In a video posted on social media he said, “Today, we join Muslim communities in Canada and around the world to celebrate Eid-ul-Azha, which marks the end of the Hajj.”
“Eid-ul-Azha is a time to reflect on lessons of sacrifice and to show compassion to those in need. To mark the occasion, families and friends will gather to feast, attend morning prayers, and give thanks for the blessings they enjoy in life,” he said.
Trudeau added, “For all of us, Eid-ul-Adha is an opportunity to recognize the important contributions the Canadian Muslim community makes to our society, and to celebrate the differences that make us who we are.”
“On behalf of our family, Sophie and I wish all those observing Eid-ul-Azha a wonderful celebration,” Trudeau added.
The holy festival of Eid-ul-Azha is being celebrated in Saudi Arabia, Middle East, Gulf countries, Afghanistan and some other parts of the world today, and in rest of the world today.
