The Ghana Muslim Mission has urged all Muslims to observe the Eid prayers at home and follow all the Ghana Health Service guidelines in order to keep safe from COVID-19 and other infections.

The Mission through its National Chairman Dr. Sheikh Amin Bonsu admonished Muslims to try and maintain their new state of life by constantly getting closer to Allah through devotion to prayers and frequent reading of the Holy Quran as well as an increase in good deeds and eschewing all forms of evil.

Describing this year’s Ramadan as special due to the coronavirus and ban on social gatherings he said: ”This year’s Ramadan and Eidul-fitr is exceptional due to COVID-19 and the ban on social gatherings. During the entire month, Muslims the world over prayed to Allah to end the COVID-19 pandemic. Our cries to Allah especially during the last ten (10) days increased showing how weak we are as humans. Insha- Allah the COVID-19 would be over shortly by Allah and life would return to normal.”

He further urged Muslims to continue praying for Ghana and the globe as we continue to battle the outbreak.

”May Allah grant the people of Ghana sustenance, good health filled with good deeds and prosperity and save the nation from all kinds of calamities including COVID-19. We pray for Allah’s forgiveness for our nation and the world at large. We pray for healing of all COVID-19 patients in Ghana and beyond as well as protection of front line workers, children, and expectant mothers among others.

We pray for peace in troubled parts of the world where people especially women and children are being tortured, starved and suffer all sorts of hardships as a result of war and civil strife.”

Ramadan has been and it’s always been a great month filled with high spirituality, love, goodness, charitable acts, piety, more prayers and lots of kindness. This exercise is meant to remind Muslims of their duties to Almighty God and mankind, as they emulate the generous and pious, peaceful and decent character of the Holy Prophet Muhammad (Peace Be Upon Him).

This year’s Ramadan and Eidul-fitr is exceptional due to COVID-19 and the ban on social gatherings. During the entire month, Muslims the world over prayed to Allah to end the COVID-19 pandemic. Our cries to Allah especially during the last ten (10) days increased showing how weak we are as humans. Insha- Allah the COVID-19 would be over shortly by Allah and life would return to normal.

We urge all Muslims to observe the Eid prayers at home and follow all the Ghana Health Service guidelines in order to keep safe from COVID-19 and other infections.

As we exit the month of Ramadan we urge all Muslims to try and maintain their new state of life by constantly getting closer to Allah through devotion to prayers and frequent reading of the Holy Quran as well as an increase in good deeds and eschewing all forms of evil.

As expected, Muslims all over the world are celebrating this momentous occasion. We appeal to all Muslims to use the occasion to show more love to the poor and needy no matter their faith by sharing whatever goodies with them. Anyone who shares out of his wealth with others gains the favor of Allah.

We would like to also entreat the Youth to celebrate this occasion humbly and solemnly with the fear of Allah. They should try as much as possible to respect the laws of the country as we celebrate the Eidul-fitr and desist from any acts of lawlessness while celebrating the Eid.

Let’s focus on the socio- economic development of our people such as establishment of educational institutions and creation of jobs. May Allah accept our prayers.

Eid Mubarak!!! Warmest regards, SHEIKH DR. AMIN BONSU (NATIONAL CHAIRMAN- GHANA MUSLIM MISSION)
