Eid Mubarak!

I extend my best wishes and prayers to you all and your respected families on this happy occasion of Eid ul-Adha. May Allah bring you unlimited joy, happiness, health and boundless success today and always. 

As this blissful occasion arrives, friends, family and neighbours are comming together  to forgive and celebrate with much joy and love. 

But for those who are separated from their loved ones and are less fortunate to celebrate  together – please don’t forget keeping them in our thoughts and prayers.  

Today across the world, people are enduring unimaginable suffering; including my war-torn people most of whom forgot to live for the sake of remaining alive struggling for their survival – while some are left out grieving and mourning in the absence of their loved ones who are not among us anymore. Let’s all pray for a good resolution at this time and always for our own good fate and others in the world at large.

Wishing you and your families on this happy occasion of Eid a very happy moment!

Eid Mubarak!

Abdul served with the Norwegian refugee council (NRC), ActionAid Afghanistan, Daily Outlook Afghanistan group of newspapers, and The Daily Afghanistan Express.
