Ramadan Mubarak to the Western Cape’s Muslim community
I wish the Muslim community in the Western Cape Ramadan Mubarak as they begin this meaningful period of reflection, prayer and fasting. Although this Ramadan will once again be different to other years due to the pandemic, we know that this blessed month will be filled with strength, enlightenment, patience and your extended actions of generosity and charity.
