The origin of the word Bayram is Persian beẕrem/beẕrâm (بذرام/بذرم), which means “day of joy and fun”. The Arabic word for Eid is id (iyd). Ibnu’l-A’râbî interpreted this word as “he returns with a new joy every year”. However, when the feast is a collective event, a meaning will emerge as follows; “Eid is the day when joy and happiness are shared. While feasting for him; The “good luck” side is said to have a blessed holiday. In other words, the more joy and happiness shared with many people, the more fruitful the holiday will be.
So, what is this happiness…? Is it getting out of Ramadan? Or to get rid of fasting? No, no, strictly and never… Maybe it is the gains a believer gains during Ramadan. It is the sentence of feyiz, light, perfection and good deeds.
Because He gained a different perfection with fasting. He became so blessed with his tarawih prayers, his recitations, his recitations of the Holy Quran, his nightly revivals and many more unknown acts of worship; multiplied his rewards a thousand times. Allah Almighty gave him as much as he gave from His mercy. Especially with the night of power, he crowned it so much; His rewards, which were a thousand, were multiplied by thirty thousand this time. Let alone thirty thousand writings for a good deed, thirty thousand rewards have been written for each letter of the Qur’an. The ocean of mercy became more and more abundant… That believer added life to his life as if he had prayed for eighty-three years in such a Ramadan.
This is the feast of this achievement. Joy and happiness are manifestations of this achievement. Eid is to share this blessing and perfection with other people and to pass it on to one another to make him happy and satisfied. For this reason, he is asked to be blessed so that everyone can benefit materially and spiritually. May Allah bless our holidays.
As a foundation, we celebrate our holiday; We will perform our Eid prayer in the Süleymaniye Mosque, inshallah, after the prayer at our Süleymaniye Service Center. It has become a tradition for us. We invite all our followers to the feast. We congratulate and confirm your holiday in advance. May it bring peace, tranquility and unity to the Islamic world and humanity.
