O you who have believed, decreed upon you is fasting as it was decreed upon those before you that you may become righteous [2:183]
Ramadan Mubarak from the entire team at the Halal Monitoring Committee. We hope you enjoy each and every moment of this blessed month. May Allah SWT ease your hardships & shower you with peace & prosperity during this holy month. Ameen.
The best time of the year is finally here. Ramadan! It’s a time to reflect, a time to get closer to Allah SWT and an opportunity to be with our loved ones. Ramadan, however, is much more than not eating but it is a month of good habits, treating others with kindness, showing care to our neighbours, listening/reading/understanding the Qur’an, studying the life of our beloved Prophet Muhammad SAW, developing good habits, eating wholesome foods and increasing in acts of voluntary worship.
The Mosques may be closed this month but the doors of repentance are wide open. Make the most of this Ramadan and let this month act as the gateway to becoming the best version of yourself.
We would like to take this opportunity to wholeheartedly thank you for your continued support during these difficult times, as well as the entire HMC team. From the Ulema to the Monitoring officers and the inspectors, to the Regional Manager/Auditors and the office staff, the Halal Monitoring Committee would like to wish you a blessed Ramadan Mubarak.
