PUTRAJAYA: Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak has advised Muslims to continue the discipline and good deeds that are done in the fasting month to other days of the year.
He called on Muslims to make use of Ramadan as a process to improve oneself into becoming a better person.
The month of fasting would be a good opportunity for one to build spiritual, mental and physical strength, he said.
“May this strength that we gain be extended to the rest of the year,” he said when launching the Putrajaya Ramadan Festival 2014 yesterday.
The festival feature is that it is the largest Ramadan bazaar in Putrajaya and had reportedly attracted some half a million visitors last year.
Many traders have set up stalls along the Kiblat Walk, the Perbadanan Putrajaya Complex boulevard and an open field situated next to the Tuanku Mizan Zainal Abidin mosque for this occasion.
Apart from the sale of food and Hari Raya goods, free food is also prepared for 2,000 people every day for buka puasa at the mosque, which is popularly known as Masjid Besi.
The festival is scheduled to end on July 27.
