Eid-el-Fitri: Egbeyemi urges Muslims to uphold Ramadan lessons

Published

on

The Deputy Governor of Ekiti, Chief Bisi Egbeyemi, has congratulated Muslims in the state on the successful completion of the Ramadan fasting.

 

Egbeyemi also  advised  Muslims in the state to uphold the  lessons learnt during the 30-day fasting and continue to draw closer to Allah in their daily activities.

 

The Deputy Governor said this in a statement issued on Sunday  by his Special Assistant on media, Mr Odunayo Ogunmola.

 

“I congratulate Muslims on the successful completion of the 30 days’ fasting in the holy month of Ramadan, which is an important pillar of the Islamic faith.

“No doubt, they have learnt a lot of lessons during this holy month and I believe they will make good use of these lessons.

“I want to advise them to sustain the momentum of the spiritual rejuvenation and renewal after the Ramadan for the blessings to be permanent in their lives,” he said.

 

He said that for them to have witnessed another Eid-el-Fitri is a special priviledge for Muslims to renew their commitment to the Almighty Allah and his teachings.

 

He described the Eid-el-Fitri as a celebration of Allah’s mercies and devotion to an important pillar of Islam.

 

Egbeyemi said the festival should be celebrated with sober reflection.

 

The Deputy Governor admonished Muslims to allow the lessons of sacrifice, love, humility, tolerance, righteousness, sobriety, discipline, kindness and forgiveness learnt during Ramadan to be part of their daily lives.

 

He, however, cautioned  them against returning  to  the negative and sinful ways of life already jettisoned during Ramadan to sustain the mercies received from Allah during the month.

 

He also felicitated with the state Grand Imam, Sheikh Jamiu Kewulere Bello,  is also the President of the League of Imams and Alfas in the Southwest, Edo and Delta States, and other Muslim leaders for their exemplary leadership during the holy month.

 

Egbeyemi called on Muslims to continue to pray for peace, tranquility, progress, prosperity and development of Ekiti State in particular and Nigeria in general.

 

He  equally called on Muslims to continue to pray for Ekiti and Nigeria to overcome the challenges posed by COVID-19 pandemic.

 

He urged them to continue to live in harmony with adherents of other religions as brothers and sisters under an atmosphere of peace.
