Dear [Mr./Madam Minister (or other appropriate salutation)]:

Please accept my best wishes to Muslims around the world as they celebrate Eid al-Adha, and my congratulations to those returning home as they mark the end of the Hajj pilgrimage.

 It is momentous to see nearly three million Muslims – including thousands of Muslim Americans– gathered in Mecca to celebrate the fifth pillar of Islam.  The diversity of cultures and nations represented at the annual Hajj serves as a reminder of the vibrant civil societies that stand together in prayer, valuing spiritual reflection, service, helping those less fortunate, and building the foundations of mutual respect that transcends borders.

 On behalf of the Department of State, I send my warm greetings for a happy holiday. 

 Eid Mubarak and Hajj Mabrour.


 Rex W. Tillerson
