In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful. All praise is due to Allah, Subuhana Wa Taa’la (SWT). We testify that there is no god but Allah, SWT. He is the only One worthy of worship. To Him alone we bow and from Him alone we seek help. We also testify that the Holy Prophet Muhammad (SAW), is His Messenger. May the blessings of Allah be on our noble Prophet of Islam, his family, his Companions, and all believers. May the blessings of Allah be
on every one of us.
Brothers and sisters, I greet you in the best of form of greeting: As-Salam alaikun Waharamatullah Wabarakatuh.
Happy Islamic New Year 1439 AH. May Allah grant us the privilege to witness many years on the surface of earth in the fold of Islam.
