Sheikh Mohamed, SMS, Ramadan

The Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi has sent a personal greeting to all residents on the advent of the holy month of Ramadan.

His Highness Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces has sent a personal SMS greeting to all UAE residents on the advent of the holy month of Ramadan.

The message reads:

"Dear fellow citizens and residents,

"Please allow me to share heartfelt greetings from my brother Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed, President of the UAE, as we celebrate the Holy Month of Ramadan."

"I remain grateful for your patience, resilience and kindness in these unprecedented times. Together we can ensure the safety of our cherished families,
friends and communities by continuing to practice the necessary precautionary measures. As one, I know we will overcome this pandemic together."

"May God bless you and your families. Ramadan Kareem."

The UAE announced the beginning of Ramadan after the crescent was sighted on Thursday evening, making today the first day of the holy month.

Observed by nearly 1.8 billion Muslims across the world, this is the first time the faithful across generations will be observing the holy month in the midst of a pandemic.

Millions of UAE residents have geared up to observe the Holy month, praying for the quick recovery of those infected with Covid-19 and for the souls of those who've lost their lives to the deadly disease.

Sheikh Khalifa wished the leaders and their people continued good health and well-being, and further progress and prosperity for Arab and Islamic nations.

Meanwhile, Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai, shared similar messages of hope, saying: "We congratulate the leadership and people of the Emirates and the Arab and Muslim people on the advent of the blessed month of Ramadan. We ask God for the blessings of this month and that you are blessed with health and happiness. Thank you to all the teams that work round the clock for the comfort and safety of our society."
