  1. Dear moslem colleagues

    I congratulate them upon the successful completion of the the holy month of Ramadan.

    For a Muslim, Ramadan is not a month of hardship. It is a blessed journey leading towards Jannah.

    May Allah always guide them with the noor of Imaan and your family all throughout your journey in life.

    May the crescent  moon brighten your path toward enlightenment and may Allah bless you with peace and grace!

    I wish this Ramadan they will all be rewarded with Allah’s blessings and forgiveness.

    May Allah accept their fasting🙏🙏
