Eid Mubarak!

For all those who are celebrating, may your day be full of joy, celebration, and rejoicing in Allah’s mercy and closeness through the family and friends He has blessed us with. I feel that while Ramadan had everything to do with higher consciousness and putting the worldly needs on hold, Eid is an invitation to way to transition into being more in the world, as to rejoice and celebrate is human.

It’s hard not to feel a little forlorn about the end of Ramadan, though. The intermingling of that sadness and the joy of Eid is captured beautifully in Shelina Zahra Janmohamed’s piece about the bittersweet return of her morning cup of coffee post-Ramadan.

I am grateful to be alive on this lovely day, and to have the privilege to be speaking to each one of you. Enjoy, eat well, be merry!
