Ramadan is a sacred month of fasting from dawn to dusk and is observed by adult and sane Muslims all over the world as a fourth of the five pillars of Islam.

Muluzi, a practising Moslem, said the special month of Ramadan provides spiritual nourishment  andcalled on Malawians to embrace a spirit of love unity and forgiveness as.

He was speaking Friday evening at the official residence of the Egyptian Ambassador to Malawi, Maher El-Adawy during a fast-breaking service of the second day of Ramadhan.

“Ramadhan is a month of extreme importance by its very virtue of being one of the most important five pillars of Islam. This is a month of fasting and reflection; thanking Allah for his blessings on us but most importantly a month of repentance because God’s door of forgiveness is always open,” said Muluzi.

The Minister also noted that Ramadan is a time when Muslims reflect upon the wisdom and guidance that comes with faith.

He thus urged that Malawians should exercise forgiveness for one another in the same way they ask for Allah’s forgiveness.

The Egyptian ambassador El-Adawy said he organised the event because the Ramadhan is an apt month to spread the message of love, peace forgiveness and unity; and “Malawi needs everyone’s efforts to develop and move forward.”

“This is a month when the rich give to the poor, the able help the unable and the privileged help the underprivileged,” said the ambassador appreciating the large turnout of people; both Muslims and non-Muslims.

The event was climaxed by a banquet which was preceded by a prayer service.

Sending his wishes, Muluzi said, “As the holy month of Ramadan begins, I wish all Muslims a joyful Ramadan Kareem”.

Fasting,  is the fourth of the five pillars of Islam and is intended to help teach Muslims self-discipline, self-restraint and generosity.

Forgiveness !!!!!!!!!! There is no such thing in Muslim world as forgiveness. I wonder which God to you Muslims play to. All you think is killing as you already said ” We love our death as your life. What kind of people are you. God said He will protect us but you muslim seems as you are protecting God. A Atupele, tamagodyani ndalama zabomazzoooo.

Why are they failing to forgive Morsi in Egypt instead they are baying for his blood.Alshabab and Boko Haram are killing people on daily basis.All the ISIS of Syria and Irag are forgiving moslems.What they think is about War only.
