Ramadan is the ideal time to advance peace, says the DND chief
Carlito Galvez Jr., the director of the Department of National Defense (DND), expressed the hope that the holy month of Ramadan would provide a chance to advance peace in the nation.
We should unite in our efforts to restore peace and prosperity to our nation, and this festival is the ideal occasion to do so. As the Muslim holy fasting month gets underway, may introspection, prayer, self-denial, and generosity inspire us to uphold our religion and well-being, Galvez wrote in a message on Wednesday.
The DND chairman also hopes that everyone will be reminded to be instruments of peace by the celebration.
In addition, he urged Muslim Filipinos to “carry out our responsibilities to our people and communities” with optimism and commitment.
“May we be motivated to live and meet the difficulties ahead by the spirit of peace and understanding according to the teachings of the Islamic faith? The DND chief emphasized, “Ramadan Mubarak from your One Defense Team.
As Ramadan approaches on Thursday, the Muslim community in Cebu announced that it would make special prayers and sacrifices in support of world peace and an end to the conflict in Ukraine.
Muslims in Cebu were instructed to commemorate Ramadan with the suffering of those in nations facing armed conflict in mind as they recite their prayers and carry out an act of kindness during the holiday by Ustadz Najeeb Razul, an Imam and expert in Islamic law in Central Visayas.
Usually, a call for world peace would be included in our congregational prayers. Everyone would pray for peace and simultaneously contribute in their own unique way to a special effort in the global viewpoint to resolve problems between countries, Razul said in an interview with the Philippine News Agency (PNA).
In order to prevent conflict, he vowed to pray for “sober minds to be considerate, to play cool, and talk among themselves.”
The ninth month of the Islamic calendar is Ramadan, one of the five pillars of Islam. It is a time for devotion, fasting, prayer, almsgiving, and spiritual growth.
The Muslim community celebrates Eid’l Fitr, one of the two most significant Islamic holidays, three days following the conclusion of the month-long Ramadan fast.
