The imam of the Grand Mosque in Makkah urged Muslims all over the world to be optimistic about their future, learning lessons from the past, when Muslims won several victories against enemies amid occasional failures and defeats.
…Saleh Bin-Humaid, chairman of the Shoura Council and imam of the Grand Mosque, led the prayers. In his Eid sermon, Bin-Humaid called upon Muslims to compete with one another in righteous and virtuous deeds. He said Islam has allowed Muslims to celebrate and enjoy Eid organizing various permissible activities. He criticized those who say that the Ummah cannot celebrate Eid when Muslims in various parts of the world, including in Palestine and Iraq, go through difficult times, and when Al-Aqsa Mosque remains under Israeli occupation. He said the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) and his companions had celebrated Eid while they were facing difficult situations….Bin-Humaid also called upon Muslims to be proactive, instead wailing their woes, in order to change their present predicament. “The celebration of Eid is not linked with finding solutions to crises as nations will continue to face crises and problems for years to come. … The ability to become happy is a sign of power and courage. … Eid is an occasion for creating hope among depressed minds … it is an occasion of tolerance and reconciliation,” Bin-Humaid said.
