Eid-ul-Fitr Message 2017

Eid-ul-Fitr, which marks the culmination of the fasting month of Ramadan, will be celebrated on Monday. It is expected to begin on the evening of 25 June and end on the evening of 26 June. Several National and World leaders took this chance to wish Muslims across the world. I also would like to take this opportunity to wish all Muslims in Trinidad and Tobago and across the world a happy and safe Eid-ul-Fitr. Trinidad and Tobago being the cosmopolitan society that it is we can safely say that this is not only a Muslim day but a day for the entire Trinidad and Tobago. We invite friends and partake in the delicacies and generous meals offered. We forget political affiliations, party politics and personalities and for a short time all become Trinidad and Tobago citizens. Today I look back at the tragedy of the passing storm and those who have lost so much, I look at the victims of crime and of those faceless and nameless who have suffered in silence. But nonetheless I, as you acknowledge that there is much to be thankful for. Things could be worst and most definitely can be better. I send “warm greetings” to Muslims celebrating the end of the holy month of Ramadan. During this holiday, we are reminded of the importance of mercy, compassion, and goodwill. The holy month of Ramadan was celebrated with devotion. Now it’s time for Eid. On the occasion of Eid-ul-Fitr, my best wishes to all. It’s my pleasure to extend my Eid Mubarak and good wishes to all my Muslim brothers and sisters all over the world on the occasion of the celebration of the Eid after the conclusion of fasting in the blessed month of Ramadan. I pray to Almighty Allah for all the benefits and the rewards.  I would like to pray to Allah the Almighty for myself and for you all, May Allah Subhanahu wa Ta’ala accept our fasting, our prayers, our worship and all our good deeds in the blessed month of Ramadan.
