The Muslim world is approaching the end of the Holy Month of Ramadan. Muslims have observed this fasting month as not only a period of abstinence from food and drinks, but also a period of spiritual reflection and purification with the aim of developing Taqwa (Allah consciousness).

Eid-ul-Fitr should mark not only a day of festivity among families and friends, but also a day of solidarity with the oppressed and support for all who are suffering under the yoke of oppression the world over.

This year’s (2019/1440), Eid-ul-Fitr, should be remembered by focusing on the sufferings of  our brothers and sisters in the world who live under oppressive and unjust rulers. This is especially so in Arab regions of the Middle East. In the forefront must be the Saudi regime followed by Abdel Fatah Ai Sisi’s Egypt. All these  illegal  family fiefdoms are propped up by the United States and her military camp known as Israel.

In Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Algeria, Yemen, Sudan, Libya, Qatar, United Arab Emirate (UAE), and Bahrain, people live under various forms of autocratic domination and tyranny. Much of the persecution is inflicted or imposed on one Muslim country by another. Some of the most unjust rulers in the world originate from this part of the world planted by the Zionists to perpetuate its hegemony. Any opposition or dissention to these tyrants is not tolerated and all dissenters are thrown into prisons with no legal representations or fair trial. 

In Yemen, wanton destruction of the country continues unabated and has created one of the worst humanitarian crisis the world has ever seen. The same can be said of Libya, Sudan and Algeria.

As we celebrate Eid-ul-Fitr, let us remember our brothers and sisters who are languishing in jails across the Arab world, especially in the Khariji Arabi (Arabian Gulf) and across North Africa.

The Media Review Network wishes Muslims throughout the world, a Happy Eid-ul-Fitr and we pray that the Most Merciful Creator, Allah (SWT) pour out the blessing of this day upon all Muslims, especially on those suffering injustice and oppression throughout the world.
