Sallah Fest, an annual feast and musical festival was launched on Wednesday, 13th June, 2017 on the Chapter O Street at Nima.
The annual event which is largely credited for bringing together thousands of Muslims across the Muslim communities in Accra on one platform will be held on the 26th of June, 2017.
The festival which is in its six year, is a flagship event organized by EXP Ghana, an Experiential Marketing Agency with over 34 years of experiential marketing and PR experience and renowned Ghanaian Hiplife group VVIP, a three-man musical group who traces their roots from the Nima community and has over the years won a lot of laurels both in Ghana and abroad.
Addressing invited guests and the media at the launch Nii Futah, chief of Nima highlighted the importance of the Ramadan saying it is a month where Muslims all over the world are expected to be generous to others.
The month of Ramadan is a remarkable month throughout the history of Islam, a month where rewards and alms are doubled. Generosity and giving are attributes that Allah likes for Muslims since Allah’s and Prophet’s generosity to their people also multiplies in the Ramadan period. We should be most active in spending our wealth to help those who are less fortunate in our society.
Let us all in this period of Ramadan keep in mind, the saying of ‘Ubaid Ibn ‘Umair, rahimahu Allah, on the day of judgment people will be gathered as hungry as they have ever been and as thirsty as they have ever been and as naked as they have ever been. Then, he who has fed others for the sake of Allah, ‘azza wa jalla, Allah will feed him till he is full”.
