    very beautiful post…Eid is commended in the primary day of the long stretch of Shawwal. It is a blessing from Allah to his kin for fasting for the entire month of Ramadan. War is prohibited on specific months and this month is among them. ([Shawwal]] is the tenth month of Islamic timetable.

    As-salaam-alaikum, Thank you for sharing these very interesting points. I was curious to know if the grave of the Prophet (p) and the 2 companions (ra) can be accessed (even if they are closed to the general public).
