First Minister Nicola Sturgeon sends her best wishes to all Muslim communities observing Ramadan.
“Ramadan is the holiest month of the Islamic calendar and is a time for spiritual reflection for Muslims in Scotland and across the world.
“It reminds Muslims to think about those who are less fortunate and the struggles of some of the world’s poorest and most vulnerable people. It focuses on family and charity, and goes right to the heart of the Islamic faith. That selflessness and desire to care for others is an example that we all can all follow.
“I’d like to take this opportunity to say thank you for the positive influence the Muslim community has in Scotland and wish everyone celebrating this month, Ramadan Mubarak.”
