Governor, State of Osun, Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola has urged muslims to approach the Ramadan season with best practices and remember the sick, poor in prayers and charity.
In a goodwill message to Muslims for the 2018 Hijrah 1439AH Ramadan released to newsmen by his Media Adviser, Mr Sola Fasure, Governor Aregbesola said Muslims should be more devout and committed to having the spiritual awakening that comes with the Holy month.
I am most pleased to see the beginning of this year’s Ramadan. Ramadan is that period when Muslims worldwide engage in fasting – a physical and spiritual act of self denial, cleansing, prayer, fellowship and charity.
As one of the pillars of Islam, Ramadan is also a time of deep consecration to spiritual matters. It is therefore a time of spiritual awakening and commitment to the tenets of Islam.
I urge Muslims therefore to approach the season with best practices as we share love with fellow Muslims and our neighbours. Let us be sober and do all things with moderation. Let us remember the poor, the sick, the beleaguered and those in one difficulty or another in our prayers and work of charity.
As we celebrate this great festival of the religion of peace, may the peace and comfort of Allah SWT rest upon us, our family, community, state and nation.
This is wishing all Muslims Ramadan Kareem, with love and grace on behalf of the government and the good people of Osun.
