Let me extend my sincerest greetings of peace to all our Muslim brothers and sisters, as you observe As-Saum or Ramadan this year.
On this blessed month, as you go through your spiritual journey, keep in mind the teachings of Allah, such as humility and brotherhood. I hope that during this Ramadan, you will be strengthened in your faith, in your healthy relations with your family and friends, including other Filipinos of different faiths.
For truly, we live in the same land, share the same love for our country, and we are committed to the same pursuit for lasting peace, progress and unity in our beloved Philippines.
Ramadan Kareem to all Muslim Filipinos!
