Senate President, Bukola Saraki, has called on Muslims in the country to use the Holy Month of Ramadan to pray to Allah for divine intervention in the insurgency ravaging some parts of the country.
In his Ramadan message to Muslim faithfuls, Saraki urged them to be of good conduct during the Holy Month, adding that holiness was key to maximising the spiritual and physical benefits in Ramadan.
“Ramadan is one of the Pillars of Islam and we should use this period to seek Allah’s face in the fight against insecurity in the nation.”
He urged Islamic scholars and preachers to be guarded in their teachings during the fasting period, adding that they should concentrate on the true teachings of Islam rather than engaging in recrimination.
“Muslim scholars should educate their audience of what is expected of Muslims during and after the holy month of Ramadan to earn Allah’s blessings.
“As we begin this year’s Ramadan, we must be firm in the pursuit of good deeds, we must pray for peace and unity of our dear country,” he said.
