We’ve made sacrifices.
Sacrifices with prayers.
Prayers for good lives and moments,
For good wishes and desires.
To attain our heartfelt dreams.
The dreams we weave in empty moments.
Our conceits of purity and piety in chill times,
That leads to rebirth of good minds and merits,
As exampled by Abraham, father of faith,
Are not only the real teachings of Eid,
But the true way of celebrating Eid.
Spread cheers, share your happiness,
Make friends, bridge the gap,
Give gifts and care for the needy,
Enjoy the day, engage in alms,
Enable peace and love today and everyday!
