MEMO TO : THE UNIVERSITY COMMUNITY
RE : RAMADAN MUBARAK
Fasting during the month of Ramadan is one of the Five Pillars of Islam, and one of the earnest acts of worship a Muslim can perform. It involves fasting during the daylight hours from dawn to sunset which cleanses the mind, body, and soul from the spiritual and physical impurities. It is an act that brings the hearts of Muslims together on a world-wide level as they endeavor to practice the virtue of self-discipline in unison.
Hence, we in the Ateneo de Zamboanga University are one with our Muslim brothers and sisters — not only those in our community but also the Muslims of Zamboanga City and the rest of the world —in their observance of Ramadan.
