On behalf of the Federal Labor Party it gives us great pleasure to send our best wishes to all those celebrating Eid al-Adha.

Eid al-Adha is a time to come together and acknowledge the discipline and integrity that faith can instil in us.

Throughout Australia the Muslim community will recognise the discipline and sacrifice of Ibraham and reflect on their own self-control and commitment to the values they hold dear.

Importantly, this is also a time to give generously to those in our community who need a helping hand.

In the spirit of egalitarianism, let us use this time to consider what we can do to assist our fellow Australians who are in need and recommit to a more equal and prosperous society.

On behalf of the Federal Parliamentary Labor Party we wish you a joyous and memorable celebration.

Eid Mubarak!
