I also seek your prayers that Allah will grant me victory – Mahama tells Muslims

National Democratic Congress (NDC) flagbearer, John Dramani Mahama has conveyed his best wishes to Muslims across Ghana as they observe the Eid-ul-Adha celebration today, Sunday, June 16.

The former president also expressed his heartfelt wishes to the respected Chief Imam, Sheik Osman Nuhu Sharubutu, and called for prayers for the upcoming elections.

“Today is a joyous occasion, Eid Mubarak to you all. May Allah accept our supplications. May Allah see us through next year. May Allah grant us a long life. Today, as I mentioned, is a day for celebration, and we should remember to extend our care to the poor, orphans, and loved ones. May Allah accept our prayers.”

“…May Allah fulfil all our heart’s desires. To those who have completed the Hajj, may Allah ensure their safe return. May Allah continue to bless our nation, Ghana, with peace. May Allah guide us through the forthcoming elections with success. On this occasion, I also seek your prayers that Allah will grant me victory,” he expressed.

Eid-ul-Adha is a significant Islamic festival that celebrates Prophet Ibrahim’s unwavering commitment to Allah, exemplified by his readiness to sacrifice his son, Ismail.

In a merciful twist, Allah intervened and replaced Ismail with a ram just before the sacrifice.

This divine directive tested Prophet Ibrahim’s allegiance and his absolute willingness to carry out Allah’s will. Hence, Eid ul-Adha is aptly referred to as the festival of sacrifice.

In his Eid Mubarak message on Saturday, Mr Mahama encouraged Muslims to show compassion towards their family, the needy, and orphans.
