In the name of God, Compassionate, Merciful بسم الله الرحمن الرحيمِ | Peace be with you السلام عليكم


In the name of God, compassionate & merciful بِسْمِ اللهِ الرَّحْمنِ الرَّحِيمِ | Peace be with you السلام عليكم

As a change from my annual mass Eid ul Fitr greeting card post tradition I sent an Eid card to almost every single "friend" I have on social networking sites. Facebook, Twitter, Myspace, Blogger, even Muxlim of which I am a moderator -mile wide authoritative grin- Here are some of the photo replies I received *very happy*.

Somia Zaman; UK, I work with Somia on the website Muslims In England.
I think every writer on MIE received a card from me - if you're reading this MIE team and you didn't receive one, my bad, I still like you.


Juliana Hebenstreit; USA, I like to call Jules The Fairy, she knows why. I sent her a few English sweets, beads, ear-rings, a book for her delightful sister (it was her birthday) and other random stuff like henna. The chocolate melted and one of the gingerbread was disabled, boo.

Nawaz Ali; USA, we're Facebook buddies, yayy.

The caption Nawaz used for this photo made me smirk:
"Oh yeah, he can't stand. he has to take some support. He lost his leg on his way to Chicago.
And yeah, I am going to sue USPS and ROYAL MAIL for breaking his leg :P"

I have a really sweet friend on Muxlim - Susi Lawati, from Indonesia who received my Eid gift packet a wee bit late (stupid postal service) but! she photographed it and uploaded it online. How utterly cool. The original post is on Muxlim here.

"Zaufieeee!! if u read this thank you for the packet (^.^) like ur pic there btw,

Awesome eid card and Mr. Ginger Man, the post man broke it. I think he need surgery hehehehe joking.


As it was international delivery I sent her a smallish parcel: a handmade Eid card, home baked ginger bread men and European Kinder chocolate bars.

Long live the world where every gingerbread man gets interrogated, the mail arrives 2wks late and text messaging 'Eid Mubarak' is deemed "so 1998".
