Ilyumzhinov congratulates Muslims on the occasion of Eid al-Fitr

I congratulate all Muslims with one of the most revered festivals of Islam - Eid al-Adha!

This bright holiday is the true symbol of spiritual cleansing and justice, the desire to follow the path of moral perfection. Eid al-Adha marks the end of Hajj, the pilgrimage to Mecca, awakens the best aspirations of sympathy, selflessness and compassion for others in the hearts of believers.
I sincerely wish that this great holiday fills your homes with good and happiness. Let it always serve the harmony and unity of all people and give access to the centuries-old religious and historical traditions. Let faith be strong and hearts filled with love.

I wish wisdom, peace, health and long life to you and your loved ones!

Kirsan Ilyumzhinov,
The President of the International Chess Federation (FIDE)
