Islamabad, June 04, 2019 (PPI-OT): President Dr Arif Alvi has urged upon the nation to adopt fraternity and compassion in their ranks and work for the progress and prosperity of the country by rising above personal, regional and sectarian biases. In his message, President Alvi felicitated the entire Muslim Ummah and particularly the Pakistani nation on the joyous occasion of Eidul Fitr. President Alvi said the festival of Eidul Fitr carries the essence of Islamic values and traditions, and also symbolizes the religious ethos. The day embodies the message of sacrifice, care, abstinence from ill-doing, and showing welfare and respect for humanity, he added.
The President said Eid is also a day of completion of the month-long training which Muslims undergo during the blessed month of Ramazan. “The training of patience, tolerance, and sacrifice requires us to continue the same practice during the rest of eleven months. Similarly, the day also honours the worshippers and provides an opportunity for their self-accountability,” he said. He prayed to Allah Almighty to guide everyone to follow the tru teachings of Islam and make the motherland a citadel of peace and prosperity.
