When I was a child, I used to be so excited about Eid ul Fitr that I won’t be able to sleep at night! I couldn’t wait to wear my new clothes and show it to everyone! Get money from the family’s elders and eat sweets like mad!!!
But slowly, as we grow up, we kinda realize how life speeds up past us. So now, as Eid has finally arrived, I didn’t sleep and I’m very excited! Not because of my clothes, nor the money or the food, I’m excited about meeting up with my beautiful family and neighbors! Can’t wait to see them all!
The concept of ‘Sensus Divinitatis’ in Protestantism is same as Al-Fitra in Islam.
“That there exists in the human mind and indeed by natural instinct, some sense of Deity [sensus Divinitatis], we hold to be beyond dispute, since God himself, to prevent any man from pretending ignorance, has endued all men with some idea of his Godhead…. …this is not a doctrine which is first learned at school, but one as to which every man is, from the womb, his own master; one which nature herself allows no individual to forget.”
– John Calvin
Wish you all a very happy Eid ul Fitr Mubarak!
