EID MUBARAK & Eid Ka Dastarkhwan

The word ‘Eid is an Arabic name  meaning festivity, celebration, happiness.
EID-AL-FITR is celebrated at the completion of Ramadan. On this day we thank Allah for giving us the will, strength & endurance to observe fast and obey His commandment during the entire holy month of Ramadan.
Eid brings rejoice & happiness. The rejoicing is not, however, at the departure of the month of Ramadan; it is the happiness which man feels after successfully completing an important task. In all it is the time to spend with family & your loved ones.

EID MUBARAK TO ALL OF YOU  who have been with me through this entire month.
