Adam Thomson’s message on Eid ul Fitr in Pakistan
Islamabad: Eid-ul-Fitr is a special day for the Muslims to mark end of the holy month of Ramadan – a month of charity, family, contemplation and recitation of the Qur’an.
On behalf of Her Majesty’s Government, the staff at British High Commission in Pakistan and on my own behalf; I am delighted to extend our best wishes to everyone celebrating Eid al-Fitr in Pakistan and around the world. This is my second Eid-ul-Fitr here and I am delighted to join my staff as well as the Muslim community in Pakistan in celebrations of this blissful occasion.
Eid-ul-Fitr is a special day for the Muslims to mark end of the holy month of Ramadan – a month of charity, family, contemplation and recitation of the Qur’an. It is a joyous occasion but also a day of gratitude for the everyday blessings we enjoy in life.
It brings together friends and families, and encourages Muslims to continue the teachings from the month of Ramadan throughout rest of the year, particularly the lessons of giving, charity and tolerance. These shared values are reflected in the generosity that Muslims all over the world and particularly in Britain have shown over the years. Eid al Fitr is a festival that we can all learn from. My best wishes to you and your family. Eid Mubarak!
