“I hope this month enshrines us with the need to always do good to others and ourselves, he said..

Ambassador Akram’s message said, “Ramadan is a month of exchanging gestures of compassion and empathy. It is a time for reflection self-purification and learning. It is also a time to look after those in need and to uplift one another.

“During this month, we thank Allah for his countless blessings and help those around us through charitable acts. Ramadan teaches us that our salvation lies in following His teachings and doing good deeds.

“During this time, I would like to express my condolences to my Muslim brothers and sisters who lost their loved ones, and their homes in climate calamities, in particular during the devastating floods that affected Pakistan, Türkiye, and other parts of the world. The earthquake which affected southern Türkiye and northern Syria also incurred extensive loss of life and damage to properties.
