Hundreds of Shia Muslims and Urmahs in the Tamale metropolis over the weekend held the annual Maulid festival, to commemorate the birth of FATIMAH ZAHRA, the daughter of prophet Mohammed (SWS).
The event was also used to pray for Allah’s blessings for the year. The Spiritual Leader and head of the Shia Muslim community in the northern region, Sheikh Abul-Mumeen Dalhu, addressing the Muslim Urmah, urged Muslim leaders to avoid shameful acts in the discharge of their religious duties.

Allah, praise Allah for His mercies and protection and also praise FATIMAH
ZAHRA, the daughter of Prophet Muhammad.
