Eid Mubarak

Eid Mubrarak to all who are celebrating. May Allah swt accept our fasts and prayers during the month of Ramadan and allow us to live to the next one. I want to extend a special Eid Mubarak to my family in Syria. While they do not have the means to celebrate as extravagantly as most of us do, they are stronger knit as a family and appreciate what little they do have. Keep in mind this Eid those in Syria, Palestine, Egypt, Yemen, Iraq, and Burma have much less than we do and will probably spend their Eid under fire. Each ones oppressors have shown no mercy on them during our holy months and celebrations in the past so who knows if tomorrow (today due to diff time zones) will be any different. Celebrate, but be grateful for what you get and have. Kul 3am wa2antum bikheir lovelies. 💙

It’s easy to lose sight of some of life’s simple pleasures when you’re mired in the politics of a land you’re forbidden to enter. But every now and again we deserve to be reminded of just how beautifully the sea sparkles in the Gaza Strip, or just how high the rainbows over the West Bank’s grassy hills can go, or just how easy it is to visualize the earthy way of life in villages wiped away in 1948.
