A Scottish Eid Tribute to the NHS and all frontline workers

24th May 2020

The Scottish Ahlul Bayt Society joins with 100 partners and associates across Scotland, on the blessed occasion of Eid Al Fitr, to pay tribute and extend our gratitude to the NHS and all frontline workers. 

Eid Al Fitr marks the end of the holy month of fasting; the Month of Ramadan — a time for charity, kindness and reflection.

On the occasion this year, we pause to remember all those souls who have departed during the ongoing COVID-19 crisis. Our heartfelt condolences are paid to their families, friends and colleagues.

This Eid, a heartfelt note of appreciation from every organisation and body listed here goes to all NHS staff, emergency services, civil society organisations, faith community operations, support teams, carers, supermarket chains and independent grocers, and to all other frontline workers who have absolutely surpassed their duties to our country as a whole, and to its communities, over the course of this pandemic.

Let this be our collective stand in solidarity, thanksgiving and humanity.

Shabir Beg OBE, Chairman of the Scottish Ahlul Bayt Society: “With humility, I thank each and everyone of you who have, on the auspicious occasion of Eid, paid tribute to all NHS and frontline workers during the COVID-19 Pandemic.”
