Eid al Fitr Mubarak!

The Empire State Building in New York City is lit green in honor of Eid from August 16-19th, as they traditionally do every year:

Eid al Fitr 2012 – New York City

The most beautiful building in the world, in the greatest city in the world. A true honor every year. If there are any New Yorkers who read this blog, I’d love to see your personal photos of the ESB on Eid today or tomorrow, and share them with your permission.

    This is the way, the Islam makes Itself prove by the deniers all over the world. There is a point to be noted that This is Allah Who’s put the love for Islam in their hearts and they are now lightening their buildings on the name of Eid, on the name of Islam. Here is my love for my religion. I’ve designed a blog having the info about Ramadan. I would appreciate your visits. See ya there.
