Muslims advised to be thrifty during Ramadan to avoid debt

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.
