Bismillahir Rahmaneer Raheem.

Assalamu’Alaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh.

I extend my warmest congratulations to all the passers of the 2022 Bar Examination, especially to our Bangsamoro passers. Your success in this rigorous exam is a manifestation of your hard work, dedication, perseverance, and tawakkul in the Almighty Allah SWT.

I welcome you all to the legal profession and enjoin you to embrace your new role with a strong sense of commitment and purpose. As you may know, lawyers play a critical role in the administration of justice. As members of this noble profession, you are now entrusted with the duty of upholding the rule of law, promoting justice and equity, and safeguarding the rights of the marginalized and oppressed.

So choose to become a lawyer with empathy and compassion for others.

Indeed, we are now at the next level of our Jihad, where the pen is mightier than the sword. The role of lawyers is critical in this endeavor, and we must rise to the challenge and be part of the solution. Therefore, I invite you to join the ranks of lawyers who are committed to promoting and protecting the rights of the Bangsamoro people.

Now more than ever, the Bangsamoro people need more lawyers who are dedicated to serving the people and promoting justice. The Bangsamoro people need you.

Once again, congratulations to all the passers of the 2022 Bar Examination. May ALLAH bless you and guide you in your legal journey.
