Vice President Dr Mahamudu Bawumia and his wife, Samira Bawumia has called on Muslims to pray for the success of Ghana and also to contribute to the forward movement, including the ability to sacrifice for the progress of the country.
He made the call in a message to the Muslim community as they mark this year’s Eid ul-Adha.
“As we celebrate Eid today, the sacred day of Arafat, let us thank the Almighty Allah for granting Muslims across the world another Eid. Let us continue to pray for his sustenance.
For the first time in recent history, the Hajj is being performed on a limited basis in the holy land. As the Hajj performance is ongoing, the rest of us observe fasting and our supplications in accordance with the teachings of the holy prophet Mohammed,” he said.
He added that, “Let us take the opportunity of the blessings this special moment brings and remember our country Ghana and our loved ones in prayers today and tomorrow.”
“Eid-ul-Adha reminds us and teaches us the inspiring story of loyalty, obedience, sacrifice and selflessness of the Prophet Ibrahim who was ordered by Allah to sacrifice his only beloved son and he obeyed Allah’s command.
“On this special occasion I urge all Muslims and all Ghanaians to imbibe the values demonstrated by Prophet Ibrahim in our everyday lives towards humanity, our family and our nation,” he said.
“So as we celebrate this Eid, let us all continue to observe Covid-19 prescribed protocols. Together with my dear husband and our family we wish you all Barka de Sallah,” she said.
