Ahmadiyya Head calls on Chief Imam

The Ameer and Missionary-In-Charge of the Ahmadiyya Muslim community in Ghana, Alhaj Maulvi Mohammed Bin Salih, has reiterated the commitment of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Mission to rally fully behind the National Chief Imam Sheikh Osman Nuhu Sharubutu in his quest for a harmonious and united Muslim front to ensure peace and tranquility.

Maulvi Mohammed Bin Salih gave the assurance when he led a delegation from his mission to pay a courtesy call on the Chief Imam at his Fadama residence to formally welcome him from the pilgrimage recently.

The visit was to also formally introduce the newly-appointed head of the Mission to the Chief Imam.

The Ameer commended the Chief Imam for the affection he showed him during the tenure of the late Maulvi Wahab Adam who passed away on June 22, 2014.

He said that in spite of minor differences, Muslims can with a united front work towards bringing peace and progress to the nation.

Maulvi Bin Salih expressed regret that some schools were forcing Muslim children to participate in Christian worship, something he noted goes against the regulations of the Ghana Education Service (GES).

He paid glowing tribute to the Chief Imam, for, as he put it, showing the whole world that he is a man of peace and unity by physically and spiritually supporting the Mission during the demise and funeral of the late Dr Maulvi Wahab Adam.

The Chief Imam on his part expressed gratitude to the new Ameer and assured him of his support.

He also prayed to Allah to protect him and give him the wisdom to discharge his duties.
