Message of RG Mujiv Hataman on the celebration of Eidl Adha
The celebration of the Eidl Adha reminds us of the values cherished and shared by all humanity – the importance of faith, family and community. I pray this occasion brings hope and joy to every family in the region as we join in thoughts and in prayers our brothers and sisters performing the Hajj this year. May The Almighty Allah (SWT) grant their prayers and reward their sacrifices.
The story of Prophet Ibrahim (AS) and his son Ishmael – their submission to the command of Allah (SWT) and willingness to commit the most ultimate act of sacrifice – inspires Muslims to this day. May we also muster the same courage to perform acts of sacrifices needed to get this nation moving forward.
We give life and meaning to the spirit of the Eidl Adha each time we set aside personal comfort and interest for the common good. This celebration reminds us that only when we come together and transcend our biases and apprehensions can we truly overcome the challenges that hound our generation.
A blessed and happy Eid to one and all!
