Ramadan: Ogundoyin Charges Muslims on Devotional Acts
As Islamic faithful across the globe commence Ramadan, the Speaker, Oyo State House of Assembly, OYHA, Mr Adebo Ogundoyin has congratulated Muslims on the beginning of the month of blessing and mercy.
The Speaker in his Ramadan message said Allah has provided yet another opportunity for the whole world to raise their voices in prayer to him in this sacred month of fasting especially on the deadly Coronavirus which has killed thousands of people across the globe.
Mr Ogundoyin said there was no doubting the fact that the first and most important prayer request of humanity to God at this critical moment is for Covid-19 to end or for it to get a cure hence Muslims must avail themselves of the divine opportunity by praying fervently.
He urged Islamic faithful not to be discouraged by the ban on all congregational activities including prayers at the mosques and Ramadan lectures in public, but observe their prayers regularly at home and also engage in devotional and meritorious activities like feeding the poor Muslims, reciting the Glorious Quran, giving out gifts among others to earn maximum rewards in the Holy month.
According to the Oyo State Speaker, the measures are aimed at controlling and containing the spread of the pandemic.
