Dear Brothers and Sisters in Islam!
Assalamu Alaykum wa Rahmat Allahu wa Barakatuhu,
On behalf of the Islamic Conference Youth Forum for Dialogue and Cooperation we are glad to congratulate you on 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 attain righteousness, peace and prosperity for our families, loved ones and the Ummah at large. Many Muslims have undergone the sublimation by influence of this Holy Month and chosen the right way in their lives and we hope that our brothers and sisters, in particular young people will keep the outstanding influence of this month as guidance of purity in the year until the next Ramadan.
While the Islamic Ummah is celebrating this joyful occasion, we have also to keep in mind our Muslim sisters and brothers in many countries and parts of the world who have been denied the joy of Eid celebrations as a result of aggression, poverty, natural catastrophes and who look to us for assistance. We call all Muslims of the world to make dua\’s for our brothers in religion in Arakan (Myanmar), victims of the earthquake in Iran, our brothers and sisters in Syria and millions of Muslims suffering in other parts of the world. We would like to express our strong belief that aggressions towards the Islamic lands should be stopped and our sisters and brothers suffered from the occupation in Palestine, Karabakh (Azerbaijan), and other different places of the world should return to the normal life. Thus the occasion of Eid Ul Fitr requires from us to give concrete meaning to the ideal of Islamic solidarity towards all of our suffering sisters and brothers, in its most sublime manifestation.
Wishing to all our Members, supporters and friends as well as all brothers and sisters in Islam best of the health, lots of happiness, peace and prosperity we are looking forward to continue our cooperation with you for the sake of development of Muslim youth, of strengthening peace and understanding between cultures and civilizations.
Let us join our prayers to The Almighty Allah Ta\’ala to accept our spiritual efforts during the Holy Ramadan, to bless all our good deeds with the virtues of success and achievement, to provide us with His assistance and support.
Wassalamu Alaykum wa rahmat Allahu wa Barakatuhu,
