Eid Mubarak

The Eid stamp commemorates the two most important festivals in the Islamic calendar: Eid al-Fitr and Eid al-Adha. The "Eid mubarak" phrase, featured in Islamic calligraphy on the stamp, can be paraphrased, "May your religious holiday be blessed." In 2001 Eid al-Adha was celebrated on March 6, and Eid al-Fitr was on December 16. The first of the Muslim lunar month of Shawwal, Eid al-Fitr signifies, "The Feast of Breaking the Fast" and marks the end of Ramadan, the month of fasting. Eid al-Fitr is observed by offering special alms with prayers, feasting, exchanging gifts, and visiting family and friends. Eid al-Adha comes at the end of the annual period of pilgrimage to the holy city of Mecca. The Eid stamp joins the Holiday Celebrations Series.
