In Tausiyah, Wali Songo explained several philosophies of the spread of Islam in this country which put forward the element of peace, so that many people at that time were interested and accepted Islam sincerely.
Ustadz Zaky Mirza also revealed several terms related to Eid that are familiar to the Indonesian tongue. Like the word “Lebaran” which is taken from the Javanese language “Lebar” which is finished, taken from Indonesian which means broad which has a broad meaning to forgive. So that in Eid you have to mumble to apologize. In other terms, Eid is also referred to as “lebur” which means to become one because sins are dissolved/lost. The month of Shawwal is also called the month of “overflow”. There are many blessings in that month because there is a tradition of sharing (sharing food, gifts, etc.). And some call it “labur” which means to make it white or to purify it again.
During Eid, it is synonymous with friendship. Gathering in Arabic means connecting affection. Eid means that we become new humans, better humans in the eyes of Allah, family, relatives to be useful for many people. Eid is the beginning to do a lot of good. After listening to the tausiyah and question and answer session, the event was closed with a prayer and a group photo session.
