Islamic scholar charge faithfuls on national harmony during Ramadan
An Islamic scholar Alfa Musa Aminu has enjoined all Muslims in Nigeria to use the coming month of Ramadan to create harmony with other citizens in the country.
In a message, Aminu said Islam is a religion of peace that upholds the values of tolerance and mutual coexistence without a place for hatred and violence.
He, therefore, urged Muslims to use the period to build a relationship of friendship and harmony with fellow citizens.
The Islamic scholar prayed to Allah for the continued peace, progress, and the wellbeing of the country while embracing and practising the teachings of the Holy Prophet Mohammed.
According to him, Ramadan is a period of reconnecting back to Allah, as he says Islam teaches peace and peaceful coexistence amongst one another.
He, therefore, urge all Muslim brothers and sisters, as Ramadan draws near, to seize the opportunity to strengthen our relationship with Allah.
”Ramadan’ is a period of Repentance, Forgiveness and as such we must make out time to strengthen our relationship with Allah, by asking for his forgiveness and mercy,” he said.
He admonished all Muslims and Nigerians, in general, to be united “because lack of unity amongst one another in the country continues to cause a setback to the socio-economic prosperity of the nation.”
The Islamic scholar felicitated with All Progressives Congress (APC) national leader Bola Tinubu, Lagos State governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu, deputy governor Obafemi Hamzat and House of Rep speaker Femi Gbajabiamila on the coming Ramadan.
