Alhamdulillah, Mufti Menk has finally arrived in our beloved country-Sierra leone.
The Foundation of Islamic Information Sierra Leone ltd (FOISIL) in collaboration with many Islamic organizations, government agencies and Muslim stakeholders welcomed the grand Mufti of Zimbabwe at the lungi national airport today (September 21, 2017) at 2:30 pm
A convoy of over 120 vehicles were in the streets of Freetown to welcome the grand Mufti as a sign of respect, humility and care for our guest as Muslims.
People left their homes early in the morning some without even taking breakfast and some only realised they were hungry a while after the welcoming ended!. Just to realise how people were eager and anxious to see this grand persinality live in Sierra leone to the extent people were crying just to see him or greet him.
The Mufti was overwhelmed and happy with the very large crowd he saw and the warm welcome he received at the lungi national airport and in the streets of Freetown, he shook hands with lots of Islamic stakeholders at the Airport’s presidential lodge and also waved to many people till he reached his hotel.
According to the programme manager of FOISIL, Mufti Menk was amazed by the number of people he saw to welcome him and said he has only received such similar welcoming at the Kano state in nigeria, that shows how Sierra Leoneans showed up!
The Programme Manager of FOISIL and President of the Sierra Leonans living in dubai- Alhaji Ibrahim Talleh Bah also explained to AYV TV the purpose of Mufti’s visit as part of the divine inspiration tour to preach peace, tolerance and unity in our beloved country.
Mufti Menk together with other Islamic Scholars in Sierra Leone will also be praying for Sierra Leone for the trials and tribulations happening in our country.
The total coordination and contribution from government ministries with his Excellency Ernest Bai Koroma topping the list, Muslim communities, Masjids, Imams, Islamic organizations have really shown how enthusiastic and open we are for unity and development in our country Sierra Leone.
The Sheikh will be doing his first open public lecture in Sierra Leone on the 22nd September 2017, 4:30 pm at the Siaka stevens stadium and also at the commonly known Ghadafi Mosque at Rokupa on the 23rd September at 4:30 pm.
May Allah bless and reward our Sheikh’s visit in Sierra Leone and may Allah make him a means to bring more unity and development in our country Sierra Leone. Ameen.
