Muslims in Uganda are now united and the unity should be reflected in Muslim schools
The Mufti Sheikh Shaban Mubajje has officially opened the Quran recitation competition finals that are going on at the UMSC headquarters in Old Kampala.
The competitions are organised by Radio Bilal 94.1 FM every year during the holy month of Ramadhan.
In his remarks, the Mufti commended Radio Bilal management for maintaining the tradition of organizing annual Quran recitation competitions and pledged his total support for the initiative.
He also thanked teachers and Sheikhs for teaching the Quran to children and urged them to offer the child an education or Ilim that unites them rather than incite or divide them.
He said Muslims in Uganda are now united and the unity should be reflected in Muslim schools.
“We are united and we are working together for Islam. That is why Amiir Daula Sheikh Sulaiman Kakeeto is here” the Mufti said.
A total of 17 schools from different parts of Uganda have been taking part in this year’s Radio Bilal Quran competitions which comes to the climax today.
Radio Bilal station manager Musa Mugerwa and one of the radio directors Haji Rajab Bukenya were present.
They gave Mufti a certificate in appreciation and recognition of his unreserved support to Radio Bilal.
On receiving the certificate, the Mufti said he will not rest until Radio Bilal covers the entire Uganda.
“We have already secured the necessary equipment and it will be installed in the near future” the Mufti informed hundreds of Muslims gathered to witness the Quran competition finals.
The UMSC Secretary General Ramadhan Mugalu also addressed the congregation.
