Chief Imam of Ghana speaks out in support of Ahmadis

The National Chief Imam of Ghana has shown his support for the persecuted Ahmadiyya Muslims and called on Muslims to forget their differences and unite.

96-year-old Sheikh Dr Osman Nuhu Sharubutu who himself is a Sunni Muslim was appointed as the National Chief Imam of Ghana in 1993, He is also a member of Ghana’s National Peace Council. He expressed his support for the Ahmadiyya community while speaking at the community’s annual Islamic Convention which is taking place this weekend in the UK.

While speaking at the convention Sheikh Nuhu said:

” I am delighted to attend the annual Ahmadiyya convention, In Ghana the Ahmadiyya Muslim community is well known for its efforts towards peace and interfaith work. The community has peacefully existed along with other sects, and there is no hiding the fact that Ahmadiyya community has done a lot of work for the promotion of education and helped improve health care. We have a long history of strong and friendly relations with the Ahmadiyya community, I have always sought advice from the community’s National on important matters. In Ghana, we have a Ruet-e-Hilal Committee and the Ahmadiyya community is a prominent member of the committe.”

The Sheikh ended his speech by saying:

Even though our sects are different, all of us Muslims are united, Our cause is the same, We have a strong belief that Prophet Muhamamd PBUH is our Messenger, our book is the Holy Quran and Kabba is our Qibla (direction). Like Allah has brought us together in this blessed location, I pray that Allah also brings us together in Heaven on the day of Judgement”

In 1974 Pakistan declared the Ahmadiyya sect of Islam a non-Muslim minority and since then the community has faced severe persecution which critics say is the result of the laws that specifically target Ahmadis. The Ahmadis are banned from reciting the Quran or saying the Islamic greeting of ‘AssalmoaAlikum‘, If found guilty they can go to jail for up to two years.

  1. Allhamdulillahi Robil alameena.My special salaam to the National Imam of Ghana,may Allah continue guiding him and give him good health and long life.The Pakistani government and their Islamic clerics are trying all their efforts to get rid of Ahmadiyya Muslims while Allah is supporting Ahmadis daily,growing from strength to strength and carrying the flag of Islam fying throughout the world.The guided and right people are testifying to the true Islsam Ahmadiyya as the true representative of the religion of Muhammad (saw).The present Pakistan government have not learnt anything from the fate of their past leaders who spearheaded the persecution of Ahmadiyya in the past.What was the end of Ali Butho and Zia-ul-Haq? Wa

    makaru wa ma kara llahu was llahu khaerul makreen.Ahmaddiyya is a divine root and no one dare uproot it.

  2. The unity of Islam depends on the Right path. Guide us in the right path. when we come to understand that the right path is not about who is right but what is right, all Muslims and other religions will unite under what is right for their souls and survival. All men shall follow the light when darkness sets in. The Holy prophet of Islam urged all Muslims to show their support on to the Mahdi upon his appearance in Islam. That is what the chief Imam of Ghana has demonstrated to the world. And may Allah reward him and accept his prayers. Amen.

  3. Good work always speaks for itself. Jamat Ahmadiya is now being acknowledged for its work for the mankind reflecting the true spirit of Islam.
