Muslims urged to advocate for peace and stability in Malawi

As Muslims worldwide celebrate the conclusion of the holy month of Ramadan, they have been urged to persist in praying for peace and stability in the country.

Sheikh Hanif Kazembe, Deputy Secretary-General of the Ulama Council of Malawi, made the call at Dedza Mosque grounds during the conclusion of Ramadan.

“The fasting month of Ramadan has endured for 1445 years and we continue to observe its rituals. We implore Muslims to persist in praying for peace and stability in Malawi,” Kazembe said.

He also denounced the acts of suicide among the youthful population in the district, urging action to address its root causes.

“As Muslims, it is incumbent upon us to investigate why this trend is emerging and to work collectively, alongside other faith leaders, to discourage such behaviours,” he remarked.

Umali Basheel, Chairperson of Dedza Muslim, echoed the sentiments, urging young members of the community to refrain from immoral acts, which contradict the teachings of Islam.

“The Quran, our holy book, explicitly prohibits immoral behavior. I urge Muslim youth to uphold discipline,” Basheel said.

Dedza Mosque, established in 1939, received support from Indian Muslims engaged in businesses in the district.
