Ramadan kareem to all who are observing the month of Ramadan.
If you'd like to know more about Ramadan, visit the FIANZ (The Federation of Islamic Associations of New Zealand) website. FIANZ says:
Ramadhan is the most blessed month of the Islamic calendar in which Allah S.W.T. guides us to good deeds. It is the month in which the Qur’an was revealed as clear guidance and judgment to all people. It is the month in which good deeds are multiplied and sins are forgiven.
