Imbibe self-discipline, empathy, Muslims preach at Ramadan
The Commissioner for Tourism, Arts and Culture, Lagos State, Mrs. Uzamat Akinbile-Yussuf, has enjoined Muslims to abide by the tenets of Islam with regards to Ramadan by imbibing personal discipline and empathy for the indigent as habits.
She gave the admonition in a statement issued by her media office yesterday, noting that only adherence to these virtues during the fasting period is what is required of a true Muslim by Allah.
“This Holy month of Ramadan teaches us to practice self-discipline, self-control, sacrifice, and empathy for those who are less fortunate, thus encouraging actions of generosity and compulsory charity.
“However, these things should not be practiced only during Ramadan, rather, we should inculcate them as habits for our own good and for the sake of humanity. May Almighty Allah accepts our duas and efforts as an act of Ibadah,” she added.
