Imam Ali (A.S.) said: "O people! Verily this day of yours is the day when the righteous are awarded and the wretched are losers... O Servants of Allah! Verily the minimum reward for those men and women who fasted (during Ramadhan), is an Angel, who calls out to them on the last day of the month of Ramadhan (saying): "O Servants of Allah! Rejoice in the glad tidings that all your previous sins have been forgiven."  

May Allah's (swt) blessings light up the path and lead us to peace, unity and open all the doors of success
