Beloved brethren, another opportunity has come in the glorious month of Ramadhan. The month of mercy, forgiveness and liberation from hellfire. A period of complete devotion to Allah when the Muslim world experiences perfect peace and brotherhood. It is a the month of the Qur'an, the month of blessings, the month of repentance and the month of profitable transaction with Allah (‘Azzawajalla).

Adopt the policy of mutual forgiveness, pardon and overlooking to preserve the bond of brotherhood. “The Believers are but a single brotherhood” 7. Constantly renew the intent and purpose of every action no matter how unimportant they may be “Actions are but with intentions” 8.
