Muslims observe two major holidays: Eid al-Fitr (at the end of the annual fasting month of Ramadan)
, and Eid al-Adha (at the end of the annual pilgrimage
to Mecca). During these times, Muslims give thanks to Allah for His bounty and mercy, celebrate the holy days, and wish each other well. While appropriate words in any language are welcome, there are some traditional or common Arabic greetings that one may use or come across:
- "Kul 'am wa enta bi-khair!"
("May every year find you in good health!")
- "Eid Mubarak!"
- "Eid Saeed!"
- "Taqabbala Allahu minna wa minkum."
("May Allah accept from us, and from you.")
