Eid-ul Fitr Message from the Chairman of the Federation of Khoja Shia Ithna-Asheri Jamaats of Africa, Alhaj Shabir H. Najafi

O people! Verily this day of yours is the day when the righteous are awarded and the wretched are losers. It is a day which is similar to the one on which you shall be standing (before your Lord). Therefore, when you come out of your homes to go to places of your prayer, remind yourselves about the day when you (your souls) shall come out of your bodies to go to your Lord. When you stand on places of your prayer, remind yourselves of your standing in presence of your Lord (on the day of Judgment). And when you return to your homes (after prayer), remind yourselves about your returning to your homes in Paradise.
 

Extract from the Sermon of Imam Ali bin Abi Talib (as)
on the day of Eid ul-Fitr

By the Grace of Allah (SWT), the blessed month of Ramadhan is now upon us and brings with it bountiful opportunities to us all for spiritual growth, reflection and reformation of our inner selves towards enjoining what is good and forbidding what is evil, thus embracing and practicing God-consciousness to attain Allah's (SWT) Grace, Mercy and Blessings.  
 
Africa Federation has been in existence in Africa for almost 70 years, since its establishment in 1946. It is an institution which was established with compassion, determined efforts and sacrifices given by our elders and leaders of our community that brought about constructive and important transformation in religious, social, educational and economic developments. Together with being a faith based community organization, we respect all religions and beliefs; we respect human beings based on the Islamic principle that all human beings are equal irrespective of their cast, creed, color or religion. 
 
In today’s times I adore people especially the youth who use the technology and social media positively and effectively for their benefits and sharing the same vision with their fellows in areas such as educational development, exchange of information, news, photographs, videos, networking etc.
