‘Let us unite as one nation’

Let us open our hearts this Eid-ul-Fitr festival and give generously to the families who have been unfortunate victims of various attacks in the recent past in our country.

Prophet Muhammed (Sal) has stressed the importance of charity in Islam, particularly during the blessed month of Ramadan. It is therefore the duty of each and every Muslim to extend our hands and our hearts to the affected during their time of grief and loss and share their burden in whatever capacity we can.

Islam teaches us that fasting makes us better people. People who are patient, generous, tolerant, and who don’t speak ill or harm others. We should become people who build a better society. Fasting fosters love peace and brotherhood – three basics that we need to take beyond the month of Ramadan and help restore peace in this nation.

From this blessed day onwards, let us as a nation, forget our differences - look beyond religion, caste and creed, respect each other as brothers and sisters of one country and identify ourselves only as human beings.

Let us emulate the beautiful qualities of our beloved Prophet Muhammed (Peace be upon Him) - his love for the entire humanity, his generous spirit and his patience. Let us come together and celebrate Eid-ul-Fitr as one nation with one voice. A voice of peace and love.

M.H. Abdul Haleem
