This coming Eid (Eid-ul-Fitr) is being celebrated in Pakistan amidst mixed emotions as it has come at a time when the floods have displaced, and left millions of people homeless. In this time of sheer distress and catastrophe we must not forget our brothers and sisters in Pakistan.
Let at this moment when flood is wreaking havoc but we as a Nation with our zealous spirit and doggedness try to surmount this colossal loss and turn it into a meager hiccup by donations and demonstrations of fraternity to our grieving Brothers, Sisters and Children in this hour of help. (We must extend our EID celebrations to the flood affectees by the spirit of sharing. Let’s not forget the oppressed Muslims of Jammu Kashmir and Palestine, who are fighting for their freedom). May Allah shower His choicest Blessings on Pakistan. (Ameen).
May Allah (SWT) bless us with the needed breakthrough.
