President Message Commencement of Ramazan 2004

Message from the President of Pakistan to the Nation at the Commencement of Ramzan-Ul-Mubarak 1425 A.H./2004

October 15, 2004

It is a blessing of the God Almighty that He has once again bestowed upon us the opportunity to benefit from the blessings of the Holy month of Ramzan-ul-Mubarak. I heartily congratulate all Pakistani Muslims and the Muslim Ummah on the commencement of Ramzan-ul-Mubarak, (Ramzan-ul-Mubarak is a month of fasting).

In this context, it is the Holy Month, which provides us the opportunities for spiritual fulfillment, self-purification and character building. The blessings of this month are showered not only upon single individual, but on the whole society for spiritual transformation to give it a healthy new shape.

During this blessed month, the Muslims remain away from all those forbidden activities, which offend Allah Almighty and struggle to do all those good deeds that are liked by Him. This character building is the basic objective of fasting in this holy month. The fasting teaches us self-control because of which one gets rid of spiritual diseases like excessive materialistic desires, greed and lust, to fully realize the spirit of patience and contentment. Dear brethren! Islam in fact, is the religion of peace and mutual co-existence.

The real aim of Islamic teachings is to open the avenues of peace and justice for all human beings, to eliminate the darkness of oppression, which surely are not liked by Allah Almighty. Islam ensures the continuation of struggle for peace and tranquility, welfare of humanity and mutual tolerance and brotherhood.

Terrorism, oppression, violence and sectarianism are regarded as abominable and heinous crimes in Islam. Every Muslim should avoid these acts as the Holy Prophet (Peace Be Upon Him) says “Facilitate people and don’t create difficulties for them. Tell them good news and save them from hatred and narrow-mindedness”.

 I pray that May Allah Almighty enable us, in the light of real and lofty teachings of Islam, to observe fast, recite Holy Quran and transform our hearts and minds towards the objectives which are taught by Islam and ought to be practiced in its true letter and spirit in the Holy Month of Ramzan and May Allah bestow upon Pakistan and the whole Muslim Ummah, his blessings and bounties.
