As a lot of families around the Muslim World prepare to spend this Friday in remembrance and celebrations associated to our beloved Prophet ( May peace be upon him ), I send this message to all the employees of Zarai Taraqiati Bank:
It is a privilege to be working for a Specialized Agricultural Development Bank in the sense that it gives an opportunity to earn a livelihood while serving the small farmers of our beloved Pakistan. To serve this country in its goal to increase Agricultural Produce – so that the Islamic Republic can play its rightful role in the community of Nations – is to serve Allah and his Rasool ( May peace be upon him). On this auspicious day, when we remember our great prophet ( may peace be upon him ), we must also resolve individually as well as collectively that we will not leave any stone unturned in facilitating the farmers of Pakistan . And the way to do this, as Bankers, is to reach out to them at their doorstep and provide them with the financing and the know how to improve farming practices. We will have to challenge ourselves in order to improve our service quality. We must promise to go out and serve farmers each morning when we leave our homes for work.
May Allah guide us to the straight path of the blessed ones, and may we all be guided by the teachings of the Greatest and the Last Prophet. Ameen
