On the occasion of the commencement of Ramadan Fast today, the NPP wishes all Muslims in Ghana and across the globe, a fruitful Ramadan. Ramadan, as we all know, is a period within the Islamic calendar where Muslims all over the world, observe Fasting, in accordance with the dictates of the Holy Qur’an and the Islamic faith. This period is characterized by alms-giving and significant supplication to Almighty Allah.
Ramadan happens to be the Month in which the Holy Qur’an was revealed to Prophet Muhammad (S.A.W) and so, it is deemed, the most important and blessed month of the year. Through Fasting, a Muslim experiences hunger and thirst, and sympathizes with those who have little to eat and drink every day through almsgiving in order to fully benefit from the bountiful blessings of the Holy Month.
As Muslims all over the world, begin this all-important religious festival, the NPP, through its National Nasara Wing, challenges them to manifest these virtues and completely submit themselves to the very dictates and requirements of Ramadan. We also call on them, particularly Ghanaian Muslims, to use this occasion of intense devotion to pray for our leaders, government and nation, to overcome the ills plaguing our society and put us on the path of sustained growth and prosperity.
The party notes with satisfaction, government’s timely intervention in fixing the recent challenges experienced in the power sector and also rolling out a number of economic interventions to enhance the livelihood of the Ghanaian people and Muslims in particular as they embark on this religious enterprise.
This, we believe, has been made possible by the grace of Allah and so, we continue to submit to Him especially in this Holy Month. It is our hope that, by the end of this blessed month, our country would never be the same.
Once again, we wish all Muslims Ramadan Mubarak and pray that Almighty ALLAH accepts our Fast and grants us Jannatul Firdaus.
