The Muslim world is approaching the end of the Holy Month of Ramadaan. Muslims have observed this month as not only a period of abstinence from food and drinks, but also a period of spiritual purification in an effort to develop Allah-consciousness or Taqwa. The body and mind have been disciplined so as to establish a sense of compassion for our fellow human beings.
With this strength and energy and sense of brotherhood, Eid-ul-Fitr will mark not only a day of festivity among families and friends, but also a day of solidarity and support for all who are suffering under the yoke of oppression the world over.
The Media Review Network wishes Muslims throughout the world, a spiritually fulfilling Eid-ul-Fitr and we pray that the Exalted Creator, Allah (SWA) cascades the blessings of this day upon all of us, most especially on those suffering injustice and oppression throughout the world.
As we engrave this message, we reflect on our brothers and sisters in areas like Palestine, Kashmir, Rohingya, Chechnya, Yemen, Syria and Afghanistan, where life is constantly about survival, and a hungry stomach is not exclusive to the fast of Ramadaan
We pray that the atmosphere of Ramadaan prevails in our hearts and homes throughout the year. In Shaa Allah.
