(as you westerners by now know the difference between sunni and shia
muslims thanks to the war in Iraq) well sunnis apparently celebrated yesterday , and today shia start their's.
Thanks to that we always had in lebanon 4 days adha because we start with sunnis for 3 days then shias start the next day of sunnis so we gain one day extra ... do you get what i mean? i am confused
aren't they just muslims..???
anyways i wish u happy eid ( i.e: xmas for the muslims) coinciding with the start of the new year 2007 ... is this significant ..?? is this a holy sign ???
Ya mami ,... i am freaking out thinking mentally now about the whole region...
isn't it so ironic that saddam was hanged on the first day of eid for some muslims (i.e sunnis started yesterday as u know by now) , and the start of a new middle east ...???
let me be poetic now : ' are we going to EVER have a peaceful middle east ?'
blahblahbla burghhhghburghh yuk yuk yuk....
With this thought i will leave you to celebrate a very peaceful
and forgiving and maturing new year
wealth ( that would be good no?)
people you love
new year of love...
have a great new year
here is a cartoon by Imad Hajjaj about the state of the arab nation on this day of the eid ...
Translation :(sheep is the arab nation)
and whoever does not know about adha well in short (by wikipedia:
Eid ul-Adha (Arabic: عيد الأضحى ‘Īdul’aḍḥā), or Eid-e Qurban (Persian: عید قربان Eide Ghorbân) occurs on the tenth day of the Islamic month of Dhul Hijja. It is one of two Eid festivals that Muslims celebrate. Eid ul-Adha is celebrated by Muslims worldwide as a commemoration of Prophet Ibrahim's willingness to sacrifice his son Ismael for God. Others celebrate Eid ul-Adha as it marks the end of the Pilgrimage or Hajj for the millions of Muslims who make the trip to Mecca each year. Like Eid ul-Fitr, Eid ul-Adha also begins with a short prayer followed by a khutba. In Mecca, the khutba is delivered at Mount Arafat.
It is celebrated on the 10th day of the month of Dhul Hijja (ذو الحجة) of the lunar Islamic calendar, after Hajj, the annual pilgrimage to Mecca in Saudi Arabia. This happens to be approximately 70 days after the end of the month of Ramadan.
Eid ul-Adha is four days long starting the day after the pilgrims in hajj (annual pilgrimage to Mecca by Muslims world wide) descend from mount Arafat.)
happy eid ...... ( oups it is 4 days usually anyways??) yes it is ... hehhehe so in eid sunnis and muslims are one??? ) ahhh
