Ramadan & Eid Cards

Every Road leads to God if it is a road of Love, Compassion and Charity. Each culture and faith has its own traditions that were originally created so to enable the seekers to find their path to God.

Ramadan is one of these traditions.



Ramadan begins on the night of Sunday, 10 March, and continue through Tuesday, April 9, ending in the celebratory Eid al-Fitr.

As the ninth month of the Islamic lunar calendar, Ramadan holds a sacred place in the hearts of millions worldwide. Its significance transcends mere abstention from food and drink; it is a time of spiritual rejuvenation, self-discipline, and heartfelt connection with the Divine.  (source)

Significance of Ramadan

Ramadan holds paramount importance in Islam, marking the month when the Quran, the holy book of Islam, was revealed to Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him).

Beyond its historical roots, Ramadan serves as a period of intense introspection, purification, and renewal for Muslims. Fasting from dawn until sunset is the most recognizable aspect of Ramadan, but it encompasses much more.

It is a time for increased prayer, charity, and acts of kindness, encapsulating the core tenets of Islam.  (source)

The month of Ramadan is the month of abstinence, the month when one deprives oneself of food, among other things. But beyond fasting itself, this month is a good opportunity to question the “basis and the foundations” of Islamic spiritual practice. Above all, it is a time of solidarity and sharing. Islam is not a dogmatic religion. It is above all an interior step, a “vision of the heart” that allows man to return to the centre of himself. (Source)

This year Muslims observe Ramadan between the night of the 10th of March and the 7th of April. I have always wanted to observe the Ramadan without the fasting. This year, I decided to find alternative ways to observe Ramadan in a way that is truly respectful and beneficial to anyone who understand that all spiritual practices uplift our consciousness and supports us on our journey of unfolding in our Divinity.

I found a few lovely tips that we could all follow to observe Ramadan. Following these simple tips can remind us of the core message of Ramadan (which is rather similar to Lent): It is a time for reflection, withdrawal from the world by not indulging in pleasures like eating, turning your attention within and celebrate your connectedness to the Divine Presence. 

  1. Light a Candle every night before going to bed

Ramadan’s core traditions take place at nighttime. Once upon a time, before electricity, people used oil lanterns as their source of light to help them carry out Ramadan’s nighttime traditions.

2. Write Edi Cards every evening

Eid cards are a great way to celebrate the holiday. You can  use Eid cards to express gratitude to anything the day brought forth. 

3 Charity

Charity and giving are important aspects of Ramadan—and they can be something that your family does together. Your family can choose charities or activities where you can donate your money or your time. Whether you give money to a worthy cause that’s dear to your hearts, conduct a food drive, or volunteer with a local organization, it’s a great way to give more generously during the season.

Ramadan Eid Greeting Card

Eid Cards

Muslims send each other cards at festivals – the two main ones being Id-ul-Adha at the end of Hajj (the great pilgrimage), and Id-ul-Fitr at the end of Ramadan. These cards state the traditional greeting at this time – ‘Happy Festival’ (Eid Mubarak).

During a Blessed Celebration, Happy Eid greetings are exchanged; a traditional Muslim greeting is Eid Mubarak, which means “blessed celebration”.

The word “Eid” means feast or festival. Every year Muslims celebrate both Eid al-Fitr and Eid al-Adha. Eid al-Fitr takes place at the end of Ramadan, and translates as “the festival of the breaking of the fast”. Like Ramadan, it starts with the first sighting of the new moon.

The Arabic word “mubarak” translates as “blessed,” while “Eid” means feast, festival or celebration, so “Eid Mubarak” can literally mean “blessed celebration” or “blessed feast”, although it is widely interpreted as simply wishing somebody a “happy Eid”.

What am I going to do?

Starting tomorrow, on the evening of the 10th of March, I will celebrate each day of Ramadan by lighting a lantern every evening and writing an Eid Mubarak Card stating what I am grateful for each day. I will create this card myself spending some time in silent contemplation while drawing a lantern that holds my prayer of gratitude.
