Ilyumzhinov congratulates Muslims on the advent of the holy month of Ramadan

I sincerely congratulate all Islam believers with the advent of the blessed month of Ramadan!

In Islam, this is the sacred time of fasting, spiritual purification and abstinence from earthly passions in the name of Allah. This holy month draws believers to the moral foundations of Islam – fairness, love of neighbour, doing good deeds and helping those in need.

I know that the month of Ramadan occupies a special place in the life of every Muslim. As the Qur'an says, strict observance of fasting and rejection of all sinful thoughts and desires will allow a person to be cleansed from vices, only thus can one receive the forgiveness of Allah and eternal happiness in Paradise. No wonder they say that Ramadan is a month of mercy.
This is the time of spiritual purification, comprehension of life priorities and inner self improvement. The traditions of Ramadan, which go back to the depths of the centuries, remind us of the need to be merciful, to do good deeds, to show compassion and concern for others.
May the days of the Great Fast strengthen your faith; fill the hearts with kindness, love and creative energy! I wish you good health, happiness, prosperity, peace and family harmony! May the Almighty bless you and your children in the name of good and peace on our planet!
