Well wishes for Muslim communities

President Cyril Ramaphosa has sent his well wishes for a blessed Eid ul Fitr to Muslim communities around South Africa.

Eid ul Fitr marks the end of the holy month of Ramadaan observed by Muslim people around the world.

‘The holy month of Ramadan encompasses spirituality, personal introspection and good deeds that contribute to the wellbeing of Muslims and people other faiths alike. At a time when there is so much wrong with the world, at a time when human suffering, hardship and injustice is laid bare, the spirit of Ramadan inspires us all.

‘May today be a joyous celebration that will sustain the faithful for another year of devotion and social upliftment,’ President Ramaphosa said in a statement on Thursday.

At the beginning of the holy month of Ramadaan in March, President Ramaphosa paid homage to Muslims across the world facing challenging times.

‘We remember that for millions of people, Ramadaan is being observed under conditions of conflict, war, displacement and oppression. Our thoughts and prayer
s go out to the peoples of Palestine, Yemen, Sudan, the eastern Democratic Republic of Congo, Western Sahara, Mali and others – for whom this holy month is a time of great hardship and suffering,’ President Ramaphosa said at the time. – SAnews.gov.za
