People count days for #Ramazan cause it’s a month of extra blessings, people do more good deeds try to pray five times a day and much more, the blessing of this month is felt in every way and everywhere…

Ramadan is a gift from Allah to all of us, in which we fast and pray. And for all the good deeds we do we get rewarded extra, like for extra nawafil that we pray, Fast (Roza), zakat, sadqa, HE rewards us more, double or triple times than in a normal day… Eid ul Fitr intends to commend the long stretch of fasting… Muslims have enjoyed supplications during the time of Ramadan and Allah Almighty has favored them with bliss as Eid. Endowments, amicability, and satisfaction are showered on Muslims by Almighty Allah to stamp the festival of Meethi Eid ul Fitr.

My grandparents often say:

“Eid is the day of our result”

We fast for a whole month and for all the fasts and prayers, Allah blesses us with EID…

An event to celebrate…

Dress up for Eid:

Preps of Eid is never-ending, even on Chaand Raat if you ask about the preps you feel like something is missing. Or we forgot to arrange this….

Besides the things that are mandatory are:

  1. Shower
  2. New Clothes or even not new than the best of your clothes
  3. Mehandi, parlor and special kinds of stuff because without all this Eid are incomplete.

Cleaning up and wearing new clothes on Eid is a custom. Whether a male or female, the individuals who can bear the cost of a new dress, suit up themselves in the most extravagant and luxurious outfits, while the individuals who can’t at present figure out how to look best on Eid day.

Ladies or females like us like to enrich their hands with mehndi and bangles to stamp the bubbly state of mind. The way to Eid festivity is to wear new clothes.

Regardless of how much profound complaints we have confronted, we greet Eid entire-heartedly.

Give Fitra to the Needy:

Fitra is paid to poor people, before Eid, so that they can too purchase something on Eid and celebrate it with us. So, don’t forget the destitute and underprivileged in your carnival. Paying Fitra to the penniless individuals is a religious commitment before going for Eid prayers. Ensure that you have made the Fitra payment well before Eid so that they can make their Eid clothes on time.

 

 

Attend the Eid Prayers:

Before leaving for Eid prayers, family gatherings are best, like waking up early morning, rushing to kitchen for helping parents for breakfast, showing of mehndi colors, fighting over food and sitting beside grandparents, along with the task of helping mothers. After all the chaotic scenes, getting ready for Eid, as all the male members of the family leave for Eid Namaz.

Eid Prayers are held early morning at different Masjids, and outside open areas (Eid Gah). The time of Eid prayers varies. It is necessary to go to Eid supplications and Khutbah on Eid day to express appreciation to Allah Almighty for innumerable gifts and joy. After the supplications, hug and greet each other by wishing them, Eid Mubarak.

Give Eidi and Gifts to the Younger Ones:

As a child, I have always been excited for EID, because receiving a lot of Eidi, more than any cousins, and getting all dressed up, sometimes dressing just like my sister, posing and working like twins, was the best thing, Mehandi the next big stuff for me, and that color…. jewelry and cakes everywhere… and the new notes as Eidi that is the thing which excites me even today, even after been grown up… Now as a grownup EID is like give and take, you have to give and receive… You have to get dressed and do the house chores. But still receiving Eidi and new notes are the most exciting things after Mehandi.

Every women and child in family use to gather to greet Eid greeting and to collect Eidi from elders as soon as they are back from Eid Prayers.

Note:

Not just your family members, but your housemaids and other servants are equal recipients to receive Eidi. Do remember them in your celebrations.

Visit the Resentful Relatives:

Are you still not in talking terms with your aunt or any of your blood relation? Then Eid is the best moment to cheer them up and forget all the issues or at least keep them aside.

Request:

Please do visit your resentful relatives and try to let go with the misunderstandings. Eid is a blissful day to mend hearts and to reconnect with the loved ones. Utilize it to spread happiness, peace, and harmony among relatives and friends.

Feast with Family:

Eid time is family time. These three days of Eid are the ultimate opportunity to have splendid family time. Rejoice every moment of Eid ul Fitr with some cheerful laughter, games, chit chat, gossips and family dinners along with those beautiful selfies and crazy amazing moments…

In case you are stuck up at home and waiting for guests to arrive, give yourself some me time, read or watch your favorite things… Its summer so stays indoor and hydrated…

Oh, and do you know this secret I am about to share?

The blessing of Six Fasts of Shawwal:

I have observed in the family that grandparents use to fast on the 2nd day of Eid till 7th of Shawal, like 6 more Roza after Eid…

I have always wondered the reason for extra Roza or for this particular act… Upon some research, it is advised to fast for 6 days in the month of Shawwal. From 2nd Shawal onwards, Muslims fast to earn blessings and Sawab.

According to Sahih Muslim, the Holy Prophet (P.B.U.H.) has said:

“Whoever completes the fasts of Ramadan then adds to them the facts of six days in the month of Shawwal, it will carry the Sawab of fasting for the whole year.”

