attended by the staff and students of the boarding department. also
attending was a big number of jlss teachers and members of staff. he
delivered a most wonderful address about tolerance, cooperation, and
love between muslims and christians as the core value and intention of
both religions. he quoted both the holy quran and the holy bible to
indicate that we are all called to live together in harmony and love. he
also explained the meaning of eed al-adha al-moubarak reminding everyone
that it is the time to rejoice, praise god, enjoy his great blessings,
and do good to the less fortunate in our societies.
