Bismillahi Rahmani Raheem.
The Messenger of Allah (SWT) said,
"When Ramadan begins, the gates of Paradise are opened, the gates of hell are closed, and the devils are chained up." (Bukhari and Muslim)
As we observe the Holy Month of Ramadan, may every Muslim Cotabateño in the country and across the globe be blessed with good health, happiness and prosperity.
During this Sacred Month, let us reflect on all the mistakes and bad habits that we have made and pray that forgiveness may be bestowed upon us. Let us include in our prayers our loved ones, our friends, and even those who have wronged us that the spirit of Ramadan may shine upon them and illuminate their souls.
In this season when the Holy Angels go down to the Earth and listen to every heartfelt prayer, may we always pray for our beloved Cotabato City—that it may always be blessed with peace and harmony and may we be protected from those with bad intentions to disrupt all the progress that we are enjoying.
Wishing our fellow Muslims a happy and blessed Ramadan!
