EID UL-ADHA: MESSAGE FROM THE PRIME MINISTER OF AUSTRALIA
I send my warm greetings to Muslims in Australia and all around the world who are celebrating Eid ul-Adha and performing the Hajj this year.
Muslim Australians are among the millions of pilgrims undertaking the annual Hajj, which honours the sacrifice and devotion of Abraham and serves as a reminder of the shared Abrahamic roots of Islam, Judaism and Christianity.
During the Eid ul-Adha holiday, Muslims of all ages and backgrounds commemorate the prophethood of Abraham through acts of charity and praying for those in need.
Australia is the most successful and harmonious multicultural society in the world.The Australian Muslim community plays an important role in strengthening our diverse social fabric.
I send my best wishes to everyone celebrating Eid ul-Adha.
Eid Mubarak and Hajj Mabrour.
The Hon Malcolm Turnbull MP
Prime Minister of Australia
