Now that we fasted and did extra good deeds,
We celebrate Eid-ul-Fitr, one of the two Eids!
Allah prescribed two Eids and forbid all other festivals,
He told us to worship Him and try to get the medals!
Ramadan is a special training for a Muslim,
Practice Islam even when its light appears to be dim.
Continue doing good deeds, just as in Ramadan
And give Sadaqa-e-Fitr, for every child, woman and man
We go to the Eid-gah and say the Takbir,
On Eid day, our best clothes we do wear!
We listen to the Eid khutbah,
And don’t leave until we pray the Eid salah!
We go to the Eid prayer in any type of weather,
And give presents to each other!
We say Eid Mubarak,
And wish each other good luck!
We celebrate the festival of Eid
By thanking Allah for granting us our needs!
