Is Your Car Ready for the Trip to Eid?


car talk logo So, as you know, ‘Eid is literally right around the corner.

Most of the time, ‘Eid salat is held in a place other than the masjid. That means, you will need to get your vehicle prepped for the trip. Although it will be a short trip for most, it can be a real journey for others. Either way, you don’t want to be hitch-hiking on ‘Eid due to auto difficulties.

And before I forget, please, please, please! Remember the people in your communities who do not have a car and therefore have no way of getting to ‘Eid. Ask around to see if someone needs a ride to and offer it to them.

So, you want to make sure your car has enough of the following:

  • oil
  • gas
  • water (battery, radiator)
  • windshield washer fluid
  • air (in tires)
  • a spare tire or fix-a-flat
  • other (whatever that is for your situation)

If you have been going to the masjid every day during the month of Ramadhan, your car needs some TLC by now. Short trips do the most damage to automobiles.

Finally, if you are having some car troubles, visit the Car Talk website. They even have a radio show you can listen to. Sometimes I listen because the guys are just hilariously funny when answering “my car’s broke down . . . please help” questions. You can tune in online or in the real world (by radio):
