New York, 12 September 2016:
Assalam Alaikum. Eid al-Adha is a celebration of sacrifice for the common good, family and community, and compassion and solidarity with the least amongst us. At a time when societies face complex challenges — violent conflict, displacement, division – let us draw on our common humanity to build a better world for all. I wish all Muslims around the world a blessed and peaceful Eid. Eid Mubarak.
