US stamp for Eid

Most US postal stamps bear the pictures of late presidents, statesmen, sports figures, wildlife scenes, inventors and one even bears the word, Love. The US department of posts has just issued a beautifully simple stamp done in calligraphy recognizing Eid which is celebrated by millions of Muslim Americans at the end of the Ramadan fast.

Announcing the "Eid Mubarak" stamp, the US Postal Service noted that the 33-cent stamp commemorates the two most important festivals or eids in the Islamic calendar. The stamp, which is gracefully executed in gold against a blue background, is reminiscent of many great works of Islamic calligraphy.

Designed by calligrapher Mohamed Zakariya, the Eid stamp features the Arabic phrase Eid mubarak which translates as "blessed festival," and can be paraphrased, "May your religious holiday be blessed."

U.S. postage stamps are a reflection of the American experience," said Postmaster General William Henderson, and "inspiring subjects and designs continue to bring history to life."

In November 1999, representatives Dana Rohrabacher, California, and Thomas M. Davis, Virginia, introduced legislation that a U.S. postage stamp should be issued recognizing the Islamic holy month of Ramadan. The resolution noted that there are more than "five million practicing Muslims in the United States, who represent one of the fastest growing segments of American society."
