Oyo MMPN has urged Muslim to pray for peace in the month of Ramadan.

9Janewshub.com.ng reports that Muslims have been enjoined to dedicate the month of Ramadan to prayers to Allah to enable the country to surmount the security challenges facing the people.

This is contained in a  statement in Ibadan by Chairman, Muslim Media Practitioners of Nigeria, MMPN, Oyo State Chapter, Alhaji Ridwan Fasasi on the commencement of this year’s Ramadan fasting.

He noted that  since Ramadan is a month full of blessings, Muslims should use the opportunity to pray fervently to seek Allah’s forgiveness to end the security challenges which have enveloped the country characterized by insurgency, kidnapping, armed bandits and of recent, terrorist acts of train attacks.

Alhaji Fasasi noted that since the compulsory twenty-nine or thirty days fasting is hinged on God’s consciousness, Muslims should endeavour to ensure that their actions and inactions follow the dictates of Allah.

He reminded the believers that activities like feeding the poor,  recitation of Quran, attending Islamic lectures, being among the righteous ones and avoidance of wrong acts are some of the catalysts that speed up the acceptance of one’s fasting by Allah.

Alhaji  Fasasi urged the Islamic faithful especially the wealthy ones to remember the less privileged and others that the current economic challenges have  affected  bearing it in mind that Ramadan is a month of helping the needy.

He admonished Muslim philanthropists to take sponsorship of Islamic lectures as a top priority so that Muslims will be able to benefit from such through traditional channels of radio and Television as well as new media platforms.

Alhaji Fasasi enjoined Islamic clerics who will be handling different lectures and explanation of the holy Quran during the month to lay emphasis on issues of patriotism, peaceful co-existence, and love for one another.

He added that though there is no restriction by government, the traditional activities during Ramadan like Tarawih, Tafsir, group iftar and annual lecture  should be observed moderately as  COVID-19 is still within .
