Alie Kabba Speaks: Ramadan Mubarak!
Fellow Sierra Leoneans,
Muslims around the world will soon begin actualizing reverence for one of the Pillars of Islam. It is an act of faith and a blessed opportunity for all of us to do penance, and wonder at the omniscience and omnipotence of Allah, and to be tolerant and accommodating of all of Allah’s wondrous creations.
We in Sierra Leone are unique for the rapport and comity between Muslims and non-Muslims. We have faith that at the end of it all, we are all God’s children. We prove it every day, including the celebration of Muslim and Christian holidays by all, just as our forefathers had done for generations before us. We are truly blessed as a nation. May these blessed ties among us continue to be strengthened into the future!
I call on all Sierra Leoneans to pray for our beloved country so that it will rise again and live up to its true promise of unity, freedom, justice, economic prosperity, democracy, rule of law, fidelity to the constitution, free and fair elections, and love and tolerance.
Have a blessed Ramadan!
Your humble servant,
