The opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) has wished to Muslims across the country well as they begin Ramadan, today, Wednesday, 16 May 2018.
The 30-day fasting is one of the five pillars of Islam.
The NDC, in a statement, prayed that as Muslims prepare for the task ahead, “Allah, The Most Merciful, will uphold their prayers” and keep Ghana on paths of righteousness.
“May this Holy Month of Ramadan, bring us more, penitence, and sober reflection as a nation as we continue to forge ahead in our deep quest to build a better Ghana,” the statement added.
Ramadan is the ninth month in the Islamic (Hijri) calendar. It is the most holy month in the calendar for Muslims as it is believed the Quran was revealed to Prophet Mohammed during Ramadan.
