First Couple Wishes Muslims a Happy Ramadhan

His Excellency the President, Prof. Arthur Peter Mutharika and the First Lady, Madame Prof. Gertrude Mutharika have wished all Muslims in Malawi and the world at large peace, joy and blessings as they start to observe the Islamic holy month of Ramadhan tomorrow.

According to the statement released by the state house, “the first couple is calling upon Malawians to use the holy month of Ramadhan to pray for continued peace, love and unity among Malawians.”

Fasting in the month of Ramadhan is one of the pillars of Islam and according to the teachings of Islam, it has so many blessings as the doors of the hell fire are closed and the doors of the Paradise are opened.

Muslims are encouraged to pray  more, indulge into more charitable activities and abstain from anything that can affect their fasting in order maximize their rewards.
