Ahmed wished a peaceful, blessed and fruitful day for all followers of Islam and urged to celebrate it with joy and charitable actions involving every member of society, especially those facing difficulties.
All Muslims around the world are celebrating with joy the God-given festival of Eid al-Fitr for the happiness of mankind, but the satisfaction does not come from food and drink, but from acts of compassion, the prime minister said.
The best way to celebrate, he commented, is by supporting each other, helping those in need, sharing food, facilitating donations for low-income people.
This year, he added, the Great Ramadan showed a strong national unity, Iftar events held in several cities and towns across the country helped the Muslims strengthen mutual support and harmony.
Eid al-Fitr, or Festival of Breaking Fast, is an Islamic holiday that marks the end of the holy month of Ramadan, in which Muslims must fast from dawn to dusk every day.
