Australia’s political, business and religious leaders came together in celebration & support of our Australia’s Muslim community
More than 35 political, business, community and religious leaders came together with messages of support for our Australia’s Muslim community for Eid-al-Fitr.
Ramadan is the holiest month in the Islamic calendar and is a time when we focus on our spiritual growth and build stronger relationships with Allah swt.
The joyous festival of Eid ul- Fitr or “Festival of Breaking the Fast” marks the end of Ramadan and is a time of celebration by all Muslims across the world.
For us at Crescent Wealth, this year certainly felt very different to last year. In 2019, we celebrated Eid at Luna Park in a special event for our Islamic Super members and their friends with unlimited rides, amusements, special Eid treats and cultural entertainments. It was an incredible event, everyone in very close proximity to one another which will look forward to experiencing again in the future when it is safe to do so.
Instead this year we bought together our leaders and community across many sectors and walks of life in our #WeAreOne video, showcasing a wonderful display of solidarity, unity and celebration with and for our Australia’s Muslim community marking this beautiful and joyous occasion.
The #EidMubarak #WeAreOne campaign featured current and former political leaders including NSW Premier, Gladys Berejiklian, and WA Premier, Mark McGowan, Federal Leader of The Opposition Anthony Albanese, former PM Kevin Rudd AC, former Opposition Leader, Dr John Hewson AM as well as the Chair of ANZ David Gonksi, Musician, Jimmy Barnes AO, Airtasker CEO Tim Fung, AMP Capital Chair Ming Long, Sheik Alaa El Zokm all sending messages of celebration & support.
