Inclusive Eid

The rainbow has belonged in our affairs all along

I posted this on a couple of progressive and radical Muslim groups on social media, and thought it belonged here, too:

To all our fellow Muslims feeling like they don't have a congregation, a community that really owns them on a day like this: THIS is your congregation; THIS is your community ; THIS is your ummah. You are our community; you are our congregation; you are our community. Eid Mubarak, my people. Blessed be. For that is what the greeting means.

Takbeer: Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar, la ilaaha ill-Allah, wAllahu Akbar, wAllahu Akbar, wa Lillah il-hamd!
[Allah is the Greatest, Allah is the Greatest, there is no god but Allah; and Allah is the Greatest, and Allah is the Greatest, and to Allah belongs all praise]

To quote Maulana:

Come, Come, Whoever You Are
Wonderer, worshipper, lover of leaving.
It doesn't matter.
Ours is not a caravan of despair.
Come, even if you have broken your vow

a thousand times
Come, yet again, come, come.
