KUALA LUMPUR: Deputy Prime Ministers Datuk Seri Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi and Datuk Seri Fadillah Yusof have wished all Muslims in Malaysia "Selamat Hari Raya".

Ahmad Zahid said Hari Raya Aidilfitri should be celebrated in the spirit of togetherness to embrace unity in diversity, regardless of race, religion or culture.

The festival is a celebration of gratitude and togetherness as well as an occasion to celebrate the spirit of caring for and supporting one another, said the Ahmad Zahid, who is also Rural and Regional Development Minister.

Aidilfitri marks the end of Islam's holy month of Ramadan, during which Muslims must observe a ritual daily fast from dawn to dusk.

"Let's celebrate this joyous festivity in the spirit of brotherhood. We must seek forgiveness and avoid meaningless conflicts to ensure peace and harmony prevails. We must be grateful for the prevailing peace that is being enjoyed by all.

"May every step that we take be blessed by God," he said in in Facebook post on Tuesday (April 9).

Meanwhile, Datuk Seri Fadillah Yusof said he hoped Hari Raya Aidilfitri would be celebrated with gratitude as well help strengthen existing unity.

Fadillah, who is also Energy Transition and Water Transformation Minister, in a post on Facebook, said the arrival of Syawal is the biggest victory for every Muslim who fasts throughout Ramadan.

He said Ramadan teaches the meaning of gratitude, patience and sacrifice as well as being grateful for the blessings that have been given and adopting simplicity in all matters.

"Syawal also teaches us the meaning of sharing joy with our loved ones, strengthening existing relationships, and renewing our spirit of brotherhood.

"Selamat Hari Raya Aidilfitri to my family and friends. For those who are returning to their respective hometowns, may you always be careful during the journey to your hometown," said Fadillah who prayed that the brotherhood spirit among Malaysians will last. – Bernama
