Eid Mubarak message from the Prime Minister of Australia

As the holy month of Ramadan comes to a close, it is my pleasure to wish Australia’s Muslim community a blessed and joyful Eid al-Fitr.

Ramadan is a month of spiritual renewal and recommitment to the values of gratitude, charity and compassion. 

Eid al-Fitr is a special day to join with family and friends to share a festive meal, exchange gifts and extend the hand of charity. 

From my family to yours, Eid Mubarak

Selamat Hari Raya Aidilfitri From the High Commissioner

As Ramadan comes to an end, I extend a warm Selamat Hari Raya Aidilfitri to all Muslims in Malaysia.

For Muslims in Australia, Malaysia and around the world, the holy month of Ramadan is a special time to reflect on their roles as members of their communities, embrace the spirit of forgiveness and give back to society.

The spirit of Ramadan continues to grow community harmony in Malaysia and around the world. Muslims in Malaysia have opened their arms and welcomed non-Muslim members of their communities to celebrate Iftar with them. The Kuala Lumpur Iftar at the Dataran Merdeka symbolises Malaysia’s commitment to promoting acceptance and tolerance of people of different faiths and backgrounds, embodying the values of the Holy Month.

It has been a pleasure to attend numerous Buka Puasas during this time and I would like to thank all Malaysians who have welcomed me and my colleagues to share in this special Islamic tradition.

May Hari Raya al-Fitri be a joyous celebration of peace, prosperity, good health and wellbeing for you and your loved ones.
