The National Democratic Congress (NDC) has extended heart felt felicitations to Muslims across the country for a successful Ramadan.

In a statement signed the General Secretary, Mr. Johnson Asiedu Nketia, he says the party recognizes all Muslims who have allowed the teachings of Islam to put them through the period of, denial, abstinence, penitence, as well as self-sacrifice.

"As the nation in general, and our Muslim brothers and sisters in particular, prepare to observe the Eid tomorrow, it is the wish of the NDC that the festive day will be observed in joyful solemnity; remembering the prayers and cries that were made to Allah," a part of the statement read.

Ramadan is the ninth month of the Islamic calendar, and is observed by Muslims worldwide as a month of fasting to commemorate the first revelation of the Quran to Muhammad according to Islamic belief.

This annual observance is regarded as one of the Five Pillars of Islam. The month lasts 29–30 days based on the visual sightings of the crescent moon, according to numerous biographical accounts compiled in the hadiths.

While fasting from dawn until sunset, Muslims refrain from consuming food, drinking liquids, smoking, and engaging in sexual relations. Muslims are also instructed to refrain from sinful behavior that may negate the reward of fasting, such as false speech (insulting, backbiting, cursing, lying, etc.) and fighting except in self-defense.

Copy of The Statement below:

It has been a month-long period of, intense fasting and prayers by all Muslims, and the National Democratic Congress (NDC), extends our heartfelt felicitations to all Muslims who allowed the teachings of Islam to put them through the period of, denial, abstinence, penitence, as well as self-sacrifice.

We give immense thanks to Allah the Merciful and Most High, for seeing all our Muslim brothers and sisters through the sacrificial period of prayers and fasting, and we congratulate them for living by the tenets of the Holy Quran.

As the nation in general, and our Muslim brothers and sisters in particular, prepare to observe the Eid tomorrow, it is the wish of the NDC that the festive day will be observed in joyful solemnity; remembering the prayers and cries that were made to Allah.

May the peace and guidance of Allah be upon Mother Ghana now and always, and may this period of the Festival of Breaking Fast, pour more blessings upon our dear Country, Ghana.

Johnson Asiedu-Nketiah
(General Secretary, NDC).
