Announcing Ramadan (1439H-2018)
On behalf of Muslims Australia - AFIC, I am pleased to report that the Australian National Imams Council has announced the beginning of the Holy month of Ramadan for this year, Insha’Allah, to be Thursday 17 May 2018.
I am honoured and privileged to send you this message of Ramadan, the most important and
auspicious month of the Islamic calendar. Ramadan is an incomparable blessing from Allah in so
many ways. During this holy month, fasting, prayer, charity, and in fact all good deeds ordered by our Creator are rewarded manyfold when compared to other days and months of the year.
Ramadan is a time of assessment of our spiritual health and is like spring when everything comes
to life, dry grass and trees start to thrive and flowers bloom after a cold winter.
So, my sisters, brothers, and friends, let us take this golden opportunity to reap the rewards that
Allah swt has promised for those who patiently persevere in His Obedience.
On behalf of Muslims Australia - AFIC, I wish you a blessed, joyous and inspirational Ramadan.
May Allah swt accept our fasting, prayer and good deeds and actions during this holy month!
