Salaam Shakir and Salaam to Everyone
Eid in Arabic means to returning to something after leaving it, from root verb ‘Ada with ‘Ain . This is because every year we come back to celebrate the same occasions.

I cannot answer this, please ask someone else.
Salam, Dear Dara, Shakir,
Brother Dara informed us that “Eid in Arabic means returning to something after leaving it, from root verb ‘Ada with ‘Ain” . “This is because every year we come back to celebrate the same occasions. ”
Indeed, Dara’s Arabic knowledge is valuable. Based on the knowledge he is providing us, may this faqir suggest an additional definition for Eid, as follows: Ramadan is the month during which the “Umma” of our Beloved Prophet (SAWS) abandon their material life to concentrate on life with Allah. Indeed, fasting is not only depriving one’s self of food and drink, but rather, it is divorcing one’s physical self to live in Spirit. In that sense, Eid would mean the end of Ramadan and one’s return to “regular” life in the physical world.
This faqir also wanted to thank you, Brother Shakir, for not to long ago quoting a post here from “Love at the Endless Horizon”, the BlogSpot of Beloved Brother Dani Indranu.. Masha’AllaH. How Beautiful are Dani’s writings, and how effulgent His soul. AllaHuMMa Bless him and give him more Light. Insha’Allah.
Love and Light,
Thank you for your beautiful words,Sir.
Masha Allah. And your writing on ‘Beauty’ is so beautiful that I did not dare make any comment.
Thanks to Respected Dara Sir as well for providing linguistic and a deep meaning.
I was really stunned when i first read Brother Dani’s writings. BUT as the blog is not being operated anymore,I tried to find him. Unfortunately,I could’t find him.
Bye the way,one more question.
Why actually is the Eid day being observed as a day of Delight/Joy?
The Arab of pre-Islam did not have any celebrations for new years or other occasions. I believe that the Prophet wished for the Arab to have a new culture and celebrations and occasions to frolic.
