S/West Mus­lims fe­lic­i­tate with Nige­ri­ans

Daily Trust - - NEWS - By Ab­bas Ji­moh

The Mus­lim Ummah of the South West Nige­ria (MUSWEN) and the Mus­lim Me­dia Prac­ti­tion­ers of Nige­ria (MMPN) have con­grat­u­lated Mus­lims in the South West re­gion in par­tic­u­lar and the en­tire coun­try in gen­eral on the Eid-el-fitr cel­e­bra­tion.

In sep­a­rate state­ments yes­ter­day, MUSWEN spokesman, Al­haji Femi Ab­bas and MMPN Abuja chap­ter chair­man, Al­haji Ab­durRah­man Ba­lo­gun, Mus­lims were urged to sus­tain the piety ex­hib­ited while ob­serv­ing the Ra­madan fast.

“While cel­e­brat­ing the fes­tiv­i­ties of Eidul-Fitr, we should re­mem­ber the so­cial and spir­i­tual gains of the sa­cred month and ful­fill our covenant with Al­lah in such a way that those gains will not be taken away from us by Satan. We should re­mem­ber to pay our manda­tory Zakatul-Fitr and be kind to the less priv­i­leged ones in our cel­e­bra­tions. Such cel­e­bra­tions should ex­em­plify the remorse and hu­mil­ity we im­bibed in the sa­cred month of Ra­madan.

Ba­lo­gun on his part urged Nige­ri­ans to in­crease their ef­forts at col­lec­tively re­solv­ing the chal­lenges fac­ing the coun­try and en­sure its rapid de­vel­op­ment in the in­ter­est of the cit­i­zens.
