Ramadan is always a time where Muslims attain nearness and closeness to God so that He becomes a reality in their lives as they bear the rigours of fasting for the sake of following a Divine commandment.
The Council commends the leadership of the various Muslim communities in Ghana for their relentless ommitment and contributions towards religious harmony, peace and nation building.
As a Council, we will continue to work closely with our fellow Muslim brothers and sisters to promote interfaith harmony, peace and development. We will also continue to pray and work against any potential acts of violence and terrorism under the guise of religion because our respective religious traditions abhor such acts.
In pursuance of this, the Council is planning an Interfaith Harmony Week in September, 2015, to strengthen interfaith relations, dialogue on issues of mutual interest and also deepen our collective efforts towards nation building.
We ask the good Lord who has successfully seen you through this year’s Ramadan to continue to bless, protect, guide and grant you renewed spiritual energy in Jesus’ name.
The Council wishes every Muslim a Joyous Eid-ul-Fitr!
Rev. Dr. Kwabena Opuni
