Bismillah Rahmani Rahim
The Prime Minister of Somalia sends his salutations to the people of Somalia and to our brothers and sisters within the Muslim Ummah on the beginning of the blessed month of Ramadhan. H.E Abdiweli Sheikh Ahmed fervently hopes this Ramadhan brings happiness, success and peace to the Somali people and the entire Ummah.
A time for self-reflection and devotion through prayer and fasting, Ramadhan is also an occasion when Muslims around the world reaffirm their commitment to their families and communities. Furthermore, Ramadhan offers Muslims a chance to practice self-cleansing and increase their good deeds. Here in Somalia, we must remain united and build strong bonds during this blessed month and focus on the good we can create. The Prime Minister also extends his best wishes to the SNA and Police Force who have sacrificed their well-being in the face of senseless violence.
Muslims around the globe should hold tight to the rope of Allah, the rope of peace and the rope of mercy. H.E Abdiweli Sheikh Ahmed desires that all calamities and misfortunes cease during this blessed month and that it may be continuous. Peace, mercy and justice are necessary in Somalia when people across the globe continue to suffer from senseless conflict and violence. This sacred time reminds us of our universal obligation to pursue peace and to uphold the dignity of the Somali people and mankind.
