US: Stamp with Arabic inscription

Philip Terzian writes: "The Eid stamp you refer to was issued shortly BEFORE Sept. 11, 2001 in recognition of thr growing number of Muslims in America, not Arabs". I did not give its date, but that it was issued just before 9/11 is tragically ironic. Presumably even Muslims who do not know Arabic would recognize that it was Arabic. What does EID mean(? We await Ed Jajko's comments.
