Eid Al-Fitr – A.H. 1427 A.D. 2006
General Secretary of All Ceylon Jamiyyathul Ulama
Once again the Holy Month of Ramadhan departed us, leaving the divine message of sacrifice – sacrificing human passions for Allah’s sake – sacrificing egoism for the sake of the community and sacrificing one’s avarice for the fellow human being’s sake. It is the same message it always leaves behind when it departs us year after year. It is the expectation of our Creator that this message be honoured and practiced.
It is time for us to enjoy food and all other things that we, for the passed one month, have been abstaining from during the day; likewise it is time for us to put into practice whatever we learned during the whole holy month – tolerance, mutual understanding, generosity, etc.
A significantly large sector of the community still endures untold suffering in Muttur, Thoppur and in refugee camps elsewhere in the country and generous hands are to be extended further to ensure that they too have sufficient provisions to eat and wear. To a certain extent, there is no doubt that this noble deed was done by the benevolent brothers and sisters. However, such deed should continue without a break. It is the way of Islam to fight against poverty and starvation. Every Muslim bears the obligation to provide handouts to his poor brothers; so that they do not happen to go to Masjids on an empty stomach in shabby clothes on the day of festival.
While warmly wishing all the brothers and sisters a happy Eid on my behalf and on behalf of All Ceylon Jamiyyathul Ulama, I appeal to them not to limit their generosity to the holy month of Ramadhan but to keep it going without a stop.
May Allah, Most Gracious shower His mercy on all of us!
