Happy Eid!


A little late for many Muslims, I know. But, don't get me started -

All over the world, Muslims manage to agree with the rest of the world on the US dollar as a standard currency, but cannot agree among themsleves on a single day to celebrate Eid.

What a travesty.

Anyway, this Eid, let's pray for a peaceful tomorrow and remind one another that peace never comes to those who cling too tightly to the gifts and pleasures of this earth.
In Surah At- Takathur [people are] taken to task for the materialistic mentality because of which they [remain] occupied in seeking increase in worldly benefits, pleasures, comforts and position, and in vying with one another for abundance of everything until death over[takes] them.
Remember, when you die you take NOTHING with you but your soul.

To Muslims and non-Muslims alike -

Whew! Ramadan came and went without a false flag. Let's hope the remainder of October in America remains as uneventful and that others around the world enjoy peace soon too.

Blessed Eid to you. Don't worry, we'll get there. Keep up the good work you're doing. I have told everybody at work about this site. Hopefully people will reform their value systems, live within their means, and understand what actions are necessary to get us out of this death grip. The power is really in our hands, the question is can we make the sacrifices necessary to bring the hurt to these bloodsuckers?

Blessed Eid:)

Actually its normal to have different days for Eid, simply becuase it depends onthe "sighting of the moon", hence you don't see the moon, it's not Eid the next day... but someone could see it in another country/continent, etc.

Anyhow, I think you might find a post I put up on What I've Learnt From Ramadaan interesting :) look forward to your insight :)

Peace,

Muhammad.

Happy Eid ... I only just found out about Eid, apparently 70 days after Ramadam, coinciding with New Year from what I have looked up. Anyway whenever it is, have a good one
