The Kumbala clan, also known as the “Limanpe” gates from across Gonjaland on Monday, 1st May, 2023 paid a courtesy call on the king and overlord of the Gonja Kingdom, Yagbonwura Bii-Kunuto Jewu Soale (I) at his residence in Damongo.
The team was made up of members of the clan from Larabanga, Sawla, Daboya, Bole, Mandari, Gbona among others who are popularly known by the appellation “Gbane” in the Gonja Kingdom.
The Islamic clerics from the Kumbala clans were led to the King’s Palace by the Savannah Regional Chief Imam, Alhaji Amadu Mushie where some Quranic recitals were said to offer prayers for the King and for the Peace of the entire Gonja Kingdom.
According to Mallam Yahuza Haruna who is a member of the clan, Praying together as a clan or community can help in the strengthening of bonds and foster a sense of unity and promote peace and harmony.
He added that in Islam, prayer is an essential part of one’s daily life and a means of seeking guidance, forgiveness and blessings from Allah, adding that When Muslims come together in congregation, it does not only enhances the spiritual experience but also fosters a sense of community and brotherhood.
He also indicated that, Praying for the king is a noble act as it signifies the recognition of the importance of leadership and governance in society and shows their willingness to support the new king to work towards the betterment of the kingdom under his leadership.
He further explained that, praying for the peace of the kingdom is a reflection of the Kumbala clan’s desire for stability, security, and prosperity for the people of the Gonja Kingdom and also highlights the importance of living in peace and harmony with one another, regardless of differences in ethnicity, religion or culture.
