SALLAH MESSAGE ON THE OCCASION OF EIDL KABEER CELEBRATIONS BY MUSLIMS.
I wish to heartily felicitate with Muslims all over the world, Nigeria, those in Kogi State & specifically the entire Igala people on the occasion of this Eid.
Today, as the world commemorates Prophet Ibrahim’s life of sacrifice, patient & obedience to Almighty Allah this Eid’l
Kabeer, I advise everyone to always exemplify the character of Prophet Ibrahim in total submission to the Wills of Allah at all times. And ofcourse, it is the significance of this Eid.
Today, the world is faced with Corona Virus pandemic which has halted almost every activities of man around the globe and even affected this years pilgrimage to the Holy Land. It is believed that the omnipresent God will hear our prayers from every home.
People should strongly heed the pieces of advice given by medical practitioners regarding Covid-19 pandemic via constant hand washing and social distancing.
I pray that Allah ease our predicaments from this global pandemic. Let us be patient, obedient and above all, sacrifice as Allah is aware of our challenges.
At this point, we must remember the real essence of the Eid which is the willingness, steadfastness, sacrifice, obedience and devotion to Allah as exemplified by Prophet Ibrahim (AS).
As we celebrate today, let us remember that we must love our neighbours as ourselves and know that our real values are not reflected in what we have but how much we have touched the lives of those around us, especially those put under our care and who are in dare need of our support/assistance.
On this day, I pray that Almighty Allah accept all your sacrifices.
