The month of Ramadan which is the 9th month on the Islamic Calender, is deemed by Muslims as the most blessed of all months, seeing as it is the month in which the Holy Prophet Mohammed (PBUH) started receiving revelations of the Holy Qur’an from Allah (God Almighty).
In this month, Muslims the world over fast for 30/29 days, (which is obligatory and falls within the five (5) Islamic Pillars) to seek the face of Allah through repentance and other acts of worship.
Dr Bawumia’s message reads:
“On the occasion of the commencement of Ramadan, Hajia Samira and I, extend our warm wishes to Muslims in the country and around the world, as we observe the month-long fast. The sacred month of Ramadan offers a unique opportunity to renew our faith in Almighty Allah, and also show love and kindness to all, regardless of their religious affiliation, to reinforce the importance of peaceful coexistence as a people.
