Praise be to God, who helped us to perceive the month of Ramadan, and helped us to fast and pray, and prays be upon our Prophet Mohammed, his family and his companions.

My dear brothers & sons,
Al Salam Alaikom Wa Rahmatu Allah Wa Barakatu,

I speak to you in this blessed night of the last ten days of Ramadan, as our usual habit to meet and connect with you on goodwill and love, to renew my congratulations of the Holy month Ramadan, and to congratulate you with its last ten nights. Praying Almighty to accept our fasting, prayers, and our good works and praying to return this holy month on our beloved country and people and on our Arabic and Islamic nations with goodness and blessings. He listens and responds.

Brothers & sons,

Almighty bestowed us with innumerable and countless blessings. He has blessed us with the grace of Islam, bestowed us with a country where the people enjoys the goodness and prosperity. His sons are surrounded with communications, interdependent and unite under a state with constitution, institutions, and systems that insures a decent life for every person in the society. It is a great blessing that we must always feel, root its meanings in our souls and always thank and praise Almighty for it.

Brothers & sons,

In this sensitive period that our region is passing through and what some of its countries has witnessed of risks and conflicts, we are in so much need for the unity of word, standing together, synergy and to stick to our national unity that Allah has protected Kuwait with in the past. It is the fortified fence to ward off risks on our country and its safety. We are called to draw lessons from which left from the conflicts and wars in these countries. A wise man is the one who pays attention to others and realizes what he enjoys in his home country of safety, security, stability and prosperity.

Brothers & sons,

Our world today is beset by passions and private opinions in the light of the openness and the fast media development, which required guidance and advice to direct our sons to the behavior of the right path. Regrettably, we are witnessing misuse of social media tools, where some are using it as an entertainment tool, and a destructive element to our society sublime values, chastity and ethnic morals inherited from our parents and grandparents through publishing tendentious articles and offensive tweets on the country and skeptical intentions and publications full of suspect, without any evidence. This spreads the spirit of hatred and courts became infested with such issues. It is a disgraceful behavior full of sins and forbidden by our Islamic religion which ordered us to protect people's reputations.

We hope that audiovisual and print media, which are always a place of our appreciation and pride, will not be misled with all what is written in the social media and will not publish it without checking, in order not to contribute in the growth and highlight this exotic phenomenon in our society.

Brothers & sons,

Our youth have our attention and the attention of the government alike, as we have said repeatedly; they are the most precious wealth, and the best investment. We have to develop their abilities, skills and their talents, to urge them to acquire knowledge to be more aware and mature, to fortify them from stray thoughts and delinquent behavior, and to motivate them for more giving and participating in the development of their countries. What pleased us is the beginning of The National Fund for Small and Medium Enterprise Development activities, hoping to facilitate its procedures so that it is easy to take advantage of it.

Brothers & sons,

We all remember with grief the terrorist bombing at the Imam Al-Sadiq Mosque in such a Holy month last year which resulted death of dozens and wounded hundreds. The goal of the planners and the bomber with their satanic behavior is to ignite sedition, sow discord and strife between the members of Kuwait society. But, they were defeated in front of Kuwait people's unity and synergy that showed the originality of Kuwaiti sons and their sympathy at good times and bad times and their adherence to their national unity, praying Almighty to bestow His mercy and forgiveness upon the souls of the martyrs to rest in eternal heavens, and to speed up the healing of the injured.

Brothers & sons,

We are living these blessed nights of the last ten days of Ramadan praying Almighty to forgive our sins and erase our mistakes, accepts our fasting and prayers, and to unite our hearts and goals, for the love of Kuwait and work for it, and to protect our country and sustain the grace of security, safety, prosperity, and to unite the word of Muslims and their rows and save their countries.

Recalling with appreciation and reverence our late Amir Sheikh Jaber Al-Ahmed Al-Jaber Al-Sabah and The Father Amir Sheikh Saad Al-Abdullah Al-Salem Al-Sabah, praying Almighty to bestow upon them his mercy and wide forgiveness, and to inhabit their souls in eternal paradise with the righteous and those are the companion, and mercy be upon our martyrs who exerted their pure blood to defense our dear country, and all the dead to elevate their homes in the Gardens of Delight.

Wasalamu Alikom Warahmatullahi Wabarabatoh
