Eid ul Fitr 1438

    We praise Allah, Most Exalted, and thank Him for blessing us to complete the month of Ramadhan. May He accept the prayers of those who stood humbly before him in the nights, and the actions of those who fasted for Him in the long days.

    The fasting Muslim has two occasions of happiness: when he brakes his fast and when he meets his Lord; one is a worldly happiness and the other is the everlasting one where he shall be addressed thus,

    'Eat and drink at ease for that which you have sent forth before you in the days past.' [Q 69:24].

    Ummah Welfare Trust takes this opportunity to also express its gratitude to you donors, who have displayed the spirit of generosity by almost £12 million this Ramadhan to help our needy brothers and sisters across the Ummah. May Allah accept it, and may it be returned to you manifold.

    Alhamdulillah, today is a day of eating and drinking; of gratitude and dhikr. Let us use this day to renew ties with our families, friends, brothers and neighbours. Let us rise above any rancour and brings our hearts together.

    JazakumAllahu Khayra. May Allah accept it from us and from you.
