The President, His Excellency Sheikh Professor Alhaji Dr. Yahya AJJ Jammeh, Babili Mansa has received a Ramadan message from Yassin Abu Ied, the Honorary Consul of The Gambia in Zurich, Switzerland. The message reads:
Assalamu Alaikum! Once again we are blessed with the holy month of Ramadan, Alhamdulillah.
It’s time to contemplate the Holy Verses of Surah Al-Baqara, to impose self-restrain on ourselves so that to achieve peace and harmony within personality, community and worldwide. As hundreds of millions of Muslims worldwide will fast from dawn to dusk and offer prayers to attain righteousness, peace and prosperity for our families, loved ones and acquaintances, let us all review our deeds and intentions aimed at strengthening the Ummah at large, as well as contributing to harmony and understanding between all children of Adam.
The celebration of this great Islamic holiday reminds us that faith, commitment and prayer give spiritual peace, and respect for the close and sharing with those who have less are universal values we all strive for. Solidarity and mutual trust are common values that unite us always. I am truly convinced that in the future we will further foster inter-religious respect.
With such thoughts, the consulate of the Islamic Republic of The Gambia in Zurich, Switzerland, and on the behalf of all the Gambians in Switzerland, we congratulate all Islamic religion believers the holiday of Ramadan and wish you His Excellency Sheikh Professor Alhaji Dr. Yahya Abdul–Azziz Jemus Junkung Jammeh Babili Mansa and family and the entire Gambian population pleasant days filled with peace and prosperity.
