“Today, April 13, 2021 marks the beginning of the Holy Month of Ramadan for the Islamic year of 1442. I extend best wishes to you my Liberian Muslim brothers and sisters both at home and abroad as you embark on this month long journey in search of spiritual fulfillment through fasting and praying to the Almighty Allah for His mercy and forgiveness”, the Political Leader of the Alternative National Congress (ANC), Mr. Alexander B. Cummings, Jr., said yesterday in a special Press Release.
Mr. Cummings furthered, “Ramadan is also a period during which Muslims unite, rally their meager resources to support the needy and work for common causes within their communities. It is precisely this sense of community that our country needs at this time to be able to counter the adverse effects of the global Covid-19 pandemic and resuscitate our failing economy”.
The ANC leader, therefore, encourage “our Muslim brothers and sisters to pray for the country and the leadership that will be required to improve living standards for all Liberians. May the Almighty Allah accept the fasts and duas (prayers) you will offer during this Holy Month”.
“To our Muslim partisans in the ANC, CPP and all Muslims of Liberia – home and abroad, we say Ramadan Mubarak”, Mr. Cummings concluded.
