Repent or suffer for your evil deeds on judgment day-N/R Chief Imam tells Muslims


Muslims in the northern region have been urged to desist from cheating and acts that go contrary to the dictates of Islamic teachings.  

The Northern regional Chief Imam, Sheik Abdul-Salam Ahmed, stated this at the 2013 Eidul Fitr sermon at the Tamale jubilee park.

The prayer climaxes this year’s Eid-ul-Fitr, a period devoted for peace, forgiveness, fellow-feeling and self-diagnoses, following a successful month-long fast, which is one of the five pillars of Islam.

He reminded the Muslims Ummah about the dire consequences on the Day of Judgment. 

The regional Imam also expressed worry over the phenomenon of ritual practices that hit the Tamale metropolis in recent times and urged those engaging in such practices to repent or suffer the penalty on the day of accountability before almighty Allah.

Sheik Abdul-Salam lamented about the manner in which people’s behavior in their quest to become rich either by hook or crook.

This, Sheik Abdul- Salam said, is worrying and urged the people in the region especially, the youth to exercise patience and restrain themselves from evil deeds.

The Northern Regional Minister Bede Ziedeng has congratulated the Muslims on their successful completion of this year’s Holy Month of Ramadan in the atmosphere of peace and tranquility.

The Northern regional minister also underscored the importance of peace in the development of every nation. He, however, expressed shock about the behavior of certain individuals against the president's nominees for the district chief executive positions.

Mr Ziedeng said government’s patience towards acts of vandalism is waning out and will soon punish severely any acts of violence in the country.
