Ilyumzhinov’s greetings to Muslims on the onset of the Holy month of Ramadan

On April 12, while in Beirut, Ilyumzhinov warmly congratulated all believers professing Islam on the onset of the blessed month of Ramadan:

“From the bottom of my heart I congratulate all believers professing Islam on the coming of the blessed month of Ramadan! As it is written in the Qur'an, strict observance of the fast and refusal of all sinful thoughts and desires will allow a person to be cleansed of vices. This is the only way to earn the forgiveness of Allah and eternal happiness in Paradise.
Ramadan is a sacred time for fasting, spiritual purification and abstinence from earthly passions in the name of Allah. Believers at this time turn to the main foundations of Islam - justice, love for one's neighbour, doing good deeds and helping those in need.


May the days of Lent strengthen your faith; fill your hearts with goodness, love and creative energy! I wish you good health, happiness, prosperity, peace and harmony in families! May the Almighty protect you and your children in the name of goodness and peace on our planet!"
