The opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), has extended its felicitation to Muslims across the country as they begin Ramadan, tomorrow, Wednesday, 15 May 2018.

This period of 30 days fasting is one of the five pillars of Islam.

The NDC in a statement prayed that, as Muslims prepare for the task ahead, “Allah, The Most Merciful, will uphold their prayers” and keep Ghana on paths of righteousness.

“May this Holy Month of Ramadan, bring us more, penitence, and sober reflection as a nation as we continue to forge ahead in our deep quest to build a better Ghana,” the statement added.

Ramadan is the ninth month in the Islamic (Hijri) calendar. It is the most holy month in the calendar for Muslims as it is believed the Quran was revealed to Prophet Mohammed during Ramadan.
