Ghana Muslims1 Muslims mark Eid ul adha tomorrow

Once again, the Islamic calendar is getting to an end and Muslims around the world will on Friday celebrate this year?s Eid-ul-Adha.

The annual celebration of Eid-ul-adha falls on the 10th day of Zhul-hijah, the last month on the Islamic calendar.

It also marks the completion of the course of the annual Hajj in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.

The celebration of Eid-ul-Adha is in commemoration of the command given by Allah to Prophet Abraham to sacrifice his first son, Ishmael to him.

It also has the characteristic of the annual reunions of Muslims all over the world.

Emphasizing the significance of the day, one of Ghana?s revered Islamic scholars, Sheikh Issahak Nuamah in an interview with Citi News called on Ghanaians to use the occasion to pray for peaceful elections this year.

He said: ?We should bear in mind that life is meaningless without peace, life is meaningless without harmony and life is meaningless when it is shrouded with chaos and ambiguity and therefore we are calling on all Ghanaians on this unique day that Eid-ul-adha should strengthen us and direct our energies towards a new way, that we will be carrying in our hearts and minds and bodies to make sure that December 7 records another feet for mother Ghana.?

?It presupposes that when you give out a gift to somebody it means you are showing signs of togetherness, love and care and so this particular spirit that we are going to reinvigorate today should reflect on December 7,? he stressed.

In commemoration of the Eid-ul-adha, the Interior Ministry has declared Friday October 26 a statutory public holiday.
