My warmest greetings to our Muslim brothers and sisters observing Eid al-Adha or the Feast of Sacrifice.
This occasion, which commemorates the personal sacrifice of Ibrahim in obeying Allah’s command, serves not only to deepen our faith but also reminds us of the values of selflessness and hope that would bind us together in building a society with mutual respect, harmony, and understanding.
Let us reach out to one another, set aside our differences, and join hands to overcome the great challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic that we as a people are facing at this time.
May Allah grant you and your family peace and happiness. May all your sacrifices be rewarded.
Eid al-Adha Mubarak!
