News Dispatch with Father Omolo Beste wish Muslim fraternity in Kenya a successful end of the 30 days long fast. Ramadhan is e very important of the Islamic calendar. It is the month during which Muslims do not only observe fasting from morning twilight (Fajr Prayer) to the evening twilight (Maghreb Prayer), but also helping needy people.
The term Ramadhan is literally driven from al-Ramd which means ‘burning heat of the sun. By fasting therefore, Muslims burn the sin. That is why fasting is obligatory both on the poor and the rich.
In Mombasa, Chief Kadhi Sheikh Ahmed Shariff Muhdhar’s has urged Muslims faithfull to maintain peace and co-exist in harmony with fellow Kenyans. The government has already gazetted 29th July as a holiday to enable Muslim faithful celebrate and share with the needy people.
