About Stamp

Eid Mubarak! The traditional Arabic greeting of “have a blessed Eid” is presented in calligraphy on this stamp for the two most important festivals in the Islamic calendar. Eid al-Fitr and Eid al-Adha are celebrated by Muslims around the world, including more than one million Muslims in Canada.

Eid al-Fitr, the Festival of Breaking the Fast, brings a joyful end to the holy month of Ramadan during which many Muslims fast through the day. Eid al-Adha, the Festival of Sacrifice, marks the end of the pilgrimage to Mecca. Both celebrations can last several days and include congregational prayers, communal feasts, visits with family, the offer of gifts and acts of charity. In 2020, they begin on May 23 and July 30, respectively.

“These festivals are times for celebration and spiritual reflection,” says Dr. Anver M. Emon, Director of the Institute of Islamic Studies at the University of Toronto, who helped ensure the accuracy of the stamp issue. “It is a pleasure to see Canada Post mark these important occasions with a stamp that wishes all Canadians a blessed Eid.”
