Member representing Ikeja federal constituency, and chairman House Committee on finance, Hon James Faleke has called on Muslim not to only dine and wine on the day of sallah but to use the precious day as an opportunity to engage in the spiritual teaching of Allah and for individual to embrace good deeds.
In a statement made available to Open reporter, Faleke said that the roles prayer play in the life of human being and in the nation at large cannot be overlooked, stressing that Muslim faithfuls should use this period of ramadan to pray to Allah against the pandemic coronarus.
“I celebrate with all Muslim Faithfuls within Ikeja Federal Constituency and environs.
Fasting in the month of Ramadan is not only to do without eating food and drinking water but to teach the true followers of Prophet Mohammed, (SAW) to embrace good deeds as commanded by the Holy Quran.
“Ramadan is an essential period to engage in spiritual reflection as a way to devote oneself to the true worship and teaching of Allah. Prayer can’t be over emphasised, hence, i urge all Muslims to pray at home and pray for our dear Country over the Pandemic of Covid-19 as its really affecting the economy and lives of the people negatively.
