On the occasion of the Holy Feast of Eid- ul-Adha,, The Gambia Democratic Congress (GDC) under the leadership of Honorable Mamma Kandeh extends best wishes to all fellow Gambians and Muslims in the Gambia and beyond, and by extension to the entire Muslim Ummah.
As this holy feast is an occasion of sacrifice, we join fellow Muslims all over the world in extending our peace and love to all brothers, sisters, families, and loved ones. Islam is a religion of peace so we seize this occasion to also celebrate the devotion and loyalty of Prophet Ibrahim to the Almighty Allah, and call on all to approach the Eid as an act of devotion and togetherness and wish the best for one another and our neighbors, and continue to urge others to share what little we have with others always.
However, as we are all aware of the existence of the Covid-19 pandemic, the leadership of the GDC urges everyone to continue observing precautionary measures outlined by health experts and wear masks throughout the holiday to protect yourselves and your families as Sunnah dictates that we must interact and great one another on such occasions.
May the Almighty Allah, omnipotent and omnipresent continue to shower his blessings upon us and our loved ones, may he accept our prayers and grants us continued peace in The Gambia and around the world, where there is sadness or war may the Almighty hear our prayers for it to end. May All our prayers for a peaceful world be heard and above all we implore all Gambians to serve and protect our motherland and her people from all harm and protect us from natural and man made disasters.
We wish all a festive Eid Mubarak. Happy Tobaski.
Hon. Omar Ceesay
