It’s a whole month of Muslim commemoration: Ramadan! Ramadan changes every year in relation to the western calendar, which means that it can happen in either the summer or winter. Ramadan is intended to serve as a period of reflection, and is a great time to send Eid Mubarak cards to those you care about.

Ramadan comes from the Arabic root word “rmd”, which refers to something hot or scorched; or perhaps in this case to how exhausted Ramadan observers feel at the end. It is signaled by the rising of the first crescent moon, coinciding with the symbol of Islam. Card Gnome’s hand picked Eid Mubarak cards depict the traditional symbols of Ramadan.

The month of Ramadan was chosen as it is commonly believed to be the month in which the Koran was brought down from heaven, prompting many during Ramadan to wish that God had waited another month. Aside from the tradition of fasting, Ramadan is a time for ceremonial Koran readings, organized charitable events, and the traditional sunset feast of Iftar. Ramadan culminates with Eid ul-Fitr, a three day celebration at the end of the month. The final day of this festival is known as the day of Eid, in which the fast ends and it is actually forbidden not to eat, though this is hardly a necessary prohibition for the ravenous Ramadan observers. Eid ul-Fitr (or just Eid for short) is also a time to give small gifts, especially to children, and also a popular time to send greetings and cards of “Eid Mubarak” – blessed Eid. The important thing is that Ramadan is a time for all Muslims to celebrate their religion, from the first fast to the end of Eid, even if they don’t get to go as crazy with the gift giving as the Christians do. Our collection of beautiful Ramadan cards send the message of love and blessings all month. So take some time to send an Eid Mubarak card to loved ones. The best part is, you have all month to do it!
