Assalamualaikum. Ramadhān Mubarak!

I am one with our Muslim Filipino brothers and sisters in the observance of Ramadhan across the world.

In this time of solemn prayer, fasting, and reflection, let us be grateful for the blessings we have received and pray for the plight of others who need our help, support, and intercession.

May this Ramadhan allow us to cleanse our thoughts, purify our hearts, and grow deeper in our faith with Allah as we take heed and strive to manifest the teachings of the Qur’an in our daily lives.

With all humility and trust, let us lay down in our prayers our deepest hopes of lasting peace in Mindanao, the Philippines, and the world even as we pray for our good intentions, our life plans, and our dreams of prosperity and unity in our family, community, and our country.

May we learn to master ourselves and demonstrate compassion, kindness, forgiveness, acceptance, and respect.

Sa pagninilay-nilay natin sa ating mas malalim na layunin sa buhay, nawa'y lagi tayong mamuhay na sumusunod sa mga salita ni Allah sa pakikitungo natin sa ating mga kaibigan, pamilya, at lahat ng ating nakakasalamuha.

Hangad ko ang kapayapaan, kagalakan, at kasaganahan para sa lahat. In sha’Allah!

Lahat – para sa Diyos, sa bayan, at sa bawat pamilyang Pilipino.
