Let us take this opportunity to touch and change lives, and end the tyranny of poverty and injustice. Let us use this time to promote compassion and respect for human dignity, he added.Fasting officially startsThursday. This is the time where we renew our devotion and reflect on our faith as Muslims who are guided by the teachings of the Holy Qur’an and the Almighty and merciful Allah, he said. This is the time when we strengthen our commitment to lasting peace and development in Mindanao through fasting and prayers, he said even as he vowed to offer prayers for the attainment of genuine peace in Mindanao.He said the desire for peace and the Muslims are faced with so many challenges but he believed these can be hurdled.
