Daily Trust - - NEWS - From Maryam Ah­madu-Suka, Kaduna

The Jama’atu Nas­ril Is­lam ( JNI) has fe­lic­i­tated with Mus­lims on Eid-el-Fitr, call­ing on them to sus­tain the teach­ing of the holy month of Ra­madan.

The JNI, in a state­ment signed by the Sec­re­tary­Gen­eral, Dr. Khalid Abubakar Aliyu, stressed that the in­her­ent lessons em­bed­ded in fast­ing such as faith, sin­cer­ity, sac­ri­fice, hu­mil­ity, com­pas­sion, giv­ing, piety and com­mit­ment be sus­tained for the good of mankind.

The JNI stated, “By Al­lah’s grace, Tues­day, 5th July, 2016 or Wed­nes­day, 6th July, 2016 shall mark the end of Ra­madan fast­ing and to cel­e­brate Eidel-Fitr, in the light of which we use this medium to once again thank Al­lah, the Most High, for spar­ing our lives to have ob­served the Ra­madan fast­ing.

“Nonethe­less, this shows that time is tran­sient and that ev­ery­thing is tem­po­rary. Not­ing our ac­tions and in­ac­tions, we shall all be held ac­count­able. Nige­rian Mus­lims are there­fore called upon to cast back their minds to the good virtues of the month of Ra­madan and keep to its teach­ings all through, as the Lord of Ra­madan, is and shall re­main for­ever and ever the Lord of other months.”

The JNI added, “We re­it­er­ate that the Mus­lim faith­ful should in­ten­sify prayers for the Ummah against all man­ner of mis­for­tunes, re­lief and suc­cour to the economic chal­lenges be­dev­illing the na­tion. JNI wishes all Mus­lim faith­ful an ac­cepted Ra­madan Fast and suc­cess­ful Eid-elFitr.”
