Message from The Mayor
I would like to extend my best wishes to all those performing Hajj this year and to Muslims in Tower Hamlets and around the country who are celebrating Eid-ul-Adha.
On Eid-ul-Adha we reflect on the values of sacrifice, trust and forgiveness.
On this day Muslims from all over the world join their neighbours and friends at mosques, community centres, parks and homes to pray and recommit to helping each other. Many will also distribute food and money to those in need.
We think about these common values of peace and harmony in our community.
On this very important day of celebration, I wish you all a very happy and peaceful Eid.
Mayor of Tower Hamlets
Message from the Chief Executive
I would like to send my warmest wishes to those celebrating Eid al-Adha, which marks the start of a very special week for millions of Muslims around the world, following the end of Hajj; the annual Islamic pilgrimage to Mecca.
The values of compassion and togetherness embodied by this holy festival are ones we can all learn from. They strengthen and capture the spirit of community that unites us all.
I extend our best wishes to all those celebrating and wish you all a happy Eid Mubarak, as you reflect, celebrate and spend time with your family and friends.
