In a message to the Muslim community, the Imam of the Bambui Central mosque, Awalu Mohammadu, warned them in the words of Prophet Mohammed that " The world is a prison for the believers and is a paradise for the unbelievers."

The period of Ramadan is characterised by the acts of giving known as the zakat. The Muslim community was reminded by the Imam that "Ramadan without giving out charity to the poor his or her fasting is hanging between the heavens and the earth until charity is given before the fasting is accepted by Allah."
