Tomorrow marks an important day for our Muslim community as Eid celebrations recognise the end of Ramadan.
Once the moon is sighted this evening, the dawn-to-dusk fasting ends and a one to three day celebration begins.
During this time the Muslim community reminds us of the importance of discipline, humility and charity to the poor.
Thousands of poor people in the Metro benefit from these celebrations as the Muslim community provides hearty meals in abundance as part of a traditional charitable cause.
On behalf of the Office of the Executive Mayor and the Municipality as a whole, I would like to wish all our Muslim residents a joyous and peaceful Eid.
The spirit of humility, discipline and charity to the poor is an example for all.
