Alhaj Maulvi Noor Muhammed Bin, Ameer and Missionary In-Charge of the Ahmadiyya Muslim, has called on women to inculcate into their children good and sound moral principles.
He said mothers are the managers of the home and this places a huge responsibility on them, adding that with such a responsibility they could imbibe in them the essential elements of truth, honesty, sincerity and above all, the fear of God.
Maulvi Muhammed Bin was speaking at the 36th national Annual Convention of the Ayhadiyya Muslim Women?s Association-Ghana in Takoradi.
The Convention was on the theme: ?Building a Peaceful Society: The Contribution of the Muslim Woman.?
The Ameer and Missionary leader said despite the many resources of Ghana peace continues to elude the nation because of the wrong attitude and behaviour of some selfish, corrupt and involuntary individuals who place materialism above all else, to the neglect of their fellow human beings.
Maulvi Muhammed Bin said women as foundation layers must strive to lay good and sound spiritual, moral and ethical grounds for their children to save the society from its social crises.
Mr Paul Evans Aidoo, Western Regional Minister, said women have the fundamental role in ensuring a peaceful society adding: ?You are the first teacher and best role model for your children.?
He urged them to support their husbands in educating their children saying, ?Give me a good mother and I will give you a good nation”.
