I send my best wishes to all Muslims in Crewe and Nantwich for the occasion of Eid ul Adha, which remembers the sacrifice of Abraham.
Marking the end of the Hajj, this most holy occasion commemorates our common humanity and reminds us of the importance of devotion, fairness and the equality of all human beings before God.
It allows those of us of other faiths, and none, to reflect on the unique Islamic contribution to Britain and to share with you in celebration of all that has been achieved by Muslims across so many walks of life.
Today Muslims around the UK and the world will be reflecting on many challenges that face us and the deep moral issues like conflict, poverty and climate change.
Together we can stand up to these challenges and move forward to a better world.
Eid Mubarak to you all.
