I hope that everyone celebrating Eid today has happiness and peace.

Tim Farron’s message for Eid

Here is Tim Farron’s message for Eid:

I would like to wish all those celebrating a happy and peaceful Eid.

For those celebrating, Eid will enable many Muslims to reflect on their own personal strength, particularly following the long fasts these summer days bring.

When travelling the country, I am fortunate enough to witness many examples of this strength first hand. Whether it’s in hospitals where thousands of Muslim doctors and nurses continue to provide excellent healthcare despite the increasing pressure our NHS is under.

Or in the countless towns and cities where businesses run by Muslims are driving our economy and overcoming the challenges of Brexit.

Or in mosques up and down the country who are organising charitable initiatives and promoting inter-faith dialogue.

These are just a few examples which make the heinous attack on Finsbury Park not just an attack on worshipers at the Mosque but an attack on us all.

Tim Farron’s message for Eid

Tim Farron Eid messageTim Farron has issued this message for Eid:

As-Salamu Alaykum.

I would like to wish Muslims in the United Kingdom and all over the world a happy Eid.

Eid for Muslims is a time for reflection as we consider the world we live in, and our part in it. In the light of some desperately tragic events, we all need to consider how we can bring about greater togetherness and show humility to one another.

I was keen to emphasise the importance of this, for Britons of all faiths and none, when joining Muslims marking Ramadan at the London Central mosque.

It was clear to me on that visit and throughout Ramadan, the work of so many Muslims who work to transform the lives of those less fortunate, be it through selfless acts of good will and charity.
