Prime Minister’s message for Haj

PMMuslims throughout the world celebrate Haj as a holy pilgrimage undertaken as a sacred religious rite that recalls the sacrifice of Prophet Ibrahim.


Haj festival brings together the global community of Muslims, encouraging them to share a fellowship of compassion and love, empathy and 
co-existence, all of them exemplary qualities that the world can learn much from.

At a time when spiritual guidance and values are needed in our society more than ever, Haj would indeed be a time for reflection and unity not only for Muslims but for all citizens.

May Muslims in Sri Lanka and the world enjoy and celebrate a meaningful Id-ul-Alha.
