Joyful Art by Georgia O’Keeffe

A day to be joyful for all Muslim around the world!!!

Today is Hari Raya, it’s the start of the new month Shawal in the Islam calendar. Hari Raya is celebrated after the month of Ramadan in which all Muslims (who are capable of) are required to puasa (fast). It’s a bit sad that the month Ramadhan have ended coz in this month all good deed are given twice the pahala (credit) as compared to what one get in any other month. I really hope I ‘ll be given the change to see next Ramadan.

Hari Raya is the time to ask for forgiveness from family, relatives and friends for all the wrong things done and to start fresh….so I would like to take this chance to ask forgiveness from all of my readers. May you all be blessed by GOD!! ..

For this entry I would like to feature a woman artist. She is non other than the famous Georgia O’Keeffe and here is her biography.
