house resolution no.80

Rep. Farhat offered the following resolution:

A resolution to declare April 21, 2023, as Eid al-Fitr Day in the state of Michigan.

Whereas, Eid al-Fitr, meaning “Festival of Breaking Fast” marks the end of Ramadan, the Muslim holy month of fasting; and  

Whereas, Eid al-Fitr is an occasion for special prayer, visiting with loved ones, and giving to charity; and

Whereas, The fasting during Ramadan allows individuals to engage in solemn contemplation, and these experiences help people be more aware of the sufferings of the poor; now, therefore, be it 

Resolved by the House of Representatives, That the members of this legislative body declare April 21, 2023, as Eid al-Fitr Day in the state of Michigan.
