Ramadan ends, Eid Mubarak!

Posted in Personal Updates by Faiz Wahid on September 19, 2009

Today is the last day of the holy month of Ramadan. By God’s grace, after a month long fasting, Muslim’s all around US & EMEA will celebrate the festival of Eid tomorrow.

I’m a bit sad, as my entire family is back home in India. But, nevertheless, there’s a good bunch of people in my 2nd year MBA class at Darden with whom I’ll be going for the Eid prayers tomorrow morning at the local Buford Middle School.

In the afternoon, there is a lecture from Nobel Laureate Muhammad Yunus at the University Hall organized by the University of Virginia. This event is free and open to the public.

Here is the link to the local mosque in Charlottesville.

That’s insane!
