COLOMBO: I extend my congratulations to the Muslim community in Sri Lanka who are celebrating Eid-ul-Fitr with Muslims all over the world.
During the most important month of the Muslim calendar, it is a great task for all of you to take a spiritual step away from worldly life in order to understand life.
Your goal is to achieve an ideal life by focusing only on the good deeds during the fasting month of Ramadan. Therefore, it is commendable that during the fasting period of Ramadan, you do focus only on good deeds.
Understanding the pain of a starving person and the value of charity are the precious life values gained during fasting.
You have successfully completed the fasting period of Ramadan following the noble virtues associated with fasting according to the Qur’an and it is my belief that now the opportunity is yours to socialize its spiritual essence.
I urge all of you to be sensitive and generous to other people in the society at this time when the whole country has started to face a challenging time.Happy Eid-UI-Fitr to you all with the blessings of Allah!