The significance of Six Shawwal fasts is clear from this Hadith. Muslims should avail this golden opportunity for acquiring enormous reward from Allah Almighty. It is preferable to fast from 2nd Shawwal to 7th Shawwal.

 

Have a blissful Eid ul Fitr!

Welcome to Imtiaz Super Market Malir Cantt Branch

Let’s talk about the branch since many of us don’t know about it….

I was super excited to visit the Malir Cantt branch because as we all know that area is highly restricted and only the resident can go…

The traveling time or the way is too long to enter but the clean and safety I must say and the people there, wow so humble…

Moving on, the security measures which were very high, since we visited to make a video and we were not really sure of going with the camera inside… we were on the gate when we called our branch manager to please send the car as Careem or uber are not allowed inside the Cantt…

The car was already registered and the guy who came to receive us already had the card so luckily the things went smooth. We were finally inside the Malir Cantt after all the Hustle and bustle of gates and security checks…

I was amazed at all the beauty and all the neat & clean environment… The night view or even the day view of this particular branch is amazing. The location or the creation hats off to the team who worked day and night for this kind of art.

Although half of you might not feel or agree to what I said earlier then again everyone has their own vision to see…

I went inside had a complete tour of the branch, made some videos which you all can see are there in our Instagram highlights stories and also on our YouTube channel.

We were there for almost a day, so we have seen the day time the night time and the people, I felt like I haven’t explored Pakistan’s beauty, because there in that branch so many people were coming and going, families or single mothers, all kind of age group the hospitality and the warmth plus those mesmerizing colored eyes… oh lord, I should see more of Pakistan anyways lets complete the article and journey with adding some of the magical moments we had there.

We were supposed to take the interview of the head – manager of that branch firstly, on reaching there we started shooting the video because we don’t want to miss those chill scenes, and asked if we could postpone the interview for a few hours, till then we asked him a few questions and planned for a proper interview that we can shoot a little later.

In the meantime, as everyone knows that it’s a branch and it is in working condition, so work and shoot together are a bit hectic to manage, but the people there were so generous and the team was so good that they not only manage to fulfill our requirements also they worked and gave us some interviews, we started talking and shooting with every team member, supporting officers, floor in charge, customer care staff, pharmacist and the list goes on…

We have taken a lot of interviews, but the people who work there are so humble and soft-spoken that literally, their voices were all too low to be recorded…

Even we got a chance to meet the face of voice, I mean the voice we often hear in announcements within the branch are actually happening in the CCTV rooms and not a recording is being played. We got an opportunity to meet the staff and make a video even in that dark room… (giggles)

Well this branch has turned one Masha Allah and everyone was so happy and shock as they all were saying that its already a year? Really a year has passed? Wow, unbelievable amazing time flies so fast… and that’s why we have gone there to make a video and then for the celebration…. This was my first experience to visit Malir Cantt and now I know why people say so much about Malir Cantt…..

Did you watch our video?? If not, then here is the link to leave your comments so that we can improve it…

Let’s get started with the smallest interview that we have to cater with Mr. Asif Abbasi who is the business unit manager for that branch…

Some Fundamentals or the basis of how it started and what difficulties or where they feel challenges…?

Malir Cantt branch is the 9th branch in series of branch openings and very first branch in any Cantonment area of Pakistan. On 4th May 2018, it was inaugurated by our CEO MR. Imtiaz Abbasi.

Purpose and Dream:

The purpose of opening this branch was not just to approach new customers. Rather, also to pay tribute to the Pak army and other forces for their sacrifices and their respective services. Indeed, this branch is the interpretation of the dream of our CEO Mr. Imtiaz Abbasi.

Difficulties and challenges that the team faced:

Due to the military contest, there were many difficulties in the early days, top of the line to understand and follow the rules and regulations of the military area. But the team members turn impossible into possible.

Privileges:

This is Pakistan’s first and only branch which is given a 5% discount to every Army service person and 3% to every retired army person as a gift of their services.

Foot Fall:

Alhumdulilah Footfall is increasing day by day as we are trying our best to provide better services as this is one stop shop solution.

Categories that we have here:

As per customer’s need, we have added here different categories such as edible grocery, confectionery, condiments, beverages, crockery, household, frozen & fresh products like meat, seafood, vegetables & fruits, dry fruits, and pharmacy as well….

Hygiene factor:

Keeping the hygiene principles, we use food graded cutting boards for meat and seafood instead of working on traditional wooden. Every employee related with fresh category, medically checkup and vaccinated in every 3 months as per cantonment rules.

All necessary measures are brought to maintain the quality of vegetables and fruits up-to-date.

This branch is a milestone that we all have achieved together… Team Malir Cantt branch wishes all the best to the current branch also hope that this branch may grow more and achieve more…

These were some of the things that were shared by the manager whom we talked his own exposure which he faced during his tenure there….

