5 Ways to Say Happy Eid! Posted by on Jun 20, 2017 in Arabic Language, Culture, Grammar, Pronunciation, Vocabulary


As you have learned from the post on Top 10 Facts About Ramadan, this holy month ends with the celebration of Eid al-Fitr (عيد الفطر). Eid (عيد), which means generally holiday in Arabic and which is used to abbreviate the name of the holiday, is a joyous occasion and is celebrated with prayer, family gatherings, lots of good food, new clothes, charity, and abundance of love!

As Muslims around the world celebrate this holiday, they share greetings and exchange tidings. People who cannot be physically together on the day of the Eid use all means of communication they need to send these words of greetings, including letters, phone, emails, and messages.

Today, I want to teach you 5 ways to wish someone a happy and blessed Eid, so you too can exchange Eid greetings at the end of this holy month! I have included translations and transliterations also so you can learn to say these wishes. Hope you enjoy and Eid Mubarak (عيد مبارك) to all who celebrate!

1) Blessed Eid to you and your family!
!عيد مبارك لكم ولعائلاتكم
Eid Mubarak lakum wa-li-‘a’ilatakum!

2) May God’s blessings be showered on you on this Eid al-Fitr.
.لتنزل عليكم بركات الله في عيد الفطر هذا
Litanzil ‘alaykum barakat Allah fi Eid al-Fitr hatha.

3) May you celebrate this every year. Blessed Eid!
!كل عام وانتم بخير. عيد مبارك
Kul ‘am wa-antum bi-khayr. Eid Mubarak!

4) With all the love, blessings, and peace on this joyous day. Happy Eid al-Fitr.
.مع كل الحب، البركات، والسلام في هذا اليوم المجيد. عيد فطر سعيد
Ma‘ kull al-hubb, al-barakat, wa-l-salam fi hatha al-yawm al-majid. Eid Fitr sa‘id!

5) I wish you a very happy Eid, and may all your good deeds be accepted by God.
.أتمنى لكم عيد سعيد جداً! لتكن كل أعمالكم الخيرة مقبولة عند الله
Atamanna lakum Eid sa‘id jiddan! Litakun kul a‘malakum al-khayyira maqbula ‘ind Allah.

Salam everyone! Born as an American to two originally Arab parents, I have been raised and have spent most of my life in Beirut, Lebanon. I have lived my good times and my bad times in Beirut. I was but a young child when I had to learn to share my toys and food with others as we hid from bombs and fighting during the Lebanese Civil War. I feel my connection to Arabic as both a language and culture is severing and so it is with you, my readers and fellow Arabic lovers, and through you that I wish to reestablish this connection by creating one for you.
