The Sempe Muslim Akwashongtse, Nii Adotey Odaawulu I, has commended the President of The Tijjaniya Movement of Ghana, Sheikh Abdul Wadud Harun Ciessey and the organizers for a successful annual Maulid (Birth of Holy Prophet).
The Sempe Muslim Akwashongtse made the commendation when he and his entourage joined the National Chief Imam of Ghana, Sheikh Osman Nuhu Shaributu, Sheikh Muneeri from Katsina State, Nigeria, a Muslim cleric and well-known Philanthropist within the Muslim Communities in Ghana, Malam Alhassan Abokin Ango and among other prominent Muslim personalities across the world to mark the celebration.
The Sempe Muslim Akwashongtse described Sheikh Abdul Wadud Harun Ciessey as a very humble and respectable Muslim leader with a unique leadership quality that calls for all leaders to emulate. This year’s annual Maulid celebration he said has been one of the best and has brought together prominent Muslims from around the world under one umbrella to foster unity and development within the Muslim Communities in Ghana. The Maulid has been described by many as unique due to measures put in place by the organizers and its related events that seek to promote the good image of the Muslim Communities in Ghana and the world.
Nii Adotey Odaawulu I, revealed that the celebration of Maulid was aimed at preaching the “seera” of the Holy Prophet and it requires that the people practice the deeds of the prophet in their daily activities. He called on Muslims especially the youth to practice good habits and ensure that they propagate Islam at all times adding that Islam is peace hence the need to ensure that peace prevails when dealing with others. The youth were adviced to be assertive and diligent since they are the cornerstone of society. The Sempe Muslim Akwashongtse prayed to Allah seeking his blessings, peace, unity, religious co-existence and prosperity for the country. He finally prayed for Allah’s mercy and forgiveness to the souls of departed ones.
