Use Eid to reflect on what is good and holy – Rawlings to Ghanaians
AUG 11, 2019 GENERAL NEWS

Former President, Jerry John Rawlings and his wife, Nana Konadu Agyemang-Rawlings have in an Eid-ul Adha message admonished Ghanaian Muslims to commit to good and holy deeds which will bring peace and progress to the country.

Making reference to how the Prophet Ibrahim submitted to the will of God through the ultimate sacrifice of his son, they asked for more prayers for the success of families and deprived in the communities.

“The message read: It is a period for us to reflect on how much we are willing to commit to what is good, holy and noble. Our prayers and sacrifices to Allah as we mark the day should be full of a common desire to see to the good of our families, communities and especially the deprived.”

The family further urged Ghanaians to shun negative practices that do not bring any benefit to the country.

“Let us remember to pray for peace, love and progress in our country and commit ourselves to exorcise negative tendencies that do not benefit us or our society.”

Eid al-Adha is an Islamic festival to commemorate the willingness of Ibrahim (also known as Abraham) to follow Allah's (God's) command to sacrifice his son.

Muslims around the world observe this event.
The Rawlings’ Eid message
“On the occasion of Eid ul Adha, Nana and I join Muslims to mark the festival of sacrifice.

Eid ul Adha celebrates Ibrahim's will to submit to God through the ultimate sacrifice – his son.

It is a period for us to reflect on how much we are willing to commit to what is good, holy and noble.


Our prayers and sacrifices to Allah as we mark the day should be full of a common desire to see to the good of our families, communities and especially the deprived.

Let us remember to pray for peace, love and progress in our country and commit ourselves to exorcising negative tendencies that do not benefit us or our society.

Eid Mubarak! Happy Eid to all!”
