Islamic Funeral rites for Hajia Mariama Bawumia, mother of Vice President, Dr Mahamudu Bawumia, continued in Walewale on Thursday, with the important third-day adu'a.

Hajia Mariama Bawumia passed away in Accra on Monday, and she was laid to rest in Walewale on Tuesday, with a host of dignitaries in attendance.

The third-day dua'a (funeral prayers) is significant in Islamic tradition for the dead, and like Tuesday's burial ceremony, a host of dignitaries from across the country and beyond, attended the ceremony in Walewale today.

Islamic religious leaders, including the sixteen Regional Imams, the clergy, senior government officials, members of parliament and Ghanaians from all walks of life travelled to Walewale for the ceremony.

With Vice President Bawumia, his wife Samira, his brothers and family members sitting in state, the ceremony began with recitations of the entire chapters of the Holy Qur'an to seek the mercy and favours of Allah towards the departed Hajia Mariam.

Another round of recitation was done for the members of the family and all sympathisers who have been mourning with the family.

The final funeral rite has been scheduled for October 24, 2021.
