Eid reflects the spiritual strength of Islam to build an inclusive society


IN the heart of Bangladesh and across the globe, Eid ul-Fitr stands not only as a celebration of the culmination of Ramadan but also as a testament to the enduring spiritual strength of Islam in fostering inclusivity within societies.

As the crescent moon is expected to be sighted, signalling the end of a month of fasting, reflection, and devotion, streets come alive with vibrant festivities, weaving together the diverse fabric of communities in a tapestry of unity.

Eid transcends religious boundaries, encapsulating the essence of communal harmony and solidarity.

Regardless of faith, people come together to partake in the joyous occasion, sharing in the spirit of generosity and compassion.

The aroma of traditional delicacies fills the air, as families exchange greetings and gifts, reinforcing the bonds of kinship and friendship that underpin Bangladeshi society.

Moreover, Eid serves as a reminder of the imperative to extend compassion to the less fortunate.

Through the custom of Zakat, Muslims contribute to charity, ensuring that all members of the community can partake in the festivities, regardless of their socio-economic status.

This ethos of giving underscores the Islamic principle of social justice, laying the foundation for a more equitable and inclusive society.


Beyond Bangladesh, Eid resonates as a global symbol of unity amidst diversity.

From the bustling streets of Cairo to the tranquil villages of Indonesia, Muslims worldwide come together to commemorate the occasion, transcending geographical and cultural boundaries.

In a world often marred by division and discord, Eid serves as a beacon of hope, fostering interfaith understanding and cooperation.

As we celebrate Eid ul-Fitr, let us reaffirm our commitment to building societies that embrace diversity, foster dialogue, and uphold the dignity and rights of all individuals.

Let us draw inspiration from the spirit of Eid to transcend our differences and forge a path towards a more inclusive and harmonious world.

Eid serves as a poignant reminder of the transformative power of spirituality in shaping inclusive societies.

Let us cherish this occasion as an opportunity to come together, celebrate our shared humanity, and strive towards a future where inclusivity reigns supreme.
Eid Mubarak.
