The Greater Accra Zabarma chief and president of Ghana Zabarma Association, Alhaji Pro-Umar Abubakar Tanko, has sent a message to Muslims across the world on the commencement of the Ramadan fast.

In a statement issued by Hajiya Muniratu Mahmoud the Jakadiya of the Accra Zabarma Chief and an executive member of the association on Social Media on Friday, Chief Umar Tanko called on Muslims to be mindful of the fact that the ultimate goal of Ramadan is to get closer to their maker (Allah), adding that Muslims should reflect with the belief that all their Ibadat would be accepted.

He further called on Muslims to try hard in seeking the favour of Allah by helping the needy.

According to him, Prophet Muhammad in his days, spent on the poor and the needy during Ramadan.

"Therefore I am appealing to fellow Muslims in Ghana and around the world to follow the good examples of the Holy prophet" he noted.

Fasting he said, is not just about staying hungry or thirsty, but an avenue to strive for inner purification and self-accountability as well as inculcate righteousness and exemplary life.

He further appealed to all Muslims to listen to their leaders, observe good Hygiene practice and adhere to social distancing protocol.

"Stay safe. Enjoy free Coronavirus Ramadan. May Allaah forgive our trespasses" he added.

As we fast, we should be reminded of our ultimate goal of getting closer to Allah.

We should be reflective and believe our ibadat would be accepted. Each and everyone of us should endeavor to seek the favour of Allah by helping someone in need.

The Prophet in his days spent on the poor and the needy during Ramadan; therefore I am appealing to fellow Muslims in Ghana and around the world to follow the good examples of the Holy prophet.

This is a blessed month, don't always be at the receiving end but rather a giver. Give now even if it’s a piece of date, for tomorrow might be a day late.

Fasting is not just about staying hungry or thirsty, but an avenue to strive for inner purification and self-accountability as well as inculcate righteousness and discipline life

I am further appealing to you listen to your leaders, observe good Hygiene practice and adhere to social distancing protocol.
