AIFD wishes Muslims around the world “Eid Mubarak”!
AIFD wishes Muslims around the world “Eid Mubarak”(a blessed holiday) as today, we celebrate Eid al-Fitr, (the holiday of the feast) the celebration marking the close of Ramadan.
As our community celebrates Eid al-Fitr we will continue to hold a place in our hearts and our prayers for all those who were victimized by the paradoxical and dismaying increase in jihadist violence during this holy time of Ramadan. This month we prayed for all those lost and injured in Manchester, UK, and London Bridge, Kabul, Baghdad and in Flint, Michigan. We also remember the Muslims terrorized on their way home from prayer in Finsbury Park, London and for the countless others of all faiths and those of no faith, who were bullied, persecuted, tortured or worse because of what they hold true in their hearts.
We hope that this is a time that will allow us to come into a renewed sense of spiritual solace. A time where we will rededicate our families, our purpose, our organizations, our non-profits, our faith in our country, our duty to protect our nation, and our duty to protect our world from the radical savagery of militant Islamism. Where we will work together to unite against political Islam but also where we will work together for liberty and freedom. It is long overdue.
While the violence being spread by those who wish to radicalize our religion is an atrocity, our faith and our beliefs will only get stronger and our voices will only get louder.
AIFD has had many opportunities to share our mission during this month and we thank those of you have offered your blessings and wishes for continued success and to those who continue to support our efforts through donations, with whom without, we could not exist.
