Shawwal Hilal appeared!
Divine Ramadan month commemorated the first revelation, through a month long divine fasting and ‘giving’ (zakat). It is completed.
[First revelation of Quran to Prophet Muhammad by archangel Gabriel in 610AD at Hira Cave near Makkah.].
Now it is the time for celebration!
Let us celebrate Eid al-Fitr (“feast of breaking of the fast”)…
Eid Mubarak, dear friends!
Get-together, Sharing and Happiness around.
Let it spread across the world, beyond the borders of religion, color and places!
Do you know? The first day of Shawwal (or day of Eid al-fitr), is the only day in Shawwal, Muslims are *not* allowed to fast!
So, no human should go hungry without food today! Let us do our bit for it as a positive gesture along with wishing and celebrating Eid al-fitr!
Keep Smiling, Keep Shining and Stay Blessed! 🙂
