Reflecting on Eid al-Fitr and Recent Events

As Eid al-Fitr has just concluded, marking the end of Ramadan, we at Faith2Share extend our thoughts to our Muslim neighbors and to our Christian members working in predominantly Muslim countries.

This year, the convergence of Ramadan with both Christian and Orthodox Lent created a unique period of spiritual significance for over half the world's population. In these challenging times of global unrest, economic uncertainty, and widespread suffering, this shared season of prayer and reflection took on added importance.

We are deeply saddened by the news of the tragic loss of life during this year's Hajj pilgrimage, which took place from June 14th to June 19th, 2024. The extreme heat conditions in Saudi Arabia led to the deaths of over 1,300 pilgrims from various countries. Our hearts go out to the families affected by this tragedy.

As a Christian membership organisation, we recognise the importance of Eid al-Fitr and Hajj in the Islamic faith. We stand in solidarity with our Christian brothers and sisters working in Muslim-majority nations, acknowledging the challenges and opportunities they face in fostering interfaith understanding.
