nice to see actually, such diversity in the ummah! We're pretty much separated the whole time then go home after the prayers so why not!

PS u should have seen what i wore! Wink

PSS i keep eating ur chocolate mmmm. i keep thinking to send u back something but our chocolate isn't that great i'll have to think of something!

I've seen loads of beautiful colourful abaya wearing sisters all who do their hijabs really nicely etc, I considered (very briefly) tying my hijab in a slightly different manner, did it a couple of times and found I cannot be asked, I am that lazy, I do have colourful abayas but I feel visible in them so don't wear them!

I'm a fade into the background kinda gal.

Sr Jannah I do say blimey when bemused, I have an american friend who uses it in completely the wrong context but I've not the heart to tell him. Blimey literally means blind me, we had a long assembly about it when we were about 8 I think as the teacher was cross about us using the word with such abandon................needless to say from that point onwards 'blimey' pretty much took over as the popular phrase in the school!

Asalaamu Alaikum bro

I think the full phrase is 'cor blimey' and in the name of Madina investigative journalism I came across the following:


Meaning

An exclamation of surprise.

Origin

A euphemism (specifically a minced oath) derived from 'God blind me'.

Blimy is first recorded in print in Barrère and Leland's A dictionary of slang, jargon and cant, 1889. The extended version was used, by Arthur Morrison in A Child of the Jago, 1896:

"Gawblimy, not what?"

The link between 'gor blimey' or 'cor blimey' and 'god blind me' was made evident by James Joyce in Ulysses, 1922:

God blimey if she aint a clinker

Being as it is, a contraction of 'God blind me', the term was originally spelled 'gorblimey' and is still frequently used that way.

Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy funny... 

Anyway, when I was a kid we used to see all these flashy cars that'd be hired out (I'm talking Sierra Sapphire, Mondeo, even Lamborghini..) going round & round our primary school with flags plastered to the bonnet & whatnot... Then this 'cruising' evolved into Limousines being hired out & even Limo truck things.. Like BrKhalid I never understood that either. I mean, I thought the whole point of having a car is to go from A to B, not deliberately trying to involve yourself in traffic jams that so often is the case on Eid with these kids. Nowadays up north, they actually close certain roads in places like Manchester & Bradford where these 'outta  towners' head towards. It's not even the locals nowadays...

Assalamu Alaiykum,

I really wanted to watch this khutbah. It doesn't let me open the file on my smartphone ( well that's not very smart is it? Sad ) I couldn't find it posted on YouTube either. Can anyone recommend anything else that I maybe able to watch it on?
Otherwise, I may have to get my laptop out ... Ho.. Hum! (feeling very lazy, it actually feels like a mission to get it out.. Lol)

Jazakallah Khaiyr in advance.

salam,

I was thinking about why this khutbah was so great and why everyone loved it so much they posted it everywhere, when I was listening to our khutbah today! I think it's because most khutbahs are kinda mean.... you know they're usually just about Fiqh or the Hellfire (today's topic here!) and very strong and strict. And the above ^ khutbah was just about plain Love and Acceptance. I was waiting for the khateeb here in part 2 to go into Jannah but he didn't... just kept talking about Hellfire, which is important, but I just felt like there was no balance really. Often when reading the Quran I notice after "harsh" scary verses about the Hellfire there's always a But... if they do righteous deeds..if they repent... and beautiful verses about Jannah follow.

Anyways just a thought that we need to talk more about love and acceptance among muslims! loveshower hug flowers4u
