Christians Should Support Muslims During Ramadan – Kofi Sarpong

 Popular gospel musician Superintendent Kofi Sarpong says it is proper
for true Christians to support Muslims during the month of Ramadan
because the long period of fasting is not an easy task.

“If you have not fasted before, you would not understand where I am
coming from but what I mean is that as Christians we should show empathy
and put ourselves in the shoes of our Muslim brothers and sisters
during these long days of fasting.

“There are several things we can do to support them by making the
fasting less difficult for them. For example if you know you have a
Muslim neighbour who is fasting, why would you chose to be eating some
sumptuous meal with a nice aroma in the person’s presence when there are
other places you can eat without the person seeing you to get tempted?

“There are also many people who do not have enough to break their
fast with and we can all do some charity especially in these times. The
blessing of the fasting would not only go to the Muslims; it comes to us
all because we are worshiping one creator,” Kofi Sarpong noted.

He said Ghanaians should appreciate and continue to protect the
peaceful religious co-existence the country is enjoying and not take it
for granted.

Accra. The items included bags of rice, boxes of milo and ideal milk,

Imam for his continuous support.
