President Abdulla Yameen Abdul Gayoom has appealed to everyone to put in extra effort to revive religious spirit in the hearts of all Maldivians. The President made this appeal in his message on the auspicious occasion of the Islamic New Year 1439.
In his message, the President noted that all Muslims must acquire lessons from the Hijrah (migration from Mecca to Medina) of the Prophet Mohamed (pbuh), the importance given by the Prophet (pbuh) for the duties bestowed upon him by the Almighty Allah, and the sacrifices of the Prophet (pbuh) in promoting Islam.
President Yameen pointed out that as we welcome a new Islamic year, we must be cautious of the hate crimes and violence against Muslims today, by anti-Islamic individuals and groups. The President highlighted the anti-humane actions that are being carried out against Rohingya Muslims in Myanmar, and stated that it was the international community’s responsibility to help them and resolve the pressing issue.
