The month of Ramadan holds a special meaning to Muslims – it is a time for doing good to others, be it through our deeds or charity, for self-reflection and personal growth, as well as spiritual purification. It also signifies times well spent with loved ones, as we all look forward to catching up with family and friends over iftar, the breaking of the fast each evening.  

As Tuesday, 13 April 2021 marks the auspicious start of Ramadan, we wish you a blessed and fulfilling Ramadan! May the holy month bring you happiness and good health. 

To all those celebrating, may the month ahead bring you courage and strength to take on every challenge of life. Do soak in the opportunity to reset, re-imagine and re-evaluate your energies.

To those not celebrating, do take the opportunity to learn more about the meaning and practices of the holy month, in order to strengthen our bonds at home, the workplace and beyond. Do check-in on the wellbeing of your fasting colleagues, support them with flexible working practices (if requested), and perhaps you can plan a team celebration on the occasion of Eid/Hari Raya.

Most of all, continue to enjoy the wealth of diversity around us!
