KUANTAN, March 23 — Prime Minister Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim wants Muslims in the country not to treat Ramadan as any other month but as a special month for them to increase their acts of worship.

He said the Quran was revealed in Ramadan as guidance for humanity, adding that Muslims should understand, appreciate, and practice the teachings of the Holy Book in their daily lives.

“Meaning (during Ramadan) we must work more, our morals should be better, and we must ensure that our values are enhanced to increase our taqwa (piety).

“So, I hope that Ramadan will provide an opportunity for Muslims to set a good example, not shout at and be angry with people, punish, slander or insult others,” he said at the state-level Madani breaking of fast event here today.

Held at Tengku Ampuan Afzan Mosque in Indera Mahkota, the event was also attended by Home Minister Datuk Seri Saifuddin Nasution Ismail and Pahang Menteri Besar Datuk Seri Wan Rosdy Wan Ismail. — Bernama
