By His Eminence Shaikh Ahmed al Khalili, Grand Mufti of the Sultanate — With the arrival of Ramadhan,
the month of all goodness and faith, I am honoured to greet all Muslims, and I would like to urge all of
them to take advantage of this holy month and to dedicate themselves for worship. Ramadhan is a
means of psychological education and a way of accustoming the self to good morals and leaving the ugly,
bad behaviour. All Muslims are required to educate themselves during this holy month and try to make
some amendments to their deeds and to try fixing the broken relations in their families. All people are
asked to support each other in their attempt to draw themselves towards goodness, integrity and dignity.
Every person needs to practise worship and tame the self to do good deeds to attain happiness in this
world and Hereafter. Keeping commitment on worship is a way to free the self from slavery and to attain
salvation from the Almighty Allah and a way to upgrade the self to the highest levels. Society should now
co-operate to form a good community that focuses on the worship of Allah and holds all the goodness.
Progress of nations is measured by their values and morals. Therefore, children should be raised on good
values since their childhood so that they could be good adults in future. New generations should inherit
values from ancestors and that is why people should enforce these values all the time
