Reisu-l-ulema Dr. Mustafa Ceric issued today the Eid Mubarak greetings. In Reisu-l-ulemaâ€™s greetings, he says:
Dear brothers and sisters,
Hajj is a sacrifice, within which man comprehends what his place in the universal world, Arefat, where the first man realized his place upon Earth, is. That is a homeland journey of man who, through his own witnessing, finds the universal reason of life, and who, in the Godâ€™s message Qurâ€™an, finds hope for own redemption.
Sacrifice is the manâ€™s journey in getting closer to the Creator, as is a prayer the sacrifice of every religious person, or, in other words, every religious person wants to get closer to his Lord through prayer. For he, who is close to God, is close to man who needs human love and help.
Therefore, wish upon your brother what you wish upon yourself!
Be a support to your brother and he will be a support to you!
The dearest deed, to God, is that man gifts happiness to his brother!
The best of the virtues of observance is to renew the ties to family and friends, to give gift to the one who angered you, to forgive the one who did injustice to you!
Therefore, Eid Mubarak is the festivity of an individual, a family, and the universal being of Muslims. The essential message is for man to get closer to Allah, dz.s., by way of sacrifice of kurban, which has, as its goal, to help mankind. Therefore, faith is, in essence, that people get closer in love and good deeds. So it is important that in this Eid Mubarak, again, we be together, we forgive one another, we help each other, especially those among us who are elderly, weak and ill. Let trust be among us and let there be the rule of peace and goodwill in all of the world.
To all Muslims, those who today walk in prayer around the Kaba, and to those who are at their homes gathered around the sacrificial lamb, I wish, from my heart, a happy Eid Mubarak, all the while praying to dear Allah (dz.s.) for their health and success in life and work. I extend special greetings to the refugees, the sick and powerless, with submission to the Creator Almighty to help them! Personal greetings to our brothers in Croatia, Slovenia, Sanjak, Kosova, Macedonia, Montenegro, Serbia, and the Bosnian Diaspora and all of the Muslims in the world:
BAJRAM SERIF MUBAREK OLSUN!
