July 5, 2016 – Eidul Fitr
As Eidul Fitr approaches, marking the end of Ramadan, I would like to offer warm regards to all who are observing this religious holiday.
The right to worship and observe the tenets of one’s faith is a basic right and is protected by the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms.
After spending a month on a stringent lifestyle and self-cleansing during Ramadan, Muslims start sighting the crescent moon after sunset on the last day of the holy month.
Eidul Fitr, marks the end of the holy month of Ramadan and the spiritual enlightenment gained through fasting. It is a time to celebrate with family and friends and to make peace with ones fellow man. It is also important to celebrate the peace and security that we share as a nation.
Eidul Fitr Mubarak.
