Fall of the Pharaohs

Eid heralds the repetition of the 'takbirat', the proclamation that 'Allah is Greatest' – greater than false gods and prideful pharaohs, ancient and modern. Despite massacres committed by arrogant oppressors, history reminds us that we will witness, ultimately, a consummation of God's plan.
