ramadan feast

The IFIS&IZ wishes a blessed and happy Eid al-Fitr (Feast of Ramadan)

On the occasion of the Feast of Breaking the Fast (Arabic: Eid al-Fitr; Turkish: Ramazan Bayramı) the IFIS&IZ wishes all Muslims blessed, peaceful, harmonious and joyful celebrations in the presence of the family, friends, and neighbours.

Muslims celebrate the ending of Ramadan by a three-days lasting festival called Eid al-Fitr. The festival is considered as a reward for the one-month enduring fasting and abstinence, patience, surrender and reliance.

The Feast of Ramadan and the Eid Al-Adha are the most important celebrated occassions in Islam. These days are perceived as a time of happyness and solidarity and reconciliation. During Ramadan Muslims had the opportunity to understand and to perceive the value of a peaceful together, good-neigbourliness and solidarity. The fast-breaking ceremony in the evenings have become also a social event in which new friendships have been established and existing have been intensified. Beyond the social aspectst the holy month of Ramadan was a time in which each indidivual could practise self-discipline and spiritual purification. Ramadan gave us the opportunitiy to feel the presence and nearness to Allah and to review our tasks and role towards the Creator and humankind.

By doing good deeds and turning away of bad habits we have adopted the universal values of Islam. It is now necessary to sustain with this values also after the month of Ramadan for the whole life. The Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) recommends in this regard: “The deeds most loved by Allah are those done regularly, even if they are small.” (al-Bukhārī, Īmān, 32; Muslim, Misāfirīn, 221)

In the hope of that all our fasting and prayers were accepted we wish all Muslims in Germany and the whole Muslim world a blessed Ramadan feast! May the festival contribute to unity, peace, reconciliation among the people.
