The NPP aspiring Member Of Parliament for Ahafo Ano South-West, Mr. Elvis Osei Mensah Dapaah aka Okumkom has today, 22nd April, 2023, wished all Muslims in Ghana especially those in his constituency a happy Eid celebration.
He expressed his delight after the Muslims around the globe brought their fast (Azumi) to an end.
I’m a Facebook post he said;
“Eid ul Fitr marks the end of the holy period of Ramadan and the beginning of Shawwal, the tenth Islamic month. On Eid ul Fitr (also known as Eid al-Fitr or Id ul-Fitr), Muslims thank Allah for the holy Quran.
The sacred book of the Muslims was revealed to Prophet Muhammed on Laylat al-Qadr, one of the odd-numbered nights during the last ten days of Ramadan. Hence the significance. And moreover, fasting (Sawm) is one of the Five Pillars of Islam, and therefore Muslims fast during the holy month of Ramadan.
Happy Eid Ul-Fitr to all my Dear Muslim friends in the Ahafo Ano South West Constituency and worldwide at large ,May Allah accept our prayers and make things easy for us all .
