Eid ul-Fitr 2014: A Celebration At The End Of Ramadan (Hufftington Post)

28 Jul

I want to wish dear friends Eid Mubarak and a blessed Eid!

Please follow this Huff post link for pictures celebrating and marking the end of holy month of Ramadhan.  According to the article ” According to a hadith attributed to Anas ibn Malik, a companion of the Prophet Muhammad, the two festivals of Eid al-Fitr and Eid al-Adha were instituted by the Prophet after his journey from Mecca to Medinah.“When the Prophet arrived in Medinah, he found people celebrated two specific days in which they used to entertain themselves with recreation and merriment. He asked them about the nature of these festivities to which they replied that these days were occasions of fun and recreation. At this, the Prophet remarked that the Almighty has fixed two days [of festivity] instead of these for you which are better than these: Eid al-Fitr and Eid al-Adha. ”

I have been haunted by images of mindless brutality of Gaza strip. I think humanity is less than human now… hope the cease fire leads to a lasting truce.

This Huff post pictorial album has palestinian vendors selling balloons in North Gaza strip. It’s ironical. I also liked pictures from Pakistan, women and girls buying colorful bangles and applying henna on their hands. I like these colorful bazaars ( markets).

On this happy day would like to wish my friends and loved ones Eid Mubarak!

Hope you have a lovely day dear freinds! Love and peace! Thank you!
