Eid al-Fitr is best spent with family. This year, the way we celebrate Eid al-Fitr will be different. We must stay at home to help the government flattens the COVID-19 curve in Indonesia. Although we can’t go back to our hometown, we can still have a joyous celebration at home.
Create an atmosphere of victory after a month of fasting by doing some fun activities at home. Read this article to discover how you can enjoy the blessings of Eid from the safety of your house!
Let’s Celebrate Victory at Home
Unlike in the previous year when we can go home on a mudik trip, this year we may not be able to meet our neighbors, relatives, and extended family members. Well, this is not a reason to be unhappy! There are a lot of things that we can do at home.
1. Eat Yummy Foods
What do you usually eat during Eid al-Fitr? During this festive season, you can have a big feast with your family at home. Some traditional foods that people often serve during Eid al-Fitr are opor ayam, ketupat, and rendang. If you’re into cooking, why don’t you cook those delicious dishes at home?
After you are full with the main course, it’s time to enjoy desserts and eat some candies 🥰✌️
2. Pray Together With Family
You probably are used to doing Salat Id together with hundreds of Muslims in the mosque. This year, everything is going to be different due to physical distancing. The Islamic organizations in Indonesia have advised Muslims to do Eid prayers from home. It’s a great time to pray together with your family, especially on Syawal 1, 1441 Hijriah.
While celebrating Eid at home, you can recite takbeer with phrases like Allahu Akbar aloud with your family. Takbeer starts the night before Eid after maghrib until the Eid prayer on the next day. It’s a form of gratitude towards Allah.
3. Schedule Video Meetings with Relatives
Fortunately, we are living in a world with advanced technology. Nowadays, although we can’t meet our friends or family physically, we can still talk to them through video calls.
During Eid al-Fitr, let’s maintain our relationship with friends, family, and relatives. Schedule video meetings with them, have conversations, and share your stories!
4. Snap a lot of Great Pictures
Eid al-Fitr at home means that you have more time to decorate your house. How about decorating your house with colorful lights? You can shop for cute decorations online.
Dress your best and look great this year. At home, you can take a lot of pictures of you and your family. These photos will make this year’s festive memorable. What about sharing your cool pictures on social media? 🤭
5. Dress Nicely
Although you can’t meet your relatives at their houses this year, it doesn’t mean you can’t dress your best during Eid. It’s been two months since many of us work from home. We may get used to wearing comfy clothes every day. Now, it’s time to put on your best clothes again!
Feel the special atmosphere at home by dressing up. It takes just a few minutes to make yourself look good!
