In his Eid-ul-Fitr message to Ghanaians, Vice President Alhaji Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia advised them to celebrate the festival with family and loved ones in order to further foster peace, love, and fraternity among them.
The Islamic festival of Eid-ul-Fitr, which marks the conclusion of Ramadan, the Muslim holy month of fasting, is marked nationwide with prayers and other Islamic observances during the first three days of Shawwl, the 10th month of the Islamic calendar.
“Eid-ul-Fitr is here with us again. And it is that special moment to be thankful to the Almighty Allah for giving us strength and endurance to go through a month-long fasting in the holy month of Ramadan. Having been at our spiritual, compassionate and charitable best during the past month, let us mark the Eid-ul-Fitr with our families and loved ones to further promote peace, love and brotherhood,” Dr Bawumia stated.
“As we seek to uphold these beautiful virtues of Ramadan even beyond Eid, we also pray to the Almighty Allah to grant us all of His rewards for all sacrifices and good deeds during Ramadan,” Bawumia wife Samira Bawumia also said.
The day for the Eid-al-Fitr celebrations in Ghana has officially been set as today, Saturday, April 22, 2023.
