Hi Friends πŸ˜€

Today is a Special day, we call it

Eid ul-Fitr aka Eid

I would like to wish you all…

Eid-Mubarak

Yes! Eid Mubarak (means, have a blessed Eid)

What is Eid ul-Fitr? Hope you all remember my post on Ramadan. Eid is a muslim holiday that marks the end of Ramadan. Eid means ‘festivity’ and Fitr means ‘ to break fast’, so Eid holiday symbolizes the ending of the fasting period andΒ is celebrated on the first day, after the end of the Islamic month of Ramadan.

Eid ul-Fitr is a day long celebration and is also known as the “Smaller Eid”. The “Greater Eid” is Eid al-Adha “Festival of Sacrifice” celebrated worldwide to commemorate the willingness of Ibrahim to sacrifice his son Ismael as an act of obedience to God. Lets talk about it later..

So I would like to wish you all ‘Eid Mubarak’. If you feel like wishing me back, just say/type in ‘Eid Mubarak’

Have a great day πŸ˜€

    That is a very stunning billboard. Very effective advertising I would say.
    Eid Mubarak! though I fail to understand why you would want to celebrate the fact that someone was willing to sacrifice is own son. Maybe one day you will explain.
