NACOMYO tasks Mus­lims on Ra­madan lessons

Daily Trust - - NEWS -

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)
