At the end of Ramadan, Muslims celebrate the breaking of the month-long fast with an holiday, ‘Eid-ul-Fitr, the Festival of Fast-Breaking.
Eid al-Fitr also called the “Festival of Breaking the Fast”, is an important religious holiday celebrated by Muslims worldwide that marks the end of Ramadan, the Islamic holy month of fasting (ṣawm).
This religious Eid (Muslim religious festival) is the first and only day in the month of Shawwal during which Muslims are not permitted to fast.
Muslims believe that they are commanded by God, as mentioned in the Holy Quran, to continue their fast until the last day of Ramadan and pay the Zakat al-Fitr before offering the Eid prayers.
Therefore, as Muslims gather together today to observe this command of Allah as one essential pillar of Islam, Rt. Hon. Faleke prays that the Almighty Allah will accept the Fasting, Supplications and Prayers of all the Muslim Faithfuls as an act of ibadah.
Happy Eld- Mubarak to you all and let’s ensure that the hand of fellowship is extended to those who might need our assistance one way or the other during this year’s celebration.
Service to the people continues
