    The Two Eid's

    Translation of Sahih Bukhari, book 15:

    Volume 2, Book 15, Number 69:

    Narrated 'Abdullah bin Umar:

    Umar bought a silk cloak from the market, took it to Allah's Apostle and said, "O Allah's Apostle! Take it and adorn yourself with it during the 'Id and when the delegations visit you." Allah's Apostle (p.b.u.h) replied, "This dress is for those who have no share (in the Hereafter)." After a long period Allah's Apostle (p.b.u.h) sent to Umar a cloak of silk brocade. Umar came to Allah's Apostle (p.b.u.h) with the cloak and said, "O Allah's Apostle! You said that this dress was for those who had no share (in the Hereafter); yet you have sent me this cloak." Allah's Apostle said to him, "Sell it and fulfill your needs by it."

    Volume 2, Book 15, Number 73:
    Narrated Anas bin Malik,:

    Allah's Apostle never proceeded (for the prayer) on the Day of 'Id-ul-Fitr unless he had eaten some dates. Anas also narrated: The Prophet used to eat odd number of dates.

    Volume 2, Book 15, Number 77:
    Narrated 'Abdullah bin Umar:

    Allah's Apostle used to offer the prayer of 'Id-ul-Adha and 'Id-ul-Fitr and then deliver the Khutba after the prayer.

    Volume 2, Book 15, Number 102:
    Narrated Jabir bin 'Abdullah:

    On the Day of 'Id the Prophet used to return (after offering the 'Id prayer) through a way different from that by which he went.

    but the love of real true friends."
