It gives us great pleasure to take the opportunity to send our best wishes to you, your family and friends as you celebrate Eid al-Fitr, concluding the month of Ramadan. Eid Mubarak. I hope your family enjoy this blessed occasion, particularly children for whom it is such a joy.
Many of those celebrating Eid al-Fitr celebrate it today, and many more will celebrate tomorrow following the sighting of the moon.
Eid al-Fitr is an important time of intense devotion; of spiritual renewal; of celebration and joy; and a time of thanks. This is a joyous time of celebration and unity, where the Islamic community comes together to pray and celebrate as one, to support those in need, and to promote goodwill and harmony across the world.
Australia is home to just under half a million Muslims, and over 1.6 billion worldwide. Throughout Ramadan this year, the prayers and thoughts of many Australian Muslims have been with all their brothers and sisters, families and friends throughout the world who face uncertainty and unrest. Islamic values such as selflessness, charity, compassion and justice are values all Australians share.
As you celebrate and rejoice in the glory and the graces of Allah, we wish you all the best on this auspicious occasion. Kul ‘am wantum bikhair.
بخير انتم و عام كل
