TEHRAN (Press Shia) – Iranian Parliament Speaker Ali Larijani offered his congratulations to Muslim countries on the religious festivity of Eid al-Fitr, marking an end to the holy month of Ramadan.
In separate messages to his counterparts in the Islamic countries on Wednesday, Larijani hailed Eid al-Fitr as the manifestation of the unity and amity among Muslim nations.
He further expressed the hope that the Islamic Ummah (community) would be directed toward a bright future full of prosperity through sympathy and unity.
Larijani also wished his Muslim counterparts health, dignity and pride.
Eid-al-Fitr marks the end of Ramadan, the holiest month in the Islamic calendar.
Also called Feast of Breaking the Fast, Eid al-Fitr is an important religious holiday celebrated by Muslims worldwide.
The solemn festival is a specific day on which Muslims are not permitted to fast.
Muslims do not only celebrate the end of fasting but thank God for the help and strength that He gave them throughout the holy month to help them practice self-control.
The great Eid is also a time of forgiveness, and making amends.
