Ramadan and MCO can co-exist beautifully

WE write this as scholars of Islam, family physicians, pharmacists, medical doctors and public health specialists. The Covid-19 pandemic is affecting Malaysia medically as well as in emotional, psychological and spiritual ways.

The holy months of Ramadan and Syawal will soon be upon us. As a nation, Malaysia must soon make very difficult choices. Should we hold Ramadan bazaars, terawih prayers or balik kampung? Can we follow our religious, community or family traditions?

All of us play multiple roles at the same time: we are Muslims or adherents of other religions; we are health professionals on the frontlines; and we are fellow Malaysians. We want the best health for you and your families, in physical, emotional, spiritual and religious terms.

Making the world a better place

IN today’s society, many people, young and old, seem to have forgotten that being polite and respectful means considering how others are feeling. Sadly, everyone is subconsciously only out for themselves and has no concern for the effects their behaviour has on others.
