The U.S. Postal Service released a new Forever stamp commemorating the two most important festivals in the Islamic calendar – Eid.

The ceremony was held at Dearborn’s Islamic Center of America. The Detroit area is home to one of the country’s largest Muslim populations.

“It’s a tremendous honor to celebrate the diversity of this nation through stamps, Our culture is truly a world culture and stamps allow us to weave together the threads of this diverse nation.” said Derron Bray, Detroit’s executive postmaster for the U.S. Postal Service.

The Eid stamp features gold-coloured calligraphy created by acclaimed calligrapher Mohamed Zakariya from Virginia.

Albert Harp, emeritus trustee at the Islamic Center of America, said he expects more stamps commemorating Islam.

“Stamp collecting is a hobby around the world,” Harp said. “We expect more stamps commemorating the accomplishments Muslims have made to America and the world.”
