Eid Stamp

Eid Stamp Did you know that in the United States there are many stamps commemorating a variety of religious holidays and events? Except, none of those stamps have ever recognized Islamic holidays or events for the United States' growing Muslim community. However, our sisters at the International Union of Muslim Women, with Sister Aminah Assilmi, are requesting that the U.S. Postmaster General issue a postage stamp marking Eid. This is why we need your help to show the Postmaster General that the entire Muslim community is interested in this proposition.

All you have to do is write a simple letter to the U.S. Postmaster General expressing what it would mean to you if an Eid stamp was issued. Indicate your name, age, city, and state on the letter. If you like, include a drawing showing what the stamp should look like.

Send letters for the U.S. Postmaster General to:

Aminah Assilmi
International Union of Muslim Women
P.O. Box 181194, Fairfield, OH 45018

Tel/Fax: 513-887-0882
E-Mail: (e-mail letters accepted)

We are urging everyone to participate, especially children, Islamic schools, Centers, and Mosques. The U.S. Postmaster General has shown interest in this idea so we need your help. Please share this information with everyone.

WASHINGTON D.C. - In October of 2001, before the month of Ramadan of that year, the Postal Service of the United States brought to light the Eid stamp. This markes the end of a successful campaign led by the American Muslim Council to have a stamp for Ramadan. AMC (American Muslim Council) also took part in the campaign to have a stamp of Malcolm X in 1999.
