Eid Mubarak

On this blessed occasion, we would like to wish you and your families, Eid Mubarak. May your days be filled with joy, happiness, peace and prosperity.

Throughout the Muslim world, there are numerous other greetings for Eid Al Fitr which was used by the Prophet’s companions. As you travel during the holidays, it is interesting to learn about the variations across the Air Arabia network:

 

  • Arab world

In the Arab world, "kul 'am wantum bikhair" (كل عام و أنتم بخير), which means "May you be well with every passing year” is also generally said.

 

  • Bosnia & Herzegovina

Bosnian Muslims also commonly say "Bajram Šerif mubarek olsun"; the response is "Allah razi olsun". Another common Eid greeting by Bosnian Muslims is "Bajram barećula".

 

  • Turkey

Turkish people wish each other happy holidays with Turkish phrases including: "Bayramınız kutlu olsun" ("May your holiday be happy"), "İyi Bayramlar" ("Good Holidays"), and "Bayramınız mübarek olsun" ("May your holiday be blessed").

 

  • India, Pakistan, Afghanistan and Bangladesh

In these countries, Eid Mubarak wishes are very common and often accompanied by hugging three times after the Salat al Eid.

Pashto speakers also use the Eid greeting "May your festival be blessed" (Pashto: اختر دی مبارک سه‎ ; akhtar de nekmregha sha).

Many Bangladeshis may also use the Eid greeting, "Eid's Greetings" (ঈদের শুভেচ্ছা; Eider Shubhechchha).
