IRAQ. Baghdad governorate. Karrada. July 9, 2016. Asal Ahmed, 4, is carried by her father at the scene of a massive suicide bomb attack that killed more than 320 people, making it the second most lethal suicide bombing in Iraqi history. Asal and her mother were badly burned as they shopped for the Muslim holiday of Eid al-Fitr. Karrada is one of Baghdad’s most religiously diverse districts, with a Shia majority and a significant Christian population made of various sects. ISIS claimed responsibility for the attack.
I would like to wish all of my religious and/or foreign followers happy holidays!

I wore this morrocan kaftan style from morroco which I got when I went on holiday ! I paired it with a white hijab and the MAC lipstick ‘captive’ to go for the light princessy feel! Also I was told i look like the Muslim sleeping beauty 😂😂 I loved my dress! What do you guys think? Xx
Two Muslim holidays — Eid al-Fitr and Eid al-Adha — will now be added to the calendar for over 200 schools operated by the Philadelphia School District, making it the second major city after New York City to do so. For many American Muslims, celebrating Eid al-Fitr and Eid al-Adha isn’t always a practical option.
