The men and women of the Office of the Presidential Adviser on Peace, Reconciliation and Unity join the members of the Muslim faith as you observe Al-Isra Wal Mi’raj. This sacred occasion holds deep significance, reminding us of the remarkable journey that Prophet Muhammad took from Al-Masjid Al-Haram (Makkah) to Al-Masjid Al-Aqsa.

May this occasion be a time of personal introspection. Let us be inspired by the Prophet’s journey, as we promote peace, mutual understanding, and compassion within our communities and beyond. His example teaches us the importance of kindness, tolerance, and respect for one another amidst our cultural and religious differences.

As we reflect on the lessons from Al-Isra Wal Mi’raj, let us reaffirm our commitment to fostering harmony, friendship and goodwill among everyone. Let us go beyond our personal interests and reach out to our neighbors, especially those who are most in need, and help them in whatever way we can. Let us be the tide that lifts all boats.

May this blessed occasion serve as a reminder of the virtues of peace, solidarity, and goodness that lie at the core of the Islamic faith. Let us embrace these principles and apply them in our daily lives so that we can create a world where all people can live in dignity, harmony, and mutual respect.

We wish our Muslim brothers and sisters a joyous Al-Isra Wal Mi’raj that is filled with blessings, peace, and spiritual enlightenment. ###
