Greetings on Eid…



Eid Mubarak !!

It is festive time all over the world for Muslims !! Greetings to all my readers on this festive occasion.

Eid-ul-Fitr, "often abbreviated to Eid, is a big festival of Muslims  that marks the end of Ramazan, the Islamic holy month of fasting . The religious Eid is a single day, but it is usually celebrated for 3 days. Eid is an Arabic word meaning "festivity", while Fiṭr means "breaking the fast". The holiday celebrates the conclusion of the 29 or 30 days of dawn-to-sunset fasting during the entire month of Ramazan. The first day of Eid, therefore, falls on the first day of the month Shawwal. This is a day where Muslims around the world try to show a common goal of unity.

This  Eid stamp shown above was issued by US Postal service on 12 August 2011 features the Arabic phrase Eid Mubarak in gold calligraphy on a reddish background. Eid mubarak translates literally as “blessed festival,”
