Eid with a make-up exam

This Eid-ul-Azha was one of a kind.

I missed the Eid prayer at the local masjid on time which was at 8am - same was the case with my brother. And out of all astonishment, we figured that there will be no second Eid prayer held at this masjid unlike other times. So it was really a guilt trip kinda thing to spend the Eid without having said the Eid prayer.

Then my father came with his word of wisdom. He said that Bayetul Mukarram (the central masjid of the country) had Eid prayers one after the other until 11am. Thus, Abbu was nice to drive us all the way to Bayetul Mukarram from Mirpur so that we could say our Eid prayers and celebrate Eid.

Trust me, it was so satisfying to be able to say the Eid prayers eventually. It's like you came late to an exam venue. Then you find the teacher won't take any makeup exam. And then you go to another teacher who agrees to take your makeup exam. Your degree is your satisfaction with no regrets. You can use this degree later when the time comes.
