Ramadan departs | Eid Mubarak

The month of fasting, Ramadan, is often greeted by the Sufis as a good friend, and as a welcome and honoured guest. They love to see this guest come, but also to see him go.

The implication of the first is clear, but perhaps not of the second. The end of the month of fasting is followed by a feast. In ordinary terms it means that you can eat and drink.

In Sufi terms the feast implies the meeting with the Beloved. The Beloved is then the cupbearer Who pours out the wine of gnosis and love.

Jami writes (ghazal #1-178 p. 201):
Helal-e 'id jostan kaar-e 'aam ast
Helal-e 'id-e khaasaan daur-e jaam ast.

The search of the crescent of the feast
is the work of the common people.
For the elite, the circling movement of the goblet
is the crescent of the feast.

That is why a Chishti pir often said: "May every day be a day of festival to you!"

As the moon of Ramadan come to an end and the new moon appear on the horizon, it marks the islamic festival, Eid ul Fitr. Depending on geographic location, muslims around the world will be celebrating the Festival either on Tuesday (30th September) or Wednesday (1st October).

The Shadhiliya sufi community, Naqshbandi-Haqqani community as well as others in USA will be observing on Tuesday this year.
