As Muslims celebrate Eid-ul-Fitr today, which marks the completion of the holy month of Ramadan, the Sheikh Tamim Bin Hamad Foundation (STBHF) conveys its warmest greetings and good wishes to all Muslims in the world. We congratulate Muslims on their sacrifice, devotion, and spiritual renewal during the month of Ramadan.

To the Sheikh Tamim Bin Hamad Foundation, Eid-ul-Fitr is in essence and practice a day of celebration, resilience, reflection, graduation, and spiritual elevation. This is a joyous occasion that marks the end of a month of abstinence and sacrifice. It is a season that brings happiness, peace, prosperity, forgiveness, and the opportunity to re-dedicate ourselves to serve humanity and God.

In a world characterized by so much poverty, injustice, hate and inequity, the message of Eid-ul-Fitr cannot be ignored. The Sheikh Tamim Bin Hamad Foundation has always embraced the call for transformation of society, consistent with the teachings of Islam in which there is peace, love, understanding, and compassion, especially for the less fortunate.

This year’s Eid-ul-Fitr is being observed amidst the ongoing genocide in Palestine and the unrelenting support extended to Israel to carry out the heinous crime and crime against humanity unleashed on the Palestinian population, day-in-and-day-out. We extend our unflinching solidarity to all the victims of the ongoing Israeli aggression, including the recent victims from hospitals, schools and residential homes.

This year’s Eid-ul-Fitr has been deprived of the fanfare it deserves, due to the ceaseless Israeli genocidal attacks on the Palestinian people. There are even reports that Imams and many Muslim institutions in the world have resolved to cancel this year’s Eid celebrations, in solidarity with the innocent Palestinian women, children, and older people caught up in the Israeli genocidal campaign in Palestine.

The Holy Quran says: “So verily, with the hardship, there is relief. Verily, with the hardship, there is relief” [Quran 94:5-6].

Fasting is one of the five pillars of Islam and it was during the month of Ramadan that the Holy Quran was revealed and charity was urged. As this significant occasion is being observed, it allows an opportune moment for reflection on its pertinent messages which have relevance for all mankind. It embodies the virtues of sacrifice, generosity, and charity and brings peace and unity.

As Ramadan culminates with the feast of Eid-ul-Fitr, deprivation through fasting brings sympathy and appreciation of the sufferings of others while charity teaches to give rather than expect. These values of humanity are of extreme importance in helping to sustain our environment and build a better world.

We pray to the Almighty Allah (SWT) to put to an end the Israeli genocidal war against the Palestinian people. Most importantly, we need to put in prayers for those who risked their lives on the front line to protect the innocent and unarmed Palestinian women, children, and older people; the physicians, nurses, doctors, clinicians, psychotherapists, and other critical social workers. These are the true agents of hope and dignity.

The Sheikh Tamim Bin Hamad Foundation wishes to draw from the rich virtues of this occasion to reiterate that, sacrifices bring success and that hope is alive and must never be lost. Once again the Sheikh Tamim Bin Hamad Foundation extends greetings to all Muslims observing this august occasion and wishes them all good health, prosperity, and peace.

Eid Mubarak!
