Former president Jerry John Rawlings and his wife Nana Konadu Agyeman Rawlings, on the occasion of the feast of breaking the fast â€“ Eid ul Fitr, have congratulated Muslims for the successful conclusion of the month-long fast.
A statement issued in Accra on Friday June 15, Kobina Andoh, Communications Director at the office of the former president, said the couple commended Muslims for their month-long dedication to the purity of mind and action.
â€œYour fasting period allows you to commune directly with Allah, cleanses us of negativity, strengthens the faith and offers our community success in all its endeavours.
â€œWe thank the Chief Imam, Sheik Nuhu Sharabutu, various Muslim leaders and the entire Muslim community for interceding on behalf of the whole country.
â€œAs we break the fast let us continue to maintain a positive outlook in all we do and seek Allahâ€™s guidance and blessing to enable us pursue our daily lives in peace and unity,â€ the statement concluded.
