An Eid message from the Mayor of Brent
22 May 2020
My very best wishes to everyone celebrating Eid al-Fitr in Brent and beyond.
The traditional Muslim festival marks the end of Ramadan - a month of fasting. 'Eid', an Arabic word meaning 'festivity,' is a happy event that embraces family, thanksgiving, remembrance and peace.
Lockdown restrictions remain in place despite the usual tradition for family gatherings and prayers during this occasion. Observing a socially distanced Eid will not be easy, but as long as we continue to follow the guidance we can get through these uncertain times.
I wish you all a happy and safe Eid. Eid Mubarak.
Councillor Ernest Ezeajughi, Mayor of Brent
