Friday, June 15, 2018

President Cyril Ramaphosa has wished all Muslims a spiritually fulfilling and blessed Eid al-Fitr as they begin their religious celebration.

This, as Muslims celebrate the end of the holy month of Ramadan.

“May Allah bless all our Muslim brothers and sisters and shower them with spiritual blessings, peace and success.

“May this holiday remind us to continue with all good deeds by lending a helping hand to those in need, Eid Mubarak,” said President Ramaphosa.

The three-day joyous holiday of Eid al-Fitr celebrates the conclusion of the holy month of Ramadan. It is a celebration which breaks the fasting and marks the beginning of the 10th month in the Islamic calendar, known as Shawwal. -SAnews.gov.za
