A boy of nine years and others saw their Quranic studies run of periods come to an end, with chiefs, Imams, Mallams and the general muslims community customarily climax their completetion with “walima” graduation in Tarkwa New Atuabo, western region.
Nine years Tawfic Abdul Aziz, has cement his status to become the youngest among others in New Atuabo walima graduation history to complete Quran, breaking a half-century old record.
A successful taught from dogged part-time ustaz Muugu and a devotional effort from cameo Imam of New Atuabo, Alhaji Dauda Suleman, handed the eight graduant certificates of completion at a relieved Anglican park.
Abdul Qudus Fuseni, Mariam Abdulai, Lamin Moro, Sophia Abdul Aziz, Mariam Dauda, Habiba Suleman, Ibrahim Salifu and Tawfi Abdul Aziz of nine, all combined had the solo graduation.
This walima graduation marks the New Atuabo faithfuls third successive ceremony ever since they parted ways from their colonial masters Zongo, a suburb of Tarkwa as Quranic caretakers. Previously, New Atuabo were under Zongo in Quranic studies until assertive Imam Alhaji Dauda Suleman bolt the decision to form his own in Atuabo principality, and it looked like a familiar story.
To make the anticipated fairy tale got off to the anticipated start, assertive Dauda travelled to Zongo with hopes of getting ustaz to handle his abandoned people in New Atuabo, making life increasingly more comfortable after the interval.
Doing so was unlikely to be easy, however, with the New Atuabo Imam wary of letting go of such a highly-rated effort in vain, as such, Dauda seemingly dip in pole position to land his desire for Atuabo community.
It was a welcome sight for the New Atuabo faithfuls after ustaz Muugu committed to a style of teaching akin to Atuabo’s template and insist will not divert from their opted path of God’s work.
Painstaking leader of Ahallisuna, Tanko Abdellah told source “because Zongo Quranic studies is weekends based, New Atuabo brings their children every Saturday and Sunday, and waits until the next weekends. But for Zongo, apart from the weekends studies with Atuabo, get another chance after each slated prayers to learn the Qur’an as a home center. So in the week before Atuabo goes to learn, Zongo has already benefited all while”.
“This quickly prompted Atuabo Imam Dauda to lobby for Ustaz at Zongo to form Quranic studies class at his town”, and the multitude yelled “Allahu Akbar Allahu Akbar”.
