Head FIDE greets Muslims on Uraza Bayram

I wholeheartedly greet all the faithful Believers with the holy month of Ramadan and the festival of Uraza Bayram!

Uraza Bayram symbolizes the renewal of spiritual forces, the assertion of moral purity, compassion and mercy and recalls the eternal values. From time immemorial, it is celebrated by good deeds, care for the needy and personifies people's desire for self-improvement.

I sincerely hope that the good and mercy of the holy month will always be with you.

Let Uraza Bayram bring you warmth and joy, peace and prosperity. With all my heart I wish you good health, happiness and success!

President International chess federations (FIDE)
