Eid Greetings

FinnBadger sent these stamps some weeks ago, but I thought it could be nice use it to wish Eid Mubarak to people who celebrate it.

I am sorry that there was no way to take a better picture of them. These green and golden stamps looks really nice on the envelope.

More about this issue:
Featuring calligraphy from the 2011 Eid Stamp with a new green background, this issuance commemorates the two most important festivals — or eids — in the Islamic calendar: Eid al-Fitr and Eid al-Adha. On these days, Muslims wish each other Eid Mubarak, the phrase shown in calligraphy on the stamp. Eid Mubaraktranslates literally as “blessed festival” and can be paraphrased “May your religious holiday be blessed.” Artist and calligrapher Mohamed Zakariya worked with art director Phil Jordan to create this design. 

And here you can read about the 2016 Eid stamp.
