As Muslims in Ghana and across the country celebrate Eidil-fitr after the end of the sacred month of Ramandan, Muslims in the Suhum Municipality were not left out.
Interviewing the chief of Suhum Ayekotse Zongo, Chief Adamu Seidu, he noted that Muslims started fasting on the 9th of July 2013 and ended on the 7th of August 2013, which for the entire month of fasting, Muslims restrained themselves from physical pleasures of life, study and recite the Quran in the quest to receive blessings from their maker.
?We offer prayers for forgiveness and guidance and share with the needy, help inculcate values of personal discipline, patience, sacrifice for the good of themselves and the larger population, by giving and compassion,? he added.
He noted that during the period of fasting they educate the Muslims youth to refrain from certain behaviors that will not help during the fasting, like dressing indecently, adding that, ?that period is a dedication period and we ensure that we dedicate our whole being to Allah and remind holy.?
Chief Adamu Seidu averred that as they mark the end of this sacred month of Ramadan Allah will fulfilled their hopes and grants them the blessings they sought from Him during the holy month.
He extends his gratitude to all Muslims in Ghana and across the country at the end of this sacred month of Ramadan a happy celebration of Eidil?fitr, ?baka de salla?.
He concluded by advising Muslims youth not to engage themselves in bad things in the name of the celebration but rather thank the maker for making it possible for them to complete the fasting.
Also, the Suhum Municipal Chief Executive Hon. Samuel Kwabi congratulates the entire Muslim community for a successful conclusion of a long month fasting culminating in the celebration of the eid-il-fitr.
This period of supplication to Allah through fasting and prayers is an exercise that does not only benefit individual Muslim but all the people of the country and beyond.
He finally pleaded with Ghanaians to accept whatever results that comes out from the Supreme Court for peace to reign in Ghana.
