Ustadh Amjad Tarsin gives some perspective of what Muslims should look forward to at the end of Ramadan. Eid is a celebration of having completed the month of Ramadan in a state of worship, and having drawn closer to Allah. In that sense, every day that passes by where one abstains from sin is Eid. Sayyidina Ali ibn Abi Talib (may God be pleased with him) is reported to have said: “Eid is not merely wearing new garments, Eid is for the one who’s worship increases.”
Ultimately the true Eid celebration for a believer is realized in the hereafter, when they are entered into paradise are in the company of the Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him).
