Dear Sisters and Brothers ,
On behalf of the Islamic Conference Youth Forum for Dialogue and Cooperation, I have the honour to congratulate you all on the occasion of the blessed Eid Ul Fitr Al-Mubarak.
During Holy Month of Ramadan hundreds of millions of Muslims worldwide fasted from dawn to dusk and offered up their prayers to the Allah Almighty to attain righteousness, peace and prosperity for our families, loved ones and the Ummah at large.
Eid of this year unfortunately has come with an immense pain in our hearts and world’s consciousness while humanity catastrophes are continuing in different corners of the Muslim world such as Palestine, Syria, Iraq and Yemen. Hundreds civilians, among them children, women, elders, have been killed, injured and thousands fled their homes. We pray for the souls of martyred Muslims to rest in peace.
While the youth of the Ummah is experiencing the excitement of this Holy Eid, we have also to keep in mind our sisters and brothers in different parts of the world who have been denied the joy of Eld al Fitr as a result of terrorism, aggression, oppression, poverty and war and who continue to strive for the basic rights of freedom and dignity. On these holy days, while offering our duas for the victims of the ongoing conflicts let us renew our commitment to spear no efforts in continuing to educate and empower our youth to stand strong and resourceful in confronting challenges of wars, inter-sectarian schism and under-development.
Wishing to all our Members, supporters and friends best of the health, happiness, peace and prosperity we at ICYF-DC together with all partners in the OIC family and yourselves will continue to work hard for the sake of descent future for our youth, solidarity of Ummah and better tomorrows for all.
