The Speaker added: “Fasting in the Koran are two intercessors from the servants of Allah on the day of resurrection the first will say: ‘Oh Lord, I prevented him from his food and desires during the day. Let me intercede for him.’ ”

Among added that the expression she shared highlights the importance of fasting and the Muslim brethren should take advantage of the season to multiply their praises and worship the Almighty Allah.

The guest speaker, Dr Abdul Hafiz Walusimbi, a renowned Muslim scholar, requested the 11th Parliament to make provision for the Khadi courts where they would as Muslims, be able to discipline their own.

“The Constitution of Uganda allows us to have freedom of worship but they did not make provision for the Khadi courts.  We all know the backlog in the courts of law. Working on having the Khadi courts will help reduce on these many cases in the courts,” he said.
