I send my warmest greetings to all Muslims here in the region and elsewhere as we celebrate the Eidl Adha.
The spirit of this celebration reminds us of the values we all cherish and share – the importance of faith, family and community. Prophet Ibrahim’s willingness to sacrifice his son Ishmael on the command of Allah (SWT) forever serves as a compelling lesson and inspiration to us Muslims.
May this occasion bring hope and joy to every family in the region as we join in thoughts and prayers our brothers and sisters performing the Hajj this year. May The Almighty Allah (SWT) accept and reward their prayers and sacrifices.
I hope we will share the blessings of peace, happiness and prosperity in the year ahead. Again, a blessed and happy Eid!
