Ramadan: Help the needy, embrace self-control, Adeleke urges Muslims


OSOGBO- Gov. Ademola Adeleke of Osun has urged Muslim faithful to use the Ramadan period to offer help the needy and emulate the sacrificial living, self control and intercessory supplications embedded in the teachings of the holy month.

Adeleke stated this in his Ramadan message issued on Thursday in Osogbo.

He urged Muslim faithful to see Ramadan as a period of self-reflection aimed at deepening one’s spiritual growth and renew a sense of appreciation for the many blessings of God.

“In the spirit of thanksgiving and reflection, all of us observing Ramadan can strengthen our sense of commitment to equality and development of our communities.

“It is a time to offer help to those in need, while it serves as an immutable emblem of holy life.

“As residents of Osun State, we are all blessed to live under a government that fosters religious liberty and respects the religious practice of all.

“Our laws and history ensure that Muslims can observe this period in accordance with the dictates of their conscience and without detractions.

“It is also a period our dear state looks up to Muslims for unimpeded prayers, with a renewed sense of unity, purpose and desire for a better society.

“As we all unite to celebrate this year’s Ramadan in teachings and reflections, I join in the hope for a blessed month,” the governor said. (NAN)
