NSW Premier Mike Baird’s Ramadan Message

NSW Premier Mike Baird has released a special message to mark the Islamic fasting month of Ramadan.

During Ramadan, Australian Muslims are expected to abstain from food and drinks, and other comforts from dawn to dusk.

In a message directed at El Telegraph Weekend readers, Mr. Baird encourages all Muslims to invite people from all faiths to join them in breaking the fast in the evenings, a time known as Iftar.

Mr. Baird also sends warm wishes to all those embarking on the month-long journey of Ramadan.

“Ramadan holds special significance in the lives of Muslim Australians. It is a time of spiritual reflection and asks members of the Islamic faith to fast between sunrise and sunset.

The focus and reflective nature of Ramadan supports our way of life and is a timely reminder of the values we all share, including kindness, honesty, family and charity,” said Mr Baird (see the NSW Premier’s full Ramadan message below).
