The Prophet of Allah (Allah bless him and give him peace) said;
“On the day of eid (when people gather to offer eid prayers)
Allah says to the Angels,
‘Have these people fulfilled the obligation (of fasting)
and are now gathered for prayers?
I swear by My pride,
that I will fulfill their prayers.
Tell them to return,
I have forgiven them all
I have replaced their sins with virtuous deeds.’
Hence they return completely forgiven.”
On our eid visit to Sayyidi wa sanadi Mawlana Mohammad Taqi Usmani (Allah preserve him) we always found him to be extremely happy and cheerful, repeatedly telling us Arifbillah Dr Abdul Hayy Arifi (Allah have mercy on him)’s saying regarding Eidul fitr,
“We are excessively blessed individuals today!
All our sins have been forgiven.
They have been bartered with good deeds.
We are completely clean and tidy.”
An unimaginable joy!
