The state security Adviser to Kogi State government, Commander Jerry Omodara has charged Muslim brethren to reflect the essence of the Ramadan which he described as a time of spiritual renewal, and a time of sharing with those who are less privileged in the community.
As Muslims across Kogi State and the rest of the world begin this year’s Ramadan, I want to send my best wishes for this special time of spiritual reflection.
It is a time for our Muslim brethren to renew their faith in God and increase their devotion and spirituality. A time when Muslims across the globe will find strength through devotion to fulfil one of the five pillars of Islam.
Ramadan is the holiest month of the Islamic calendar and the strong focus on helping those who are suffering or in need is an example for communities all across the globe, highlighting how we can all come together for a common good.
May I wish all those who are observing Ramadan a month of mercy, forgiveness and freedom.
At the heart of your faith lie the values of peace, responsibility and humanity, these are ideals I and the vast majority of us share with you.
I would also like to send all Muslim communities especially in Kabba-Bunu/Ijumu and the state in general my very best wishes during this time of prayer and reflection, a season that is based on values surrounding charity, family and community and shows how these values can be put into practice.
