Muslim Association of Malawi (MAM) has urged Muslim community to utilize the month of Ramadan to pray for Covid-19 situation in the country.
This comes as Muslims worldwide are expected to start fasting in the Holy Month of Ramadan on 14 April.
In an interview, MAM Spokesperson Sheikh Dinala Chabulika said the Moslems who will be part of the Holy month should bear in mind that some dedicated Muslims have failed to make it because of death or sickness.
According to Chabulika, the Muslim community should take advantage of the Holy month to pray to God for healing as the country continues to fight against Covid-19 pandemic.
“Our country is going through natural healing. We need to pray for our country and make sure that the pandemic which has engulfed the whole world including Malawi, God should take out this disease,” said Chabulika.
Chabulika also said the Muslim community should utilize the Holy month of Ramadan to come closer to Allah.
“We would like to advise Muslims throughout the country to take an advantage of this. I believe it is not for everyone, there have been out there who wanted to join us in fasting in the Holy month of Ramadan, but they couldn’t do that maybe because they are dead or sick. We should take this advantage and thank God that he has chosen us to be among those who are going to fast this month of Ramadan. So we should pray hard for ourselves,” said Chabulika.
Meanwhile, State President Dr. Lazarus Chakwera has wished all Muslims in the country the best as they begin observance of the Holy month Wednesday, 14 April 2021.
The President has asked for God’s peace to be with all Muslims during the Holy month of Ramadan.
Ramadan is the ninth month of the Muslims calendar that is observed by Muslims worldwide.
During this month, Muslims fast from dawn to dusk and it is believed that the Holy Book of Quran was revealed from God to Prophet Muhamad.
