Ramadan messages from political leaders

Ramadan messages from Leader of Labour Party, Leader of the Liberal Democrats, Leader of the Scottish National Party, the First Minister of Wales and the Mayor of London, exclusively to The Muslim News

 

Rt Hon Sir Keir Starmer MP, Leader of the Labour Party

I would like to send my warmest wishes to all those observing the holy month of Ramadan here in the United Kingdom and around the world.

Ramadan is a time of sacrifice, devotion, and renewed strength. It is a time to celebrate the strong sense of community as people gather together in mosques and community spaces to share iftar meals with their neighbours and the wider community.

I want to take this opportunity to thank all the Muslim community volunteers, organisations and charities that have stepped up in these challenging times. Your efforts truly embody not only the essence of Ramadan, but also the values of Islam.

I recently set out my contract with the British people, to work with all our communities to create a new Britain, founded on the values of security, prosperity, and respect. Under my leadership, a future Labour government will robustly stand up for the rights of Muslims everywhere, and work to ensure Muslim communities feel safe, secure, and respected.

On behalf of the Labour Party, I want to take this opportunity to wish you all a Ramadan Kareem.

 

Rt Hon Sir Ed Davey, Leader of the Liberal Democrat

I want to send my best wishes to Muslims in the UK and around the world as we welcome the Holy Month of Ramadan.
Ramadan is a time for reflection, devotion, and generosity. Remarkably, families and friends will be able to celebrate together again after two difficult years with restrictions on gatherings. The joys of meeting face-to-face after so long apart will be immeasurable.
I wish all those observing this holy month a blessed and peaceful Ramadan.
Ramadan Kareem.

 

Rt Hon Nicola Sturgeon, First Minister of Scotland

As the month of Ramadan begins during what is a time of unrest across the world, we can all especially appreciate the importance of this sacred time of devotion and reflection. Ramadan is a period when Muslims go out of their way to perform acts of kindness, offer prayers, and donate their time to those in need.

I know that those seeking safety and refuge from war will be at the forefront of the minds of Muslims across the world, not just here in Scotland, and for this I sincerely thank you.

 

Rt Hon Mark Drakeford, First Minister of Wales

Muslim communities are an essential and valued part of Wales. We are once again approaching the start of the holy month of Ramadan under the shadow of the pandemic – but this year with more hope in our hearts that we can see a future beyond the emergency measures which have dominated the past two years.

I want to thank the Muslim Council for Wales and other Muslim faith organisations in Wales, for representing their faith communities throughout this most difficult time in our history. Your support has been invaluable to us.

You have opened your arms to welcome people seeking safety and sanctuary in Wales – a true embodiment of our Nation of Sanctuary.

We have been grateful to receive your guidance in ensuring the needs of Muslim faith communities can always be taken into account when we are making decisions.

And I want to thank faith leaders for opening up mosques to become vaccination centres – this has helped to save many people’s lives and has helped us to turn the corner in this pandemic. This positive action has helped to support and protect some of the most vulnerable people against this most cruel virus.

As chair of the Faith Communities Forum in Wales, I have the honour of meeting representatives from the Muslim Council and faith communities. Their wise counsel and contributions are important as we recover and learn to live with coronavirus safely.

As we approach the most holy month of Ramadan, it provides us all with the opportunity to pause and to be reminded of our most precious and shared values of compassion, sacrifice and empathy for others.

Ramadan Mubarak to you all.

 

Rt Hon Sadiq Khan, Mayor of London

As-salaam alaykum. I would like to wish Londoners, and all those observing Ramadan around the world, a very happy and blessed month.

For the last two years, the holy month has looked very different, with coronavirus restrictions impacting the number of people we could join together to break our fasts. I’m delighted that this year we will once again be able to unite with friends and loved ones.

Togetherness and strengthening our faith in the company of others has always been a key part of Ramadan, so I’m looking forward to meeting the wider community across London as we break our fasts together.

As well as celebrating, this is also a time to think about sacrifice, to remember those who are less fortunate and to take the time to count our blessings. This year, my thoughts will be with the people of Ukraine, who are fighting for their freedom, the refugees who had to flee Afghanistan, and everyone around the world suffering from hardship. I’ve been inspired by the charitable efforts of our communities, who have gone above and beyond to help refugees arriving to this country and to raise money for those in need.

Charity has always been a huge part of Ramadan, and this year will be no exception.

On behalf of all Londoners, I want to say thank you – and from my family to yours, Ramadan Mubarak.
