The vice-chairman of the National Democratic Congress and the former Ghana High Commissioner to Saudi Arabia, Alhaji Said Sinare believes every person alive will die one day.
Alhaji made this pronouncement in Accra on 24th July 2021 at the funeral of Grushie Chief's father.
The former high commissioner on Saturday joined other mourners and well-wishers at the funeral rites of the father of the Grushie Chief of Accra, Sarki Mojo Ibrahim.
Alhaji Said Sinare was joined by the former deputy CEO of MASLOC, Alhaji Mustapha Abubakar, Alhaji Haruna Rashid of the research Directorate as well as many other National, Regional and Constituency Executives of the National Democratic Congress (NDC).
Alhaji Said Sinare used the opportunity to console the family of the late Sarki Mojo Ibrahim.
Quoting a verse from the Holy Quran, the NDC bigwig said every person alive today will die one day, urging the people gathered to continually live in harmony with their neighbours.
He prayed for the soul of the departed father of the Grushie Chief of Accra.
Read his full statement below:
I joined other mourners with my entourage yesterday, Saturday, 23rd of July 2021 to pay our last respect to the father of Grushie Chief of Accra, Sarki Mojo Ibrahim.
May the good Allah strengthen the family before, during, and after the burial of their late father.
One thing I know is that “Indeed, Allah [alone] has knowledge of the Hour and sends down the rain and knows what is in the wombs. And no soul perceives what it will earn tomorrow, and no soul perceives in what land it will die. Indeed, Allah is Knowing and Acquainted.” (Quran, 31:34)
Although often forgotten about or guiltily pushed away from our thoughts, the fact remains that this world is but temporal. Death is the only thing certain for us all and is the only thing truly guaranteed in this life.
But Islam teaches us not to fear death and to embrace our fate with the next world. While it is easy to fear the pain of death or the unknown, it is our lives here on earth today that we must fear the most. For those who truly believe in Allah, death is a welcome passage.
My prayers are with them.
