La Dadekotopon Muslim Community Honours Past Heroes

The La Dadekotopon Muslim Community has honoured two illustrious sons of La for their immense contribution towards the development of Islam in the La community.

They were the former Chief Imam of La, late Sheikh Alhaji Imam Ibrahim Adjetey Quaye and the late Alhaji Ibrahim Nii Lamptey Okunka I.

The life and legacy celebration of the two Muslim heroes was aimed at recognizing their contributions towards the advancement and projection of the La Muslim community over the past years.

Speaking at the event, the GaDangme Tijaniya Chief imam of Greater Accra Jallo, Imam Alhaji Ibrahim Tijani Mensah, commended the late Sheikh Alhaji Imam Ibrahim Adjetey Quaye and the late Alhaji Ibrahim Nii Lamptey Okunka I, for their invaluable services in the formation of Islam in La.

“We cannot look back and take stock of how far the Muslim community in La has become without acknowledging the efforts of our former late leaders,” he said.

He paid glowing tribute to the two brave men and others who worked hard to form Islam in La.

 “It is because of their selfless service, determination and dignity that we can do Ramadan and celebrate Eid,” he added.

Imam Alhaji Ibrahim Tijani Mensah who is also the La Dadekotopon Muslim Community Chief Imam outlined some achievements and legacies of the two Islamic scholars to the growth of the Muslim community in La.

He called on the Muslim youth to learn the lessons of hard work, sacrifice, commitment, dedication to duty, honesty and love for their religion, which were exhibited by their former leaders in their heydays.

Those attributes, he stated, were even more relevant today because of the concerns over increasing acts of indiscipline, disrespect, criminality and apathy among the youth.

Imam Alhaji Ibrahim Tijani Mensah promised to protect their legacies and continue supporting the Muslim community and the less privileged in society.
