“Eidul Fitr; a sublime religious festival of Islam is observed by Muslims across the world today as a reward from Almighty Allah to faithful for fasting with the spirit of sacrifice; self restraint; and devotion.
This religious festival marks the culmination point of Ramzanul Mubarak and its festivities carries tremendous message for the believers. The core spirit of both Ramazanul Mubarak followed by Eidul Fitr truly stresses observing discipline in routine life; respect for fellow human beings; realize the difficulties which deserving ones have been confronting; and above all to develop the spirit of tolerance; courage and steadfastness in every hour of trial and promote the spirit of brother hood, commitment and unity amongst the society.
Each and every religious ritual of Ramazanul Mubarak followed by Eidul Fitr stresses the faithfuls to be patient, accommodative and tolerant in their routine lives. Keeping in view the prevailing circumstances in our society, there is an extra need to be more generous and make everyone in the surroundings to share the spirit of brotherhood and promote fraternity amongst the fellow human beings.
Special prayers may also be offered for complete success of efforts meant for maintenance of peace and stability; development, prosperity and security of our dear motherland, Pakistan.
