The Minister of Chieftaincy and Religious Affairs, Stephen Asamoah Boateng, has described the National Chief Imam, Osmanu Nuhu Shurubutu, as a testament and symbol of peace and unity between Muslims and Christians in the country.

Making a donation of assorted food items to the National Chief Imam yesterday at his Fadama residence, Mr Asamoah Boateng prayed for God’s strength, good health and longevity for him to continue impacting all Ghanaians, irrespective of religious or political party affiliations.

According to him, Ghana needs such a personality to tap from his repertoire of wisdom, good counsel and advice to govern the country.

Blessing in disguise He noted that “Coming here, the visit in itself is a blessing, looking at the downpour this morning. It is the month of Ramadan, so the Ministry thought it wise to show care and compassion during this period.

That’s why my delegation and I are here to give this token”.

“With the help of my directors, we have brought you something small to keep you moving. We wish you a smooth and successful Ramadan, and once everything is over, we’ll join you for the prayers,” he assured.

He asked for God’s mercy and protection and unity among all citizens of the country, as the Muslims engage in their fasting and prayers.

Appreciation For his part, Sheikh Sharubutu thanked the Minister of Chieftaincy and Religious Affairs for the gesture, and prayed to Allah to support his executive management in all their endeavours.

He said Allah had enjoined Muslims to live in peace and harmony with people who had not prevented them from practicing their religion or driven them from their homes.

He quoted the Holy Qur’an as saying that Allah had created human beings from two mates and made them into nations and tribes so that they acknowledge one another and coexist peacefully.

Sheikh Sharubutu said Ghana is blessed as Muslims and Christians live in peace and harmony, saying they sit at a table and discuss national issues.

The National Chief Imam, therefore, urged Ghanaians to be thankful to Allah for the peace so that He continues to bless the country with peace.

He referred to Allah’s injunction in the Holy Qur’an that if a man shows gratitude for the favours of Allah upon him, Allah will increase the blessing but if the man fails to show gratitude, Allah’s penalty is severe.
