For the third time in 2023, thousands of Muslims faithful irrespective of status and gender in Hong town, the administrative headquarters of Hong local government area of Adamawa state on Tuesday converged on an open space in Hong and offered special prayers for rain, known as “Salatul Istisqa’a”.

Recall that similar prayers were done on Saturday 22/07/2023 and Sunday 23/07/2023 to seek to seek Allah’s blessings for rainfall and bumper harvest.

The special prayer is to seek God divine intervention due to intermittent rainfall this year in the area which poses threat to bumper harvest.

The prayer was a sequel to a directive by Dan Malikin Adamawa and the District Head of Hong; Alhaji Umar Babangida Mahmoud that Muslims and Christians in his domain should come out and participate in the prayer session.

The prayer session was led by Imam Zubairu Mahmud Fari with District Head of Hong, Dan-Maliki Adamawa, Alhaji Umar Babangida Mahmoud (Khadimul-Qur’an) in attendance.

Imam Zubairu Mahmud Fari prayed Allah SWT to accept the prayer and also bring to an end the hardship faced by people in the country.

He also prayed for bumper harvest and Allah to forgive people of their sins.

Reports indicate that Christians in the area also held special prayer for rainfall and bumper harvest in their various Churches.
