Uttley, Mike More the Chief Executive of Suffolk
County Council and Revd. Peter Mortimer on the far
`Eid is a thanksgiving day on which Muslims assemble
in a brotherly and joyful atmosphere to offer
their gratitude to Allah for helping them to fulfill
their spiritual obligations prior to the `Eid.
This form of thanksgiving is not confined to spiritual
devotion and verbal expressions. It goes far beyond
that to manifest itself in a handsome shape of
social and humanitarian spirit. The Muslims who
have completed the fasting of Ramadan express
their thanks to Allah by means of distributing
alms among the poor and needy on the first `Eid
before the Prayer.
Jeremy Clover, the Chairman of the
Suffolk County Council
