Eid Mubarak!

Happy Eid to all Muslims around the world! I hope you all slay with your amazing Eid clothes that you spent weeks picking, hope you receive a lot of money and be rich, may you have a blessed and joyful Eid, well spent with family, friends, and loved ones.

And Happy Eid to those without families, to those who can’t celebrate it for personal reasons, to those who try to celebrate it despite dealing with mental/physical illness. Happy Eid to who are living in a state of war. Happy Eid to those who live in a country that doesn’t celebrate Eid. And Happy Eid to every Muslim no matter who and where you are. Have a blessed Eid!