Overall it was a great experience… I would recommend if you live nearby or in a mood for a long drive do have a simple visit there… I promise you won’t regret…

Even the parking space is huge, so no worries where to park…

Go and see yourself…

Ramadan – an occasion of fasting and a month for pure blessings…

Islam precisely outlines one full month of fasting during the month of Ramadan. … Ramadan fasting can be good for one’s health and personal development.

Ramadan is the month in which Allah Almighty opens His doors of mercy, compassion, and blessings upon Muslims. This month is enthusiastically awaited by all the Muslims as they accomplish the duty of fasting in this month.

Importance in Islam:

The month of Ramadan holds a special place in Islam and among Muslims because of two major reasons:

Firstly, the book of eternal guidance the Holy Quran was revealed upon Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) in this month.

Secondly, the 30days of fasting in this month lead to the glorious and auspicious the occasion of Eid ul Fitr for Muslims.

Observance:

The month is given great position by Muslims and Muslims in each part of the world. Observe this month with all the admiration, prestige and dedication because it deserves every attention.

7 Surprising Health Benefits Of Ramadan

Worried that fasting during Ramadan will have a detrimental impact on health? Find out why the month-long fast can have some surprising health benefits.

Although millions around the world have successfully observed the spiritual cleansing of Ramadan for more than a thousand years, some people fear that fasting over such a long period of time will have detrimental effects on their health. If you’re one of those worries, then check out these seven health benefits you’ll enjoy during and after Ramadan.

1 Dates

Although three dates are eaten at the start of Iftar every day during Ramadan for spiritual reasons, they also come with the added bonus of multiple health benefits. One of the most important aspects of fasting is getting the right amount of energy, and considering an average serving of dates contains 31 grams (just over 1 oz) of carbohydrates, this is one of the perfect foods to give you a boost.

Dates are also a great way of getting some much-needed fiber, which will aid and improve digestion throughout Ramadan. Add to that their high levels of potassium, magnesium and B vitamins, and it quickly becomes apparent that dates are one of the healthiest fruits out there.

2 Boost Your Brain

No doubt you’ll be aware of the positive effects fasting can have on your mental wellbeing and spiritual focus, but the brain-boosting powers of Ramadan are even more significant than you might think. A study carried out by scientists in the USA found that the mental focus achieved during Ramadan increases the level of the brain-derived neurotrophic factor, which causes the body to produce more brain cells, thus improving brain function.

Likewise, a distinct reduction in the amount of the hormone cortisol, produced by the adrenal gland means that stress levels are greatly reduced both during and after Ramadan.

3 Ditch Bad Habits

Because you will be fasting during the day, Ramadan is the perfect time to ditch your bad habits for good. Vices such as smoking and sugary foods should not be indulged during Ramadan, and as you abstain from them your body will gradually acclimatize to their absence until your addiction is kicked for good.

It’s also much easier to quit habits when you do so in a group, which should be easy to find during Ramadan. Fasting’s ability to help you cut out bad habits is so significant that the UK’s National Health Service recommends it as the ideal time to ditch smoking.

4 Lower Cholesterol

We all know that weight loss is one of the possible physical outcomes of fasting during Ramadan, but there’s also a whole host of healthy changes going on behind the scenes. A team of cardiologists in the UAE found that people observing Ramadan enjoy a positive effect on their lipid profile, which means there is a reduction of cholesterol in the blood.

Low cholesterol increases cardiovascular health, greatly reducing the risk of suffering from heart disease, a heart attack, or a stroke. What’s more, if you follow a healthy diet after Ramadan, this newly lowered cholesterol level should be easy to maintain.

5 Lasting Appetite Reduction

One of the main problems with extreme fad diets is that any weight loss is often quickly put back on, sometimes even with a little added extra. This isn’t the case with Ramadan. The reduction in food consumed throughout fasting causes your stomach to gradually shrink, meaning you’ll need to eat less food to feel full.

If you want to get into the habit of healthy eating then Ramadan is a great time to start. When it’s finished your appetite will be lower than it was before, and you’ll be far less likely to overindulge with your eating.

6 Detoxify

As well as being great for spiritually cleansing yourself, Ramadan acts as a fantastic detox for your body. By not eating or drinking throughout the day your body will be offered the rare chance to detoxify your digestive system throughout the month.

When your body starts eating into fat reserves to create energy, it will also burn away any harmful toxins that might be present in fat deposits. This body cleanses will leave a healthy blank slate behind, and is the perfect stepping stone to a consistently healthy lifestyle.

7 Absorb More Nutrients

By not eating throughout the day during Ramadan you’ll find that your metabolism becomes more efficient, meaning the number of nutrients you absorb from food improves. This is because of an increase in a hormone called adiponectin, which is produced by a combination of fasting and eating late at night and allows your muscles to absorb more nutrients.

This will lead to health benefits all around the body, as various areas are able to better absorb and make use of the nutrients they need to function.
