Dear fellow countrymen!
I cordially congratulate You on the occasion of Eid ul-Fitr and extend my most sincere wishes to everyone.
An auspicious month of Ramadan in which holy Qur`an, depository of divine truths, was sent down, calls upon people for unity in the name of wonderful intentions and good deeds, invites them to follow the path of peace, fraternity and equality.
In this month, Muslims get an opportunity to worthily do their duty of conscience and obligations to Allah and religion, experience the joy of victory of spiritual-moral perfection over temptations.
Just as every year, our people see off the holy month of Ramadan this year with the feeling of pride and joy. Our citizens, who honorably stood the test of fasting, delightedly share the festive joy of the holiday with wishes of prosperity and progress to our state expressed and prayers for the peace of our shahids’ immortal souls said. I believe prayers and wishes uttered by you on these holy days and good intentions will be heard in the kingdom of the Creator and the Maker will spare no mercy on our people.
My dear brothers and sisters!
Eid ul-Fitr illuminating hearts and souls with divine truths demonstrates the triumph of national-spiritual solidarity, humanity, feelings of compassion and mercy in our society. On this precious day, I one more offer my felicitations on the holiday to you and your compatriots living in various corners of the globe and wishes for happiness to your families, and abundance and prosperity to your homes.
May Allah accept your fasting!
President of the Republic of Azerbaijan
