All praises are due to Allah ﷻ alone.

As we welcome the holy month of Ramadan, a time of blessings and spiritual growth, let us take the opportunity to improve our relationship with Allah and the Quran. During this time, we should also remember our brothers and sisters around the world who are facing hardships. Whether in China, among Uyghur Muslims, or in Palestine, India, or Kashmir, they all need our prayers and support.

This Ramadan brings a new challenge as we witness an increase in immorality, indecency, and vulgarity around us. Let us use this month to improve ourselves and prepare to fight against this onslaught of negative influences in our communities, preparing ourselves and our families to face this challenge.

We must also remember that our relationship with the Quran and charitable actions will help us achieve this goal. Inshallah, we will be able to achieve our target of praising our Lord.

Your Brother in Islam,
