ALHAJI FAROUK ALIU MAHAMA RAMADAN MESSAGE TO ALL MUSLIMS
As the holy month of Ramadan commences, I send fraternal wishes to the Muslim ummah in the Yendi Constituency and Muslims around the world.
The month of Ramadan signifies many benedictions on humanity including the revelation of the Holy Quran which has been instituted for us to dedicate ourselves to the Almighty Allah and to the service of humankind. It is a month of intense devotion and commitment to the principles of love, sacrifice and dedication to duty.
It is my prayer that in this month and beyond, we strive to live by these values, so that, even beyond Ramadan, we continue to commit ourselves to the good of humankind and our fellows. The month of Ramadan is also a time of spiritual reawakening which demands not only abstention from food and drinks, but also all wrongdoing in their lives.
This year’s Ramadan comes at a time where the world weighs heavily under the threat of the Coronavirus pandemic and we must use this period to seek respite and forgiveness from the Almighty Allah.
As men and women of Yendi, we have the rare chance in our lives to realize our potential and to make Yendi a hub of opportunities for her citizens. It is my belief that the principles that Ramadan seeks to inculcate in us are important for realizing this objective if we keep faith with those principles.
Once again, I wish all Muslims the best of the month. May the Almighty Allah bless us all, and make Yendi great and strong.
Farouk Aliu Mahama(Alhaji)
