I am very happy for Eid, but my heart is aching…

I am very happy because it’s Eid, but my heart is aching…

…it’s aching with the feeling of pain for my brothers and sisters; those who are suffering, going through difficulties, hard times…

My heart cries when I eat delicious foods, while my brothers and sisters are hungry…

No one could ever understand their situation, I know… but I cannot do anything for them except Dua!

Sisters, don’t forget them! Keep them in your prayers.

May Allah (subahanahu wa tala) help them, and bring peace and happiness in their lives… Ameen!
