Rouhani CongratulatesEid al-Fitr to World Muslims.

TEHRAN (FNA)- Iranian President Hassan Rouhani in a message to the world Muslims congratulated them on the occasion of the arrival of Muslims' feast of fasting, Eid al-Fitr.

"The virtuous month of Ramadan has always been an opportunity to cultivate as well as to purify the body and soul from all sorts of false deeds; pioneers of this luminous path, with deliberate neglect of food and avoidance of sin, find merit in attending the divine feast," President Rouhani said in his message on Sunday evening.

In his message, in addition to hailing arrival of Eid al-Fitr which is celebrated at the end of fasting month of Ramadan, President Rouhani appreciated Islamic community's attendance in Quds Day rallies which honored legitimacy of the oppressed nations of the region, liberation of the Holy Quds and condemned Takfiri terrorism.

"Enlightening the foundations of justice, reason, and peace in Islamic thought is the responsibility of Muslim intellectuals," he added.

Eid al-Fitr marks a glorious crystallization of the excellent month of Ramadan which gives hope to human beings who have breezed past the dark night of selfishness and reached the morning moderation and rationally by overcoming sensual tendencies.

"I feel obliged to appreciate the Islamic community's massive, integrated turnout in the International Quds Day march, sending their message of supporting the legitimacy of the oppressed peoples of the region, the freedom of Quds and condemnation of Takfiri terrorism clearly," the Iranian president said.

In relevant remarks earlier in June, President Rouhani called on the regional states to help eradicate terrorism and extremism.

"It is important to foster unity among Muslim countries and uproot terrorism and extremism in the Muslim countries," President Rouhani said.
