Happy Koriteh in advance
Friday, August 17, 2012
Koriteh; a day when the Muslim Ummah end the holy month of Ramadan. This is a
day that Muslims the world over pray together for each other for progress,
peace and prosperity, and also rejoice in sharing the bountiful blessings of
Allah with love and affection.
As The Gambia joins the rest of the Muslim world tomorrow to celebrate this day, we pray that Almighty Allah continue to shower His eternal blessing and guidance on our beloved country and leadership. May we continue to live in the atmosphere of peace and unity we have come to nurture within the past decade. We also pray that with the glory of this faithful day, may the Almighty Allah have mercy on the human race and rain His abundant blessing on our brothers and sisters the world over who are facing the bitterness of war, famine, earthquakes, terrorism, hunger, starvation and other dehumanizing conditions.
This is a day the people of this world, both Muslims and non-Muslims, should forget about their differences regardless of political ideologies, race colour or sex, and come together in the spirit of oneness and forgive each other of the sins and wrongs committed in the past, and pray for a better society in the interest and benefit of the human race. As we observe this day let us not also forget our fallen colleagues who have passed onto the silent land.We should spare a moment of our time and pray for those souls, that have departed before us so that they can rest in eternal peace with Allah's mercy on them.
wish to seize this opportunity to remind the populace that the end of Ramadan
should not mean the end of good behaviours and practices. The conduct that
guided us throughout this holy month should be the same that we should
endeavour to continue with throughout the year. We should at all times remember
that submission to Allah has no time frame, as long as we are people obedient
to our lord, it is incumbent upon us to uphold his commandments any time
Let’s continue to act within the dictates of good moral behaviours, be honest, respectful and always keep remembering those people who do not have the pleasure of food and wealth. One more, as we observe 'Idul Fitr' tomorrow, the management and staff of Observer Company wishes everybody a HAPPY, HAPPY CELEBRATIONS, and many, many more returns.
