Caliph General of Pirang, Sheikh Mukhtarr Gassama on Tuesday donated bags of rice to 385 widows in observance of the birth of Prophet Muhammed (SAW) also known as Maulud Nabi, which was celebrated by Muslims around the world on Wednesday.

At a presentation held at Pirang, the beneficiary widows came from seventeen communities in Kombo East and Kombo Central.

Presenting the items, Caliph General Gassama said he provided the humanitarian gesture to observe the birth of Prophet Muhammad (SAW) and to mitigate the hardship of vulnerable households amid Covid-19 pandemic.

“On the occasion of the birth of the Prophet (SAW), everyone should rejoice and be happy. We direct the gesture to widows to support them and their families,” he said.

The renowned scholar equally appealed to Gambians to remain resolute and committed to supporting people in need and to avoid participating in any activity that can split people. 

“We should all stand and strive to do something that can benefit Gambians at all time.”

The beneficiary widows thanked the Caliph General for the gesture and prayed for his long life and continued health.
