Muslim faithful of the Yaoundé 5 district, in communion with others, began celebrating the feast of Ramadan early this Wednesday 5th June 2019.
Thousands gathered at the esplanade of the Yaounde Omnisport Stadium for the Ramadan prayers.
The great Imam of the Essos mosque, Imam Modibo Halidou Ibrahima led the faithful in prayers.
Imam Modibo called Muslim faithful to uphold the virtues of Islam that encourage peace.
He called on all present to engage only in activities that strengthen national unity and social cohesion.
The Imam told the faithful to continue with the good practices of the month of Ramadan throughout the year.
Addressing the youth, he told them to be law abiding.
As it is the tradition, some underprivileged faithful received gifts at the prayer ground as a sign of charity preached by the Holy Quran.
