Eid Murbarak

EID Mubarak (happy EID)!!!

The month of fasting ends tomorrow, Friday, and we celebrate Saturday, lots of eating and meeting old friends. This particular month of fasting has just flown by for me.
Wikpedia has a good description of what goes on, on EID:

"The Eid prayer (salah) is followed by the khutba (sermon) and then a prayer (dua') asking for forgiveness, mercy and help for the plight of Muslims across the world. It is then customary to embrace the persons sitting on either side of oneself as well as ones relatives, friends and acquaintances.
Muslims spend the day thanking the Creator for all their blessings, as well as simply having fun and enjoying themselves. Children are normally given gifts or money."

Wishing peace, joy, wisdom and happiness to all; may ALLAH's blessings be with you on this special day and always!
