She said the donation was their widow’s might to support the Chief Imam’s efforts at feeding the vulnerable and less privileged in society, particularly during the Ramadan.

Hajia Abubakar said: “In this regard, the GFZB is supporting the Chief Imam in whose house the needy, homeless, helpless and the aged find their solace and daily sustenance.”

She noted that Muslims just ended Ramadan, a very important month in the calendar of Islam where they are enjoined to abstain from food, drinks and intensify act of worship that pleads God.

Eid-Ul-Fitr is a moment when families and communities come together to share and strengthen their relationships, to be charitable towards the less privileged and to learn to live in harmony with their neighbours.

Hajia Abubakar said the annual donation had been a tradition which began in 2012 and by God’s grace they had been able to sustain it.

Sheik Nuhu Sharubutu, who received the cheque on behalf of the entire Muslim community, offered prayers for GFZB and thanked the members for their continuous generosity towards Muslims.

He said all Muslims must thank Almighty Allah for bringing them to the end of the Holy month of Ramadan and prayed for the sustenance of peace in the country.

“The Holy Quran teaches us not to fight among ourselves but rather co-exist and learn to tolerate each other,’’ he said, and called on Ghanaians to stay united so as to ensure peace before, during and after the 2016 election.
