A frontline Socio-political group in the State of Osun, All Progressive Congress Canvassers Movement (APCCM), under the leadership of Hon. Yusuf Idowu Abass, has congratulated Muslims all over the world particularly Islamic adherents in the State of Osun over celebration of Eid-el-fitr which marks the end of this year’s Ramadan.
In a congratulatory message to Muslim faithful, Yusuf expressed gratitude to Allah for making this year’s Ramadan a worthwhile spiritual exercise despite the restrictions posed by the outbreak of coronavirus pandemic which prevented the conventional activities of the holy month such as congregational prayers, attending tafsir, sharing of Iftar with family, friends and the needy including receptive seclusion of the last ten days of the blessed month.
“Yet, all those limitations do not invalidate our fasting and all our supplications in the holy month rather it further reinforces our belief in Allah and His noble messenger Prophet Muhammad(S.A.W)”
“We must, however, call on Him to help cleanse the earth and at the same time we must be dutiful enough by obeying all regulations of the authority especially during a time of scepticism like this”
“It is important to note that all those regulations, guidance and safety tips are for our own good and that of the society at large”
“There is no disputing the fact that the world shall be healed and rise again”
“I urge us all to celebrate with moderation and extend hands of fellowship to our neighbours”
“I pray that we shall witness many Ramadan on earth and wish all Muslims brethren a pleasant and memorable Ramadan”, the statement concluded.
