No greetings this time…

I have a hard time greeting Muslims on Eid, and here’s why:

1- There are those who don’t live up to the meaning of Eid or even understand what it stands for.

2- There are those who wake up on Eid and decide to be good… for few hours.

3- And there are those who are suffering so much that greetings would seem an insult to them. Those who live the meaning of Ramadan and Eid every day of their lives.

So forgive me if I don’t greet this year. As a Christian, I think it will also make greetings sound even cheesier and display a total lack of understanding of Islam.

Instead, I will say this: If God and the prophets knew we, as a race, will get to this, they probably would have blessed another planet…

    Is that type of people really exist?
    Inevitably there are lots of people who still can’t understand what is the real meaning of Islam or Christianity, but for me as a Muslim I will be more than happy if someone from different religion would greet me on Eid, especially if it comes from a person like you Mr. Lahoud 🙂
