The national executives of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), led by the General Secretary of the party, John Boadu, has paid a courtesy call on the National Chief Imam, Sheikh Osman Nuhu Sharabutu at his residence in Accra, as a gesture in recognition of the significance of the last ten days of Ramadan.
It is the night of one of which is the “Laila-tul-Qadr”, meaning, the “Night of Power”, in Islam that the Holy Quran was revealed to Prophet Mohammed (S.A.W) and the Quran says, worshipping Allah that night, is worth much more than worshipping Him in over 1000 months without that night.
It is for this reason that Muslims intensify their supplications to Almighty Allah in the last 10 days of Ramadan particularly at night, as no one knows exactly which of the ten nights, will be the “Night of Power”.
Mr Boadu used the occasion to thank Almighty Allah for bestowing on His Eminence the National Chief Imam, enormous blessings and granting him grace, long life, and wisdom, thus making him one of reasons why the country is the most peaceful country on the continent and beyond.
He requested from the Chief Imam, to say special prayers for the party, the government and country at large, particularly in view of the significance of the last ten days of Ramadan.
Sheikh Sharabutu, who recently turned 100, on his part, expressed gratitude for the gesture from the NPP leadership, following which he said special prayers for the party, the government as well as the nation.
The delegation finally donated an undisclosed amount of money, as well as several bags of rice and sugar as part of the party’s support for the important religious festivities.
As part of the delegation were the party’s National First Vice Chairperson, Madam Rita Asobayire, the National Third Vice Chairman, Michael Omari Wadie, the National Nasara Coordinator, Abdul Aziz Futah and his deputies, Alhaji Maiga, a founding father of Nasara, the Deputy National Women Organiser, Hajia Saudatu Saed and the Greater Accra Regional Chairman of the party, Divine Agorhom and among others. –ghanaweb.com
