The President of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela, Nicolás Maduro Moros, on behalf of the people and Government of Venezuela, extends best wishes and a happy and blessed Ramadan to all Muslims in Venezuela and throughout the world.
During the month of Ramadan, Muslims commemorate the revelation of the Qur'an to the Prophet Mohammed through the fraternal spirit of solidarity and prayer from the heart, through fasting, acts of charity, prayers and the reading of the Qur'an.
Ramadan is a time of self-reflection aimed at deepening one's spiritual growth and renewing a sense of appreciation for the many blessings God provides. This spirit calls us to strengthen our communities, help those in need, and serve as a good example of how to live.
The people and Government of Venezuela are united in the hope of a blessed Ramadan that reminds us of the common values and cultural wealth that Muslims bring to our heroic nation, in which we all have the blessing of living in full peace, freedom, understanding and solidarity, regardless of our origin or belief.
