As we enter the blessed month of Ramadan the Abudu Royal Family; N-yeba Mion-Lana (HRH) Alhaji Abdulai Mahamadu, all family members and sympathizers, wish all Muslims the best of good health, faith, wealth and ease in this difficult time of Corona Virus pandemic.
It was not for nothing that Naa Zanjina chose Islam for our great kingdom. Our willingness to sacrifice for generations, make peace, and show total devotion and obedience to Allah (Lord of the Worlds) make us unique as a people as Allah Himself praise us (Muslims) as the best of mankind who encourage goodness and discourage evil. We must make it our effort in this Ramadan to stay at home, avoid social gatherings and adhere to our President’s directives on Covid-19. We certainly are not in normal times.
We are all encouraged to remember our enviable Dagbon Kingdom in our prayers in this difficult but blessed month. Let’s all pray for Allah to sustain our peace and progress chalked so far and increase us in abundance of His Blessings.
Ramadan is a gift from Allah, and this period should be used to pray devotedly for Allah to wash away the Covid-19 pandemic.
May Allah accept our worships and sacrifices and make us among His pious servants who are destined for Paradise!
