Today, we the Muslims around the world (in most countries) are celebrating the Eid. The day that we celebrate after a month of fasting. A month of prayers, a month of forgiveness. I wish every the Muslim brothers and sister around the world Eid Mubarak.

The Muslims in Palestine, Chechnya, Iraq, Kashmir and so on. May Allah bless all the Muslims and make the Islamic world better and prosperous.
