An NDC stalwart and a Muslim Cleric, Hon. Baba Jamal, has reacted to the ongoing saga which claims that former President Mahama has promised to build more mortuaries in Zongos.
The reports which he says are misleading has generated a lot of controversy especially among various sects of the Muslim community
However Mr. Jamal has explained that Muslims do not allow their dead to be kept even for a day before burial.
According to him, Prophet Mohammed in his teachings declared that certain rites such as Sallah, marriage, and burial should be performed immediately without delay.
“Prophet Mohammed said that there are three things that must be addressed immediately when they happened. The first thing which must not be delayed is the time for Sallah, marriage rites, and the third one is when someone dies the person must be buried immediately because he is not part of the living and that is why Muslims don’t keep the dead in morgues, but due to law and technology, it has become necessary that we will keep dead bodies at the morgue for doctors to conduct postmortems”, he narrated.
He spoke on Okay FM’s Ade Akye Abia Morning Show.
