Muslims Advocate for Continued Support  to the Less Fortunate Even After Eid al-Fitr.

Muslims in Ethiopia marked the joyous occasion of Eid al-Fitr, not only as a time for celebration but also as a reminder of the enduring importance of extending support to the needy, transcending the confines of Ramadan.

As worshippers converged at Addis Ababa Stadium to commemorate the 1445th Eid al-Fitr, voices echoed with a resolute call to uphold the timeless values of compassion and generosity that define Ramadan. Jamal Redi, reflecting on the spirit of Ramadan to ENA, emphasized its role as a beacon for Muslims to unite in aiding the less fortunate, sharing their blessings with open hearts.

"For us, Ramadan is more than just fasting," Jamal remarked. "It's a time of collective solidarity, where the bonds of community grow stronger through acts of kindness and charity."

Mubarak Mohammed echoed this sentiment, urging fellow Muslims to continue their charitable endeavors beyond the confines of the holy month. He stressed the need to integrate the ethos of giving into everyday life, transforming it into a societal norm that transcends religious boundaries.

"It's not enough to confine our benevolence to Ramadan alone," Mubarak affirmed. "True charity knows no season; it must permeate every facet of our lives, enriching our communities and fostering empathy and compassion."

Nurselam Hassen joined his voice with theirs, emphasizing the timeless nature of virtuous deeds. "The virtues we uphold during Ramadan should serve as guiding principles throughout the year," Nurselam remarked. "Our commitment to helping others must be unwavering, extending far beyond the confines of a single month."

As Ethiopians celebrated Eid al-Fitr across the nation, the resonance of these sentiments echoed far and wide. From the bustling streets of Addis Ababa to the remotest corners of the country, Muslims gathered in unity, reaffirming their dedication to both spiritual devotion and compassionate action.

The morning prayers, attended by President of the Ethiopian Islamic Affairs Supreme Council Sheikh Haji Ibrahim and esteemed members of the diplomatic community, served as a poignant reminder of the collective commitment to embodying the principles of charity and goodwill, not just during Ramadan, but throughout the year.
