 Hon. Shaoquett Moselmane's 151013 Eid Al-Adha Celebrations


Mr Moselmane saysó


 I give notice that on the next sitting day I will move:

 1.       That this House notes that:


(a)           Eid Al-Adha celebrations will commence on Tuesday 15 October 2013, marking a significant annual Islamic observance for Muslim communities across Australia,


(b)          Eid Al-Adha commemorates Ibrahimís, or Abrahamís, willingness to sacrifice his son to God,


(c)           the Eid Al-Adha festival is a time of peace and spirituality in which Muslims are united in prayer and in celebration,


(d)          Eid Al-Adha is also a time for Muslims to make donations to the poor and the needy, an act of thanksgiving for Godís mercy,


(e)           Eid Al-Adha marks a special occasion where millions of Muslims from around the world perform the annual Hajj pilgrimage to Mecca, marking the biggest annual congregation of Muslims around the world, and


(f)           Eid Al-Adha follows the annual pilgrimage to Mecca in Saudi Arabia, and Muslims worldwide are required to perform the Hajj once in their lives, with many Australian Muslims undertake this pilgrimage.


          2.   That this House notes the significance of this occasion to the Australian Muslim Communities and wishes all Australians Eid Al-Adha Mubarak.
