Assalamualaikum w.b.t. / السَّلاَمُ عَلَيْكُمْ وَرَحْمَةُ اللهِ وَبَرَكَاتُهُ 

The committee members of PSGFM would like to wish to all Muslim members around the world of happy Eid ul-Fitr.

As Muslims all around the world celebrate Eid-al-Fitr, the committee members of Pertubuhan Seni Gayung Fatani Malaysia (PSGFM) extend our warmest wishes to all members, coaches and families. 

Eid reminds us of the many achievements and contributions of our gurus and members to building the very fabric of our association and strengthening the core of our principles of silat values in our life.  

That is why we stand together under the patronage of Grandmaster, Tuan Guru Aminuddin bin Haji Anuar  here in Malaysia and around the world, to promote the positive values of Silat (Sikap Pendekar) and advance the principles to giving back to the communities.

On behalf of the Administration, we wish our Muslims members in Malaysia and around the world a blessed and joyous celebration. Eid Mubarak.

May Allah's Blessings of Joy, Peace and Good Health Be Showered on You on This Auspicious Occasion of Eid!

Tuan Guru Mohd Shahiid Elias,
