The Executive Chairman of Yagba East Loal Government Area Kogi State Hon Asiru Abdulrazaq Ijagbemi charged muslim faithfuls to let righteous acts,efforts of Ramadan guide their actions
Hon Asiru Abdulrazaq Ijagbemi gave the charge while felicitating with the muslim faithfuls at Isanlu the H.Q of Yagba East Local Govt Area of Kogi State.The statement reads:
I join muslims in Nigeria and across the world in marking the faithful completion of this year’s Ramadan fast, one of the most critical pillars of Islam.We have fasted and prayed in special ways during this holy month.
Our act of sacrificing by abstaining from food,drinks and other wordly things from dawn to dusk is not simply a ritual to be performed so that we may seem religious or pious to others.We do so as a sign of complete devotion to and love for Allah and in total appreciation of his mercy upon us.
In that,an essential lesson Ramadan teaches us is love and compassion.The observance of this holy month is to bring compassion and love to people around us.
We must dedicate ourselves to performing the compassionate things that lie within the power of each of us to do in order to give peace and improve the lives of the people around us.This is the true message of Ramadan and of Islam itself.As we commemorate the end of the holy month, may Allah [SWT] grant us his full blessings, may long life and happiness be upon you all.May He accept our prayers and all Ramadan efforts as an act of Ibadah. AMIN.
