One of the blessings of Eid al-Fitr is that it strengthens the ties of kinship and brings the whole community together, through praying together, eating together, and giving gifts.
Giving gifts to each other is from the Sunnah and Eid al-Fitr is the perfect time to bring a smile to your loved one's face with a meaningful gift!
The Prophet (saw) said, 'Give each other gifts and you will love each other'. [Bukhari]
Exchanging gifts is a powerful action: not only does it increase our love for each other, but if our intentions are sincere, it will also hopefully increase Allah's love for us!
One of the qualities which beautifies our love for each other is when we love for Allah's sake. Spending on each other becomes more blessed and rewardable when we have a mutual desire to please Allah by loving each other and wanting good for each other.
Eid al-Fitr is usually the perfect time to spend on our friends and family out of sincere love and the desire to please Allah.
