Dili, 17 June 2024

Dear Muslim Brothers and Sisters in Timor-Leste.

On behalf of the people of Timor-Leste, I extend my warmest wishes to you all on this joyous occasion of Eid al-Adha 2024.

Eid al-Adha serves as a reminder of the profound lessons we can learn from the story of Prophet Ibrahim’s willingness to sacrifice his son in obedience to God’s command. It is a time to reflect on the values of selflessness, devotion, and the strength of our convictions.

On this auspicious day, I would like to acknowledge the invaluable contributions of our Muslim brothers and sisters to the rich tapestry of Timor-Leste’s society. Your commitment to faith, family, and community has played a vital role in shaping our nation’s identity and fostering a spirit of unity and understanding.

As we celebrate this joyous occasion, let us also reaffirm our commitment to religious harmony and mutual respect. In Timor-Leste, we take pride in our diversity and the peaceful coexistence of various faiths. May this Eid al-Adha further strengthen the bonds of brotherhood and sisterhood among all citizens, irrespective of their religious beliefs.

During this time of celebration, let us also remember those who are less fortunate and extend our support and compassion to them. The true essence of Eid al-Adha lies in sharing our blessings and bringing joy to the lives of others.

Once again, I convey my warmest wishes to all those celebrating Eid al-Adha with happiness, peace, and prosperity. May the spirit of Eid al-Adha bring joy, unit and spiritual fulfillment to Muslims across Timor-Leste and around the world.

Eid Mubarak!

Yours sincerely,


President of Timor-Leste and Nobel Peace Laureate
