I send my warmest regards and best wishes to all Muslims in Enfield, across the country and around the world, as you observe Ramadan.
This holy month provides an important time, not only, for Muslims to reflect upon the teachings of Islam, but also for our society as a whole to recognise the fantastic contributions Muslims make to our way of life.
The Islamic values of compassion, tolerance and supporting the community are principles that we should all hold dear. And I have the utmost respect for the Muslim community’s charitable work and services to the poor.
As you gather with your family, friends and loved ones to fast, pray and perform iftar, I hope you all have a peaceful and happy Ramadan.
Rt. Hon Joan Ryan MP
