As Muslims in Nigeria join their counterparts across the globe celebrate this year’s Eid-el-Fitri, the Founder, Spiritual Head and Grand Imam of Shafaudeen In Islam Worldwide, Professor Sabit Olagoke has charged the Islamic faithful not to go back to all the habits they forsook during the 29-day Ramadan fast.
In his Eid-el-Fitri message, Professor Olagoke said the gains and blessings of Ramadan are not limited to the observance period alone, but extends to the period after the injunction and to access the blessings.
He said Muslims are expected to keep to the tenets of the Holy Quran as regards the Ramadan fast and enjoined all to avoid hate speech even under hostile environment of provocation.
According to him, it is one of the imports of the practical message of Ramadan.
Asking for moderate celebration of the Eid-el-Fitri, the cleric enjoined all to be cautious and celebrate within the ambit of civility and consideration for others, noting that “we must tolerate ourselves through upholding the principle of SWOT Analysis with basic support of the SMART concept to maximally achieve on current drive of governance transition and dispensation for a better future of bequeath-able legacy of Sustainable Development”.
Professor Olagoke used the occasion to pray for the country’s leadership at all levels and the people of Nigeria in general, “I pray that the peace of God that exceeds human understanding be bestowed upon our country, as a result of our sacrifices during the Lent and Ramadan fast”.
