    Maybe go to the masjid for eid salat and then depends on what you like doing, just treat yourself… have a chillaxing day, go and get some nice food - maybe try something new.

      Go to mosque. Give Eid greetings to sisters, start chatting, make friends. Mosques also have Eid dinners and other activities, usually for kids. Take your daughter, make friends. Whatever your issues there is someone else who can relate, who has gone through the same thing so don't shut yourself out.

      If you are being compromised i.e. not allowed out then you need to resolve those issues first before worrying about next Eid. You do NOT have to put up with mistreatment by anyone, parents or husband. The only obligation we have to each other is GOOD treatment not mistreatment.

        Wa'alaykumus salaam Sis,

        If I had to spend 'Eid alone, I would attend the 'Eid prayer and try to see what is happening in the masjid if I can. Some of the bigger masaajid take such situations into consideration and have events and such planned. If you have non-Muslim family or friends, there is nothing wrong with spending 'Eid with them as far as I know, why not try to meet up and spend it over a meal?

        Are you new to Islam or have you moved to a new area by yourself, Sis? Either way, try to find centers for Islamic learning and join classes or more social gatherings, let Sisters know about your situation. If you're nervous about feeling as though you're imposing yourself on them, you can invite them over to yours or whatever you prefer so it's not like you're putting any pressure on them to act first you know? There are some really lovely Sisters out there, may Allah grant you the company of pious Sisters.

        Wa iyyaaki.

          I'd eat something festive for the occasion (but that's cos' I'm really into good food). Either buy a nice cake or bake/cook something nice. My parents didn't bother doing anything special last Eid but I made chocolate mousse and that went down really well- made it feel like it was Eid.
