Ahmadiyyas observe end of Ramadan Festival

September 17
01:39 2010

CHINO: An estimated 1,000 Southern California members of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community attended a special prayer service and sermon, known as Eid-ul Fitr, at the Baitul Hameed Mosque in Chino to mark the completion of Ramadan, the month of fasting in Islam. 

The Eid service was on September 10. Islam uses the lunar calendar to keep track of religious observances such as Ramadan, the Hajj (the pilgrimage to Mecca) and the holy festivals that Muslims celebrate at the end of these two events, so each year the dates for these events move back 10 days.  Next year, Ramadan will occupy nearly the entire month of August, whereas this year, it began on August 11.

Imam Shamshad A. Nasir presided over the Eid Prayer and Sermon, which started at 10:30am.  The Imam delivered a sermon in English on the importance of Muslims living a life of simplicity, humility and thankfulness to God. 

Imam Shamshad also emphasized that Muslims who have observed Ramadan with full sincerity and dedication, and who have sought to increase their love for God and for their fellow human beings, should strive to maintain that higher level of spirituality, love for God and service to humanity.

The Imam reminded the congregation that the Holy Prophet Muhammad told all Muslims 1400 years ago that, during the month of fasting in Ramadan, one’s inner Satan is put in chains.  Imam Shamshad added that it is up to each Muslim to keep their Satan in chains after Ramadan is over.
The Imam also spoke on the subject of those with wealth, comparing them to great mountains and how they can be arrogant and consumed with worldly matters and turn a blind eye and a deaf ear to matters of faith, morality, spirituality and doing good for others. 

Imam Shamshad reminded the members that the Holy Quran talks about how God will cause the mountains to be broken into pieces and scattered into dust, and that this terminology can be taken literally and also metaphorically to represent the rich and powerful people in the world and how God will humble them in this life and in the next.    

After the sermon, members embraced and greeted each other with the words “Eid Mubarak!” – blessings of Eid.  Refreshments were served outside in the parking lot of the five-acre Islamic mosque.
