‘Help fight moral decadence’
The acting Ameer, who made the call at the opening of the 34th annual National Convention of the Lajna Imailah in Kumasi, also lamented the fact that successive governments and the state seemed to be interested in fighting only the drug trade, neglecting the issue of alcoholism, although it was the main driving force for youth immorality and delinquency.
The theme for the three-day convention: ‘Striving to attain the fear of Allah, an unending pre-occupation of the Muslim woman’ attracted over 2,000 Ahmadi Muslim women and young girls (Nasirat).
Alhaji Bin Salih blamed the moral decadence in the Ghanaian society on materialism and neglect of religious principles, by especially women, saying that to achieve wealth and material things, some women had willingly accepted to be objects of pleasure for men, with others taking to indecent exposure of their vital parts.
The acting Ameer charged Muslim women to set themselves apart from all such ungodly practices, condemn these tendencies while setting themselves as examples for others, especially younger generation, to emulate not only for now but for the future well-being of the society as well.
The Ashanti Regional Director of Women, Ms Augustina Gyamfi, asked women to put the fear of God in their children to enable them to grow to become hardworking, honest and responsible adults in future.
She said the Ministry of Gender, Children and Social Protection was offering scholarships to deprived children to pursue technical and vocational courses to help better their future.
The National President of the Lajna Imailah, Madam Hafsa Obosu, asked Ahmadi Muslim women to be examples both at home and in the larger society by staying away from negative practices such as gossiping, backbiting, insults and disrespect for their husbands, which were displeasing to Allah.
