Muslims in Kagadi have also joined the rest of the Muslims worldwide to mark the day of slaughtering animals known as Eid Adha.
The preaching was led by the District Khadh Kibaale Muslim district Sheikh Muhammad Isingoma at Kagadi Town Mosque in Kagadi Town Council.
Sheikh Muhammad Isingoma, the Kibaale Muslim district Khadh says Prophet Ibrahim’s sacrifice symbolizes peace, love and sharing amongst people of Allah.
Sheikh Muhammad said cooperation and tolerance are key in promoting peace and tranquility that also lead to development of the households and the country at large.
Sheikh Isingoma applauded the government of the NRM and president Museveni for the prevailing peace across all borders that have enabled them to work in a better and peaceful environment.
He asked the government to support them as they build a storied Kagadi Town Mosque.
Aisha Tumwebaze, Woman Member of the General Assembly Bunyoro Tooro region representing Bunyoro and Tooro women at the Uganda Muslim Supreme Council says Eid Al Adha reminds them of the humility of their grandfather prophet Ibrahim towards Islam.
Tumwebaze tasked Muslim women to actively participate in developmental activities to enhance their household incomes.
Muslims who spoke to us say this day is for sharing as Islam tasks them and that this promotes oneness and peaceful co-existence.
They requested the government to speed up the Islamic banking program so that Muslims can also start developing themselves.
Kagadi also directed Eid Adha prayers to the people of Kasese who lost their children in a deadly attack alleged to have been staged by the Allied Democratic Forces this month.
They said Islam doesn’t condone killing any soul.
