GUELPH — MPP Mike Schreiner released the following statement to mark Eid-al-Adha.
“I would like to extend warm wishes to all those celebrating Eid al-Adha today.
This important day in the Islamic calendar marks the end of the Hajj – the annual pilgrimage to the Kaaba in Mecca. Today, Muslims around the world gather for prayer and celebration with family, friends and neighbours.
The central tenants of Eid al-Adha are values we can all strive toward – generosity, peace, and compassion.
May we all keep making sacrifices to show compassion, peace and charity to those around us.
I wish everyone celebrating a joyful celebration.
