everyone the most Happy Greetings of Eid al Fitr. May God bless all who have
fasted during this month and may He accept all our Ibada (worship). We
beseech God for His guidance in all our thoughts and actions. May He help
all of us share in the joy of our friends and family. May He help us remember
and feel the suffering of those who are disadvantaged and oppressed so that we
may work to establish peace and justice for all.
Lord! Condemn us not if we forget or fall into error; our Lord! Lay not on us a
burden Like that which Thou didst lay on those before us; Our Lord! Lay not on
us a burden greater than we have strength to bear. Blot out our sins, and grant
us forgiveness. Have mercy on us. Thou art our Protector; Help us against those
who stand against faith.
