A popular Facebook Africa page known as New Africa has dropped an image foreboding a rare occurrence that took place in Ghana. In the image, Some Muslim brothers spread their mat as they observe their routine prayers outside church premises known as Christ Apostolic Church. As reported by New Africa this is not the first time the church permits this sect of Muslims to make use of the church premises for their Jum'ah Friday prayers. This incident took place in a suburb of Accra called Nima in Ghana.
OxygenNews picked a few of the relevant comments that affirmed the credibility of the post.
According to @Ibrahim Yakubu who said, As a Ghanaian, I can attest that this is true. Muslims and Christians attend weddings, funerals, and other social events together. They live in the same houses (when renting) and tease each other when one is seen to be non committed to their religious affiliation.....
Another man also narrated how churches donate to the muslim body in Ghana and how a Roman Catholic built a Jumma'a center for them.
Some Nigerians reacted to the post by expressing their doubts about the possibility of this happening in their own country. Describing how Religion is being practiced in their country, saying it is a different ball game from other nations.
Check out the relevant comments made by Nigerians below;
The main question being asked by several Nigerians is Can we ever see this peaceful religious coexistence among ourselves in Nigeria?
Considering how the Hijab controversy nearly stirred a conflict in one of the Nigerian regions early this year.
I believe there are a lot of places in the country where Christians and Muslims live with each other without any problem. However, For us to see more depth of peace in our neighborhood, we need to express love with each other irrespective and regardless of the religious differences.
