The Muslim holy month of Ramadan is set to commence.
Initially, the fasting should have started today, but the crescent on the moon did not appear yesterday, as was expected.
Therefore, according to the Central Islamic Organisation of Guyana, the month of Ramadan will begin tomorrow.
The CIOG extends greetings to the entire Muslim community on the occasion.
Meanwhile, the Guyana Ahmadiyya Anjuman Isha’at-Islam also extends to all Guyanese Ramadhan Mubarak.
In a statement, the Anjuman called on all to observe the commandment of Almighty Allah to exercise the period of fasting in pursuit of enhancing their spiritual values.
‘At the same time, we should look within ourselves to help our less fortune brethren in our society in the form of Zakaat”.
The Muslim body says that it is important to combine these practices with extra prayers, with the objective designed by Allah to show in practical ways the brotherhood of humanity.
The statement added that a lot is required of the Muslim community in the month of Ramadan, and calls for great attention to be paid to this event. “Let it be a guiding light to carry on with our lives the high ideals a Muslim is supposed to achieve in this world, where even an atom’s weight of goodness will be awarded by Almighty Allah”.
The Organisation in its message, says it hopes that, “Allah rewards us all during this period of Ramadan, as we carry out our duties in peace and harmony to obtain blessings for ourselves and families and all dutiful Muslims”.
