Friday the 13th for Muslims

Today was Friday the 13th, a day considered extremely unlucky by some in the West. Whatever the origins of this superstition, some Muslims have the opposite view (most are indifferent I guess).

Firstly, Friday is a blessed day for Muslims. A day of prayer and a day to celebrate. If the Eid celebration, once celebrated right after Ramadan and again at the time of the Hajj, falls on this day, it is considered a greater Eid.

As for the numeral 13, though it doesn't have any big significance associated with it, 13th of Rajab is the birth of Imam Ali (A.S.). (today, 19th of Ramadan however, is a day of mourning. The day he was struck down to be martyred two days later).
