Kwara monarch tasks Muslims on virtues of Ramadan

By Toyin Durosinlohun, Ilorin 

The Olofa of Offa in Offa Local Government Area of Kwara State has urged Muslims to uphold the virtues of peace, love and unity in the interest of an enduring communal progress and development of the country. In his message to Muslim Ulamah at this year’s Eid-el-fitri celebration, the monarch added that “this period is not just for merry making alone but an appropriate time for us to be devoted to Almighty Allah in our supplications. 

“It is also a period to examine our doings and continue to be steadfast in our relationship with our fellow human beings in line with the injunction of the glorious Holy Quran and the exemplary leadership of Prophet Muhammed. 

“It is also an opportunity to once again, learn from the spirit of humility and forgiveness which our Prophet Mohammed (PBUH) is preaching to us. As a person, group, society and nations of the world, we need to learn how to take care of the destitute and the less privileged amongst us. We should know that in the spirit of brotherliness, it is our religious duty to give a helping hand to those who are less fortunate materially, financially and spiritually. 

“Therefore, I call on all and sundry not to jettison all the good works done during the Ramadan. Let it be our foundation upon which all our actions will rest for the next eleven months when the opportunity will once again present itself. 

“I urge all Muslims to continue to preach peace, unity and tolerance among themselves and people of other religions, so that together we can move forward as a people under the Almighty Allah.”
