NACOMYO tasks Muslims on Ramadan lessons
The National Council of Muslim Youth Organisation (NACOMYO) has advised Muslims to continue to reflect on the lessons of Ramadan.
This contained in a statement signed by Alhaji Moshood Akintola in Ibadan.
Akintola urged Muslims to shun evil acts and to remain steadfast in upholding the commandments of their creator, Allah.
“We call on those, who are against modest dressing for Muslim girls through the use of hijab on top of school uniforms to let the Muslims enjoy the practices of their beliefs.
“However, the verdict of the Osun State High Court should be respected while aggrieved parties have the option of appeal and not taking laws into their hands,’’ it said.
Similarly, an Islamic cleric, Alhaji Rilwan Hussein, has enjoined Muslims in Nigeria to live by the lessons of Ramadan and be committed to nationbuilding. Hussein told newsmen in Osogbo yesterday that the holy month of Ramadan should be a time for sober reflection for good Muslims.
He said with the present socio-economic challenges facing the country, Muslims must display commitment to the development of the country.
The Permanent Secretary, Osun State Universal Basic Education Board, Alhaji Fatai Kolawole, also said the only way adherents of the faith could distinguish themselves and live by the teachings of Ramadan, was by being committed to their nation and to the truth.
He reiterated the resolve of the present administration in Osun to make teachers’ welfare a priority.
Meanwhile, the Imam of Oroki Central Mosque, Sheik Mustapha Tijani, has called on Muslims all over the world to exhibit the philosophy of Islam and make peace a priority. (NAN)
