As the Holy Month of Ramadhan for Hijrah 1439 is about to start, I take this opportunity to greet the Muslims around the world Ya Sahro Ramadhan Al Mubarak.

The teachings of Ramadhan is not only about abstaining from eating food or drinking water or praying but rather it is also abstaining from doing sinful things, lending a hand to those who are in need or giving charity and the promotion of peace in the community.

May this Holy Month of Ramadhan enlighten the heart and soul of everybody and give utmost importance to the promotion of peace, joy and harmony in the universe.

In this regard, I join our Muslim brothers and sisters in welcoming the Holy Month of Ramadhan as a gesture of understanding the beliefs of other faithfuls.
