Wednesday August 11, 2010, KUALA LUMPUR: Muslims should spend prudently during the holy month to avoid getting trapped in debt which can drag the family into trouble, said the Prime Minister.In his Ramadan message issued here yesterday, Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak also reminded traders not to take advantage of the high demand and indiscriminately raise prices during the month.
He said Muslims in the country were fortunate they could fulfil their Ramadan obligations in peace compared to those in other countries facing natural crises or being trapped in war zones.
“Let us all together celebrate Ramadan with our friends from the other races in the spirit of goodwill as inspired by ‘1Malaysia 1Ummah (1Malaysia, 1People)’,” he said as reported by Bernama. He added that Ramadan was also the time Muslims strived for greater strength of character, reinforced their spirituality and relationships with family members and friends. Najib and his family wished Muslims a blessed Ramadan.
