Imam Hussein grateful to donors for successful daily iftar at National Police Mosque
The Chief Imam of the Ghana Police Service, SUPOL Imam Husein Abdur Rahim Husein has expressed delight at the success of the Mosque’s daily iftar program since the commencement of this year’s Ramadan.
The mosque has been feeding nearly 500 people every day since the beginning of Ramadan, and several people, including the young and the old, troop there to break their fast on daily basis.
Considering the daily high-turn out and the fact that the iftar is a full meal, Imam Hussein said that it required substantial money to be able to sustain the program, and that the daily Iftar couldn’t have been possible without the benevolence of fellow Muslims.
“I am very happy with the success of this year’s Iftar because the turn out has been very high since we started. High turn out also means high cost and we are very grateful to all those who have contributed to make this possible,” said Imam Hussein.
“Without their benevolence, it would have been very difficult for us so may the Almighty Allah bless everyone involved in this.”
The National Police Mosque, based in Cantonment in Accra, is one of the most patronised mosques in Accra.
During Ramadan, the patronage hits sky-high as people from near and far visit the mosque for Iftar and also observe prayers.
