KUALA LUMPUR, Jun 24 – Datuk Seri Najib Abdul Razak urged Muslims to take advantage of the fasting month of Ramadan by engaging in good practices and ending disputes among themselves. The Prime Minister said Ramadan was a blessed month and Muslims should strive to improve themselves and stop quarrelling among themselves.
“Cut down on work that does not yield benefits and stop vilifying others. So, if we can all make use of Ramadan to increase worship without evoking things that invite dispute, surely we will be able to enjoy the beauty of Ramadan fully,” he said in an audio clip uploaded onto his Twitter account.
Referring to the by-elections in Kuala Kangsar and Sungai Besar last week, Najib said that despite the intense competition among the contesting political parties, the by-elections were over and done with. As such, he said, all quarters should seek forgiveness, set aside differences and step up good practices during Ramadan.
The Prime Minister also invited Muslims to engage in the ‘tarawih’ prayers with family and friends. He expressed gratitude for having been able to spend time with his mother, wife, children and relatives after the prayers. He said that it was really calming. — Bernama
