As Muslims in Liberia join Muslims in other parts of the world, to celebrate the holy month of Ramadan, Dr. Isaac G. Wiles Foundation for Education and Community Empowerment, Incorporated (DIGWFECOE), calls on all Muslims to use the period of Ramadan to continue to pray for enduring peace and reconciliation in Liberia.
According to the founder and (CEO) of (DIGWFECOE), Dr. Wiles said after 14 years of brutal civil war in our country, all Liberians should now avoid religious stereotypical attitude and negative behaviour toward one another, because they divide us and keep us apart when we should be a united nation and country, Liberia.
The DIG WFECOE boss, who recently arrived in the country after a brief period of absence from Liberia, said Muslims should continue to remain steadfast and pray for lasting peace and continuing reconciliation; noting that there are more things that unite us than divide us.
“Even in sports (athletics) our national passion, Christians share with Muslims and equally, as Muslims with Christians, as they recreate together on the field of play” Dr. Wiles reiterated.
“Therefore we should all both Christians and Muslims take this period in Liberia to devote ourselves in prayer and supplication for peace to prevail, and for the common good of All our people.
“The holy month of Ramadan is among the five pillows of Islam dedicated to fasting and praying for God’s blessings upon its people; which Muslims behold to reflect on their relations to Allah and their fellow men”; he noted.
