In the name of God the Merciful,
Praise be to God, Lord of the Worlds, and peace and blessings be upon His Messenger, the faithful and the righteous, and his family and gracious companions, and those who followed them until the Day of Judgment.
Honorable brothers,
Glory be to the One who made the fortitude of hearts in the home of truth a way to the vastness of reason and the grace of satisfaction. And perseverance is a jewel in the soul, the light of which increases as the worldly life is intensified with frequent crises and difficulties.
The faithful Druze monotheist is stable with his inner resilience, with his goodwill in his religion and in the mirror of order and prohibition and good manners in facing the difficulties of time. It goes without saying that the present times impose a deep sense of the conditions of society. Congratulations to those who are altruistic, courageous, and proactive to every good in assistance according to their ability.
My brothers:
I command you and myself not to underestimate the contamination to which the world is exposed, including Lebanon, which the health authorities assert that it is transmitted from hand to hand and from person to another and to consider the Majlis keepers, each in their Majlis, as the first role models in promoting prevention, know-how, good management and taking appropriate action for the safety of their brothers and their community in the light of health guidelines in this regard, as well as practicing truncation during religious and public events and funerals and weddings.
We stress on briefing the duration of the shrine visits and having only the blessed recitations and prayers. Avoid gatherings or staying in the sanctuary of the Maqam or request overstaying or otherwise, as well as dressing modestly.
I also command you to increase solidarity and support in the time of hardship, in addition to moderation and humility to acquaint yourself to the little without delinquency to what is not necessary. It goes without saying that it is not appropriate in our present times to rush to excess matters in luxury food and drinks, but rather to seek to secure the basics of life, resilience, and stockpiling of essentials, and those who are well off should avoid excessive eagerness for the sake of offering help and giving away, to do good to all who are in patience.
It is important to guide and educate young people on the importance of recognition of narrow, ignored social situations and also to guide young people to avoid Eid celebrations using fireworks, which would be praised.
We extend our best wishes to all our siblings and children on the occasion of the blessed Eid Al-Adha, we ask God Almighty to turn the Eid in our hearts into love of good, virtue, and benign deeds, and to inspire us to become supportive and cooperative on good deeds. May God return Eid on our homeland and nation at best circumstances. We ask God Almighty to bless us with mercy, kindness and help, and He is the Most Merciful and Kind, the Most Helpful and the Greatest Supporter.
