Kabul (BNA) Muslims have two religious celebration days and that are Eid-ul-Fitr and Eid-ul-Azha. From all over the world Muslims celebrate both days with their family members, friends and neighboring people.
The people of Afghanistan start preparation for Eid 15 days prior to Eid. Eid-ul-Fitr is marked in Afghanistan with particular traditions and customs as other Muslim countries of the world. The celebration of Eid differs from time to time, from place to place and from family to family and tribe to tribe in Afghanistan. Preparations for celebration of this day which is considered as one of the two key Eids begin by going to markets and buying foodstuffs, clothes and necessary things as shoes, dishes. Moreover, most of families follow their traditions as cleaning homes, buying furniture and new carpets, rugs and other for their homes, buying cookies, candies and others in order to better hospitalize their close relatives, neighbors and friends during the Eid days.
Related to celebration of Eid days and traditions of the people in Afghanistan, Bilgis Hadia has told, “The people of Afghanistan have different customs and traditions as they belong to different tribes in the country, but in Kabul the people in particular women first start cleaning their homes, washing carpets, buying clothes, foodstuffs and dried fruits as pistachio, almond, raisin, pea and others to better welcome guests on Eid days. On night before Eid, families usually cook good food and dishes, while the young girls and children gather together and apply henna to each other’s hands, painting flowers and other designs”. “The Muslim people of Afghanistan as other Islamic countries begin Eid-al-Fitr by going to mosques and worshiping. On first day of Eid, most of men and a number of women go to mosques to perform Eid prayer. After performing the Eid prayer, they return their homes and say to each member of their families a Happy Eid Day”, Bilgis said. 
In the first day after the Eid prayer rituals most of the people visit their nearest relatives and friends and mark the day together and those who are engaged will to their father-in-law’s home and visit their fiancés and spend time with the whole members of the family. Also on the second day and third days of Eid, the people continue visiting their loves ones.  Generally, Eid is very special for children because they collect money as Eidi from their parents and elder people. Some youth usually decide to go to picnic and parks with their friends in order to double their happiness of the Eid. So, generally Eid is celebrated in a very peaceful environment with love around the country.

Kabul (BNA) June 14, coincides with World Blood Donor Day—a day that appreciates those who donate their bloods to rescue the people lives. This day is also coincided with Prof. Karl Landsteiner birthday anniversary, a person that had invented blood groups and won the Nobel Prize. Transfusion of blood and blood products helps save millions of lives every year. It can help patients suffering from life-threatening conditions live longer and with higher quality of life and supports complex medical and surgical procedures. Access to safe and sufficient blood and blood products can help reduce rates of death and disability due to severe bleeding during delivery and after childbirth.
Each day, people, particularly those injure in traffic incidents, people under operations, pregnant women during labor, infants, those injure in terrorist incidents and in battlefields will need blood, as one out of three needs to be injected with blood during his/her life. Currently, despites considerable improvements in medical science, still nothing can replace blood in body of a person. Lack of good alternative with blood and limited duration of storing blood are the issues have caused blood donation to enjoy significant position. Findings suggest that consecutive donation of blood can prevent the donator from heart and different types of other diseases. Blood donation can caused oxygen to be supplied properly, as well as it causes the blood making system to be further operational.
Our war-hit country, Afghanistan needs more volunteer blood donators.
Because, each day, many civilians and soldiers will lose their lives or injure during horrific incidents and in battlefields throughout the country.
In fact, men can donate blood four times and the women three times each year. Today, in 62 countries of the world, blood is voluntarily collected, as the World Health Organization aims to ensure the blood of needy countries until 2020 through this.   Every year on 14 June, countries around the world celebrate World Blood Donor Day (WBDD).

Kabul (BNA) Violence and terror acts and sowing the seed of discord among the religious followers cannot deist our people from their humane commitment that is goodwill, fraternity, and ensuring national unity.
BNA military issues analyst commenting on the issue writes recently Al- Zahra Mosque in 13 precinct of Kabul city was the target of a terror attack. Ferocious and dark hearted terrorists affiliated to IS terrorist group, attacking the prayers in a mosque once again openly showing their hostility to Islam, proved that they do not believe to any humanity and Islamic principles.
Terror attack on Al- Zahra Mosque took place after a series of terrorist attacks that its main target was the mosque and worshipers in the mosque.
If last night terrorists attacked the worshipers in Al- Zahra mosque, two weeks ago, they targeted the funeral ceremony of a compatriot in Badam Bagh area that martyred and injured a number of people while who were fast.
Since, terrorists have never observed and believed Islamic creeds, therefore, they have accelerated their inhumane and ferocious attacks in sacred month of Ramadan. Launching a series of terrorist attacks in Khost, Kandahar, Zabul and Nangarhar mercilessly killed a number of our innocent people while they were fast.
Either Taliban or IS have accepted the responsibility of these ferocious attacks who claim they fight Islam, but in fact they act as the enemies of Islam and achieving their foreign masters evil objectives in the region. In an earlier designed program, the terrorists with instruction of their foreign masters kill our people; damage the infrastructure of the country and trying to sow the seed of religious and ethnic prejudices among our people. We are certain they will never reach this evil aim because Afghan people and the security forces of the country knowing the true nature of terrorist groups resolutely and heroically fighting them to the end and not only rescue  their country but the region and entire world  from the evil of terrorism forever.
