Message from Malcolm Turnbull MP

As Ramadan comes to a close, it is my pleasure to wish Australia’s Muslim community a blessed and joyful Eid-ul-Fitr.

Ramadan is a month of spiritual renewal and recommitment to the values of gratitude, charity and compassion. As you gather with friends and family to welcome the new crescent moon, I hope you find much delight and fulfilment in this sacred celebration.

Eid is also significant as a time to appreciate the freedoms we have to celebrate our various cultural and religious traditions, and to nurture faith from one generation to the next.

Modern Australia has been vastly enriched by the Muslim community and by people of every background and tradition, each contributing their own unique and special thread to the multicultural fabric of our society.

Australians are truly citizens of the world and our shared commitment to respect, inclusion and peace is one of our nation’s defining achievements.

So, as Australia’s diverse Muslim community gathers at this special time, I hope you are inspired and uplifted by these special observances. I wish everyone Eid Mubarak.
