Balloons, Sweets,
Chocolates, Everything yummy!
Joy and Festivity, In the air!
A celebration for all,
New clothes and dinner tables,
For all the muslims,
Around the globe, Celebrate,
Eid Mubarak!
As for the pilgrims,
They Complete the Hajj ritual,
The difficult, sacred pilgrimage,
Made to the holy city of Makkah,
Upon clean intention,
And the donning of plain white,
Cloths, A submission to ALLAH,
To be a slave and please HIM,
After the very day of Arafa,
As the sacrifice is made,
And the devil is stoned,
Prayers are said in unity and privacy,
Amongst the masses of muslims,
From around the world,
The plea for peace is heard by all,
The mysticity is overwhelming,
At the end- Of the fourth day,
They are tired and happy,
After the purification,
And accomplishment,
Upon the completion,
Of the journey made,
A must for every muslim,
In a mortal's life-time!
