MESSAGE From The Prime Minister - EID AL-ADHA 2021
Eid Mubarak, to all who are celebrating Eid al-Adha.
I send my best wishes, gratitude and thanks to Australia’s Muslim community for the sacrifices you have made over this past year.
Though we have achieved so much saving lives and livelihoods, many Australians – especially in Sydney and Melbourne – cannot gather and celebrate as they would like.
I know we have asked much of Muslim Australians over this past year with many of your gatherings, celebrations and rituals curtailed, yet you have demonstrated your faith through the sacrifices you have made and the courage and kindness you have shown.
No matter what our creed, we know that faith always finds a way to shine brightly in the darkness – and I know your commitment to each other and to your community shines brightly in cities, suburbs, towns and farms across our land.
I thank you for what you have done, and what you continue to do to protect each other and your fellow Australians. It has not been easy – particularly for families who are separated from each other.
Though in many places this Eid al-Adha we are being tried, we have demonstrated as a country what we can achieve when we all play our part and work together.
No matter where we are in Australia we can all play our part – by answering the call of sacrifice, by staying COVID safe and by getting vaccinated.
I have every confidence that our sacrifices, compassion and support for each other will be rewarded with better times.
The Hon Scott Morrison MP
Prime Minister of Australia
