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!

Normally, when there’s a birthday, an anniversary or a wedding, that we can’t stop asking from others, what are we supposed to give as a gift or how to make people feel special while giving them something worth it. Giving cash out also feel weird at times, so what next?

Image result for giftsGifting someone for the first time is easy but when you have to give them like every year or twice in a year, its quite complicated as options goes completely vein and in that vein, we sniffed around the fanciest, chanciest brands, and found the cheapest, nicest item from each (many of which, we should note, are not cheap-cheap — only relatively so) that would make a wonderful, indulgent gift, especially for the stumpers on your list. Sometimes, being brand-obsessed when it comes to gifts is good, but then again the choices are totally unpredictable. There is something so glamorous about opening a Chanel gift box — even when what’s inside said a box is a bar of soap.Related image

So, for keeping everything in place, companies have introduced gift cards, which become people’s favorite thing to give and to have one. No issue of choices or return or exchange or size issue. Just give them the card and let the person decide himself/herself what they like to have.

These ideas of gift cards have done wonders around the world, in every sector people are now preferring gift cards, whether a fashion brand, a retail store or an e-com venture, everyone has different gift cards to offer, at different occasions.

So, here in Imtiaz Super Market, we are also planning to announce a series of gift cards, for every occasion with every kind of range to offer, from the minimum amount of 500 to max of 5000.

Now, forget the tension of what to give, just visit the stores and buy your gift card, which will be valid for a long time than expected.

Relax!! This won’t happen, as our systems are well efficient in recognizing all the factors, also our teams are working and testing every aspect to overcome such frauds and activities.

The company is also planning to announce more gift cards as per the demand, as this product goes on top or gives a good response they might extend more of variety or range.

Corporate events are a big deal when it comes to the development of an organization. At Imtiaz Super Market its management acknowledged the hard work its employees put forth for the benefit of the Company. Hence, it decided to plan a corporate event surrounding sports to celebrate.

The event started off good, everyone was involved. There was a total of four teams competing against each other. Each team had a title; ISM Hawks, ISM Kings, ISM Tigers, ISM Shaheen, led by HR head, Marketing head, Category manager (health and beauty) and the fourth team was led by the GRN maker. Everyone was given a fair chance to become the lead or captain of the team. There was a competition but with positive vibes around. Everyone was excited, as it was a cricket tournament, and cricket is a sport that is loved by Pakistanis generically. The spirit and the passion people have for cricket is commendable.

TROPHIES | Proud Partners


 


Almost 180 people were engaged in this tournament that was sponsored by in-house brands; Poonam, Oven Fresh, and Home Sense. The match started at around 7 pm and was fully active till morning; 5 am, all matches were fixed back to back. A fun part was when a poll was done before the match as a wild guess of which team will win. The results were somehow expected as per the hype. However, the final match and results of the back to back matches were totally unexpected, opposite of what we thought.

Trophies were given to the winning team and best performers alongside gifts to appreciate their enthusiasm. Some people got some serious injuries though. All the excitement and practices were worth the hard work put in the event. The event ISM League turned out to be amazing.

Whenever someone mentions that they are working in Imtiaz Super Market, people ask which branch?
So, firstly, every market or mart or store which is expanded to this level, do have a head office or can have a head office too. Imtiaz Super Market has a head office where they have HR dept, its audit dept, its finance dept, and the list goes on. From where its CEO watches all the branches, functions and dept through a hawk eye view.
Now do you know how many branches does Imtiaz Super Market have, total branches, their locations, and their presence hitting which areas?
Let’s explore this journey with me, which many of us doesn’t know, including me.
I have only witnessed Imtiaz Super Market few branches, means personal visits and shopping experience. As a child, I use to know one and only branch and that is Bahadurabad branch, the first ever store from which they had grown to such a new level.
Talking about its first ever branch, Bahadurabad, it was initially a really small and congested shop, I use to visit it with mum for grocery. The range of edible grocery is amazing, you can get anything to everything there, from herbs to pluses, rice to wheat, along with the guarantee of being clean and the price is so affordable along with the packaging, like from a small amount of herb to a full package, from minimum to maximum quantity.
Later on, I use to visit Imtiaz Super Market, because of medicines. Imtiaz Super Market provides more discounts on medicine than any other Super Market in Pakistan, i.e. 12% of discount.
After almost 8 years, because of the increase in demand for Imtiaz Super Market and the crazy or massive footfall they thought of opening another branch, right beside passport office, and why not? I mean, while waiting for the turn why not go and buy some stuff or even after getting free from all the hassle why not some beverages or things like frozen food to buy?
Even this branch got a huge response, as per Imtiaz Super Market amazing price range, it has attracted and gained more popularity amongst people.
Initially  Imtiaz Super Market was famous only in the range of normal middle-class families, after this branch, it got a lot more attention, even from the upper class. To divert such an amazing response and footfall, and to ease out the customers, for more facility Imtiaz  Super Market opens its two more branches, one in DHA and other in Nazimabad. Two big branches allowing more capacity of people to shop and enjoy the ultimate shopping experience.
People from other cities who came on vacations even, use to shop and go back with the items, mentioning the fame on their social channels, which make Imtiaz more confident to grow and expand its wings outside Karachi too.
Moving to Punjab sector, Imtiaz Super Market opens up at Faisalabad and Gujranwala, to serve more and more people. Because their mission is to unlock the potential of customers buying power to improve their quality of life.
Coming back to the city where it all started off, “From inception to a bigger reality”. They again planned for more expansion, this time they target the most populated area “Gulshan” along with a mindset of going larger as per area than any other branch, to facilitate more people. Regardless of the parking issue faced by people, still Imtiaz has a massive footfall along with a great demand for groceries and other stuff.
They have opened a few more branches this year, near Malir, because all the branches were at a distance, and people were demanding a lot more than expected. Then coming back to the same area, near Tariq road and at Sharfabad.
Oh! Did I mention that Sharfabad branch is Imtiaz Super Market express, which means, they are serving customers like 24/7?
