According to the president, the fasting period offers a unique opportunity to “feel the hunger that is lived to feel what it is to be dispossessed and marginalized.

“Muslims should seek greater personal discipline, which is necessary for the realization of a great nation.”

He counseled the Muslim elite against food waste and extravagant spending while others face hunger and destitution, urging them to care for their neighbors, the poor and the marginalized.

He also asked for prayers for peace in the country and beyond, and for healing and harmony throughout the world.

He wished all Muslims a successful completion of the 30-day fasting period.
