Eid Gifts 2024

Eid is a time of joy and celebration. It’s a time when we give thanks to Allah (SWT) and celebrate with friends, family, neighbours and loved ones. Alhamdulillah!

During Eid al-Fitr and Eid al-Adha, we come together and celebrate. For children in particular, receiving gifts makes these days extra special.

Prophet Muhammad (ﷺ) said: “Give gifts to one another, you will love each other.”

Eid Gifts: Bring a smile to a child’s face

Sadly, not everyone can afford to give their children something special during Eid. Around the world, there are families living in poverty, widows and orphaned children. They are unable to meet their most basic needs and are struggling to survive.
