“We must also submit ourselves completely to the will of Allah (SWT), strengthen our bond with our Creator – Allah (SWT) and deepen our love and devotion with our beloved Prophet Muhammad (SAW) so that we as Ummah are able to discharge our religious and milli responsibilities in a much better way,” it added.
