He asked the Muslims to look into themselves and see whether during the previous year they disobeyed Allah in the matters of prayers, everyday affairs, their actions, in the matters of right and wrong, or whether they violated the rights of Allah and the rights of the people which might make them shameful before their Creator and Prophet Muhammad (PBUH).
“Let us change our individual lives by making favors and acceptance of Allah above all else in our worldly and religious affairs.”
Shehbaz Sharif said, on the occasion of the new Islamic year, he will appeal to the nation to pledge that at the individual and collective level, they will make tolerance and brotherhood their aim in all religious and political matters.
“Let us make a pledge at the start of the new Islamic year that we will serve the country with complete honesty.”
He prayed to Allah Almighty to keep everyone safe during the new Hijri year from all disasters and difficulties and let this year bring peace, progress and prosperity for Pakistan, Muslim Ummah and the whole of humanity.
