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 Idul Fitri, marking the end of the holy month of Ramadan.

Idul Fitri is a celebration of that spiritual Journey, It is a time to rejoice with family and friends, to forgive past grievances, and to renew the bonds of unity, peace, and compassion that lie at the heart of Islam.

In Timor-Leste, we take pride in our religious diversity and harmony. The Muslim community is an integral part of the tapestry of cultures that makes our nation so deeply with the ideals we cherish as nation.

As you mark this blessed occasion with special prayers, gatherings, and festivities, I hope it brings joy, peace and blessings to you and your loved ones.

Eid Mubarak!

President of Timor-Leste and Nobel Peace Laureate
