Happy Ramadan to all fellow Muslims in Ghana, Africa and across the world as we embark on this honourable journey, the fast of Ramadan. Ramadan is a period of intense devotion and reflection, a period when we as Muslims are tasked to fast during the day and perform rigorous prayers at night, reciting and listening to the entire Qur’an over the course of an entire month to please the Mercy of our Lord.
It is a mandated duty of every able Muslim to partake in this fasting and abstinence period.
“Fasting is prescribed for you as it was prescribed for those before you, so that you may ward off evil” so states the Holy Qur’an 2:183.
It is therefore my prayer that Muslims will use this holy month of Ramadan to pray for Allah to ward off the evils that plague our society drawing us back into evil ending.
Ramadan period is the greatest of opportunities in a lifetime for mankind which should not be wasted at all. Every seconds of this Ramadan season is a blessing and an opportunity for us to seek a new life of hope from Allah. This Glorious month should unite us and instil in us fellow-feeling, so that we can create a society where Allah will appreciate and accept our worship, granting us success in this life and Paradise the hereafter.
Peace be on us all.!
RAMADAN KAREEM !
