THERE IS AND A BEAUTIFUL ONE , THE EID E NAUROZE ON THE 21 ST OF MARCH EVERY YEAR . THIS IS A CELEBRATION WHICH SHIAS OF IRAN ADOPTED FROM THEIR ANCESTORS AND THEN SHIAS ELSEWHERE ADAPTED AS A FINE AND A BEAUTUL CELEBRATION ONCE A WHILE THEY CAN ENJOY , OTHERWISE MOST OF THEIR TIME GOES INTO MOURNING THIS NEAR AND DEAR ONE OF PROPHET OF ISLAM OR THE OTHER .
EID E NAUROZE HAS A SPECIFIC ASTRONOMICAL SIGNIFICANCE IN WHICH THE SUN GOES INTO A CONSTELLATION WHICH IS CALLED BURJ E HAMAL , DON’T KNOW WHAT IT MEANS IN ASTRONOMICALLY SYSTEM BUT IS OFTEN CONSIDERED GOOD AND HIGHLY AUSPICIOUS FOR IT IS ATTACHED WITH MANY AUSPICIOUS HISTORICAL EVENTS .

IN THIS THE CELEBRATIONS ARE SIMPLE AND THERE IS NOTHING AGAINST SHARIYAH , ETHICS OR DECENCY.
FIRST THERE IS A SPECIAL PRAYER OF EID E NAUROZE WITH A NIYAT OF SUNNAT . SO A SUNNAT PRAYER IS ALWAYS A BLESSING ON WHATEVER OCCASION IT IS PERFORMED . IT IS AN INDIVIDUAL PRAYER , CAN BE PERFORMED IN FAMILY OR FRIED OR IN EVEN BETTER IN CINGREGATION BUT WITH THE NEEYAT OF FURADAH .THERE IS NO CONGRIGATORY PRAYER.

THEN THERE IS THE OFFERINGS OF NAZR USUALLY ON SWEETS, FRESH AND DRY FRUITS EVEN NEW SEASIONAL VEGITABLE WHICH COULD BE TAKEN RAW . IT IS ALSO SAID THAT THE DAYS OF EID E GHADEER AND ALSO NAVROZE COINCIDED IN THAT YEAR .IT IS THE SAME WEEK I AM SURE AS PER MY OWN CALCULATIONS .THERE ARE OTHER AUSPICIOUS HAPPENINGS REPORTED ON THE SAME DAY OF EID E NAVROZE.
THE USE OF FAN IS PREFERABELY STARTED FROM THIS DAY .THAT IS ONLY A TRADITION , DON’T THINK THERE IS ANY OTHER SIGNIFICANCE OF STARTING IT FROM THAT VERY DAY.
ON A PLAIN WHITE PLATE IS WRITTEN WITH SAFFRON AS INK AND WITH THE WOODEN TUBELLOR PEN A PRESCRIBED DOA , A PORTION OF THE LIQUID THUS OBTAINED BY WETTING IT IS DRANK AS BLESSING AND SPRINKLED ON THE FOUR CORNERS OF THE HOUSE THE FAMILY LIVES ..
GOOD CLEAN, IF CONVENIENT NEW CLOTHES ARE TO BE WORN ON THIS AUSPICIOUS OCCASSION AND FRIENDS AND RELATIONS MEET EACH OTHER . LIKE ALL GOOD OCCASIONS, CHARITY, FEEDING POORS AND DONATIONS ARE CONSIDERED HIGH BLESSINGS .
USE OF INCENSE, PUTTING PERFUME TO EACH OTHER AND SPRINKLE ON EACH OTHER ROSE WATER OR KEORA WATER IS ALSO A PLEASENT PRACTICE WHICH WITH THE LOCAL INFLUENCE OF HINDUS HOLI HAS ALSO TAKEN A SHAPE IN WHICH COLOURED WATER IS ALSO USED WITH MODERATION AND DECENCY . CURIOUSLY BOTH HOLI AND NAUROZE ALWAYS FALLS IN THE SAME MONTH OF MARCH . AS THE DATES CONSTANTLY ARE CHANGING IN HINDU CALANDER , THE DAYS HAVE COME IN THE HISTORY WHEN HOLI AND NAROZE COINCIDED ON THE SAME DAY AND IT WAS A DATE OF HINDU MUSLIMS PLAYING HOLI AND NAUROZE TOGATHER WITH A RIOT OF COLOURS DURING MY YOUNG DAYS I WAS STUDYING IN LUCKNOW INDIA .
MAY ALLAH BLESS EVERYONE WHO TRATS THE DAY AUSPICIOS, DOES GOOD AND SPENDS IN CHARITY .
A CAUTION , PLEASE DON’T DISCLOSE THIS BLOG TO A RABID WAHABBI, OR ELSE HE WILL SHOUT FROM HIS ROOFTOP, TAUBA TAUBAH, BIDA’A, BIDA’A, SHIRK AND HARAAM . IF THEY CANNOT BEAR THE MOST AUSPICIOS EID E MAULOOD , HOW CAN THEY, THIS SHIA EXCLUSIVE CELEBRATIONS .
