As Muslims across the world begin the 30–day fasting following the sighting of the moon last week , former Kwara state governor, Alhaji Abdulfatah Ahmed has urged them to pray for peace, harmony and prosperity
Alhaji Ahmed , who congratulated Muslims for witnessing this year’s holy month of Ramadan submitted that fasting in the holy month is a cardinal pillar of Islam.
‘It is a time for renewed purification, forgiveness and kindness towards others’ he said.
The former governor urged Muslims, residents and citizens of Kwara in particular, to move beyond the abstinence required by Ramadan and demonstrate gratitude to Allah by showing concern and extending kindness to the less privileged cognizant that this period was challenging for everyone last year.
Alhaji Ahmed , who is the Seriki Adini of Share land , also asked Muslims to pray for Nigeria to overcome her current challenges so that the country and its people can prosper in a safe and peaceful environment.
