This act of “Iftarr” (fast break) could also be related to “zakat” (almsgiving), a requisite for every true Muslim during the Month of Ramadan. Madam Fatima Maada Bio and the JMB women have however inspired the nation to embrace the act of giving to all, irrespective of political affiliation or any other personal attachment.
Her Excellency, Fatima Maada Bio further said that she was overwhelmed by the great turnout, and expressed gratitude to all the worshipers who attended the event, adding that she was very happy to see every person satisfied with the sumptuous meal that the JMBWW served on such a spectacular day.
Madam Fatima Bio highlighted in clear terms that rendering alms during Ramadan demonstrates her affection for the people and added that she would obviously do the same thing for her Christian brothers and sisters during Christmas and other Christian celebrations.
The First Lady concluded that Sierra Leone is a beautiful country with unquestionable religious tolerance, which other countries admire and that the new Direction Government is committed to sustaining peace and national cohesion in the country.
