President Yoweri Museveni is expected to join Muslims on Friday for a special Jumah prayer at Gaddafi Mosque in Old Kampala.

A statement issued on Tuesday by Uganda Muslim Supreme Council (UMSC) spokesperson, Haji Nsereko Mutumba, said all Ugandans who want a united and peaceful country are invited to attend irrespective of religion.

The unity prayer is organised by UMSC in conjunction with Uganda Tabliq Community, Jamuiyat Daawa Salafiyya and the SPIDQA Foundation.

"This particular unity Juma is aimed at consolidating the existing Muslim unity in Uganda which was realised on January 20, 2015 when the Mufti of Uganda Shaban Mubaje met the Amiir Ummah sheikh Yunus Kamoga and Amiir Daula sheikh Sulaiman Kakeeto. And they resolved to bury their past misunderstandings in respect of Allah's commandment in the Holy Quran," said the statement.

The Council quoted the Koran 3:103 as saying: "And hold firmly to the rope of God, all of you, and do not be divided. And remember the favour of Allah upon you - when you were enemies and He brought your hearts together and you became, by His favour, brothers…."
During the same unity prayer, there will be a special prayer of thanking Allah for the successes He has bestowed upon Ugandan Muslims in the past 15 years of the current UMSC administration.

"Muslims will also pray for peace before, during and after the presidential and general elections," said UMSC.
