Eid ul-Adha is a profound reminder of values of devotion, compassion and unity, says Akufo-Addo

Eid-ul-Adha is a festival celebrated among Muslims all over the world in remembrance of the sacrifice that the Prophet made out of his strong faith in Allah

President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has extended his good wishes to Ghanaian Muslims on the occasion of the Eid-ul-Adha and urged the citizenry to embrace peaceful co-existence at all times.

“As you gather with family and friends to mark this sacred day, may this day inspire us all to engender peace, love and mutual respect within our communities,” he said.

In a message to the Muslim community, posted on his Facebook page on Sunday, 16 June, the president said the citizenry needed to continue to work together to build a prosperous and harmonious Ghana.

“This significant occasion, which commemorates the steadfast faith and sacrifice of Prophet Ibrahim, is a profound reminder of the values of devotion, compassion and unity,” he noted.

Eid-ul-Adha is a festival celebrated among Muslims all over the world in remembrance of the sacrifice that the Prophet made out of his strong faith in Allah.

The Islamic holy book, the Quran, cites in Surah As-Saffat (37:102) that Allah was so pleased with the Prophet’s submission to sacrifice his son that He made this demonstration of sacrifice and faith a permanent part of a Muslim’s life.

Hence, every year, Muslims all over the world celebrate the occasion with prayers and slaughtering a lamb, sheep, goat or camel to honour the good deeds of the Prophet.

Ghana marked the national event at the Independence Square, Accra, with prayers for the
nation’s progress, unity and sustainable growth.

Vice-President Dr Mahammudu Bawumia was the Guest of Honour.
