Message from Ikebal Adam Patel
President of AFIC
On behalf of the Executive Committee and staff of Muslims Australia – AFIC I wish you all a joyous Eid celebration.
Now as we celebrate this Eid festival, let me wish you, your families and loved ones and friends a fantastic time of celebration.
I congratulate the organizers of this festival on your hard work and determination to present an excellent source of joy and entertainment to so many and at the same time provide an opportunity to engage with the wider community. May Allah SWT grant you continued success with the Multicultural Eid Festival and Fair.
At this time of celebration for Muslims, we should also reflect on the plight of those people in the world who are lacking the basic necessities of food and shelter due to no fault of their own either through natural disaster or acts of war. We remember our brothers and sisters in Pakistan, Palestine, Afghanistan and parts of war ravaged Africa. I request the people of Australia to once again demonstrate their generosity by donating to the many relief efforts for these causes.
