Ahmed Idris Birnin Kebbi
The Kebbi All Progressive Congress (APC) Governorship candidate, Dr. Nasir Idris (Kauran Gwandu) has wished Muslims ummah and the people of the State a blessed Ramadan fasting, urging them to use the season to project the best and finest virtues of Islam by personal conduct, and not precept.
In a goodwill message to mark the beginning of the holy month of Ramadan, Nasir Idris said Muslims should use this opportunity to put the best teachings of Islam into practice, such as kindness and the love of humanity.
Nasir who spoke to newsmen on Wednesday in his country home in Birnin Kebbi said the month of Ramadan is an occasion for deep reflection and greater fear of Allah and avoidance of all evils that harm humanity.
“You see this month of Ramadan is characterized by abstention from food and drinks from dawn to dusk, which brings both the rich and poor to share the experience of hunger together, thereby strengthening the bonds between haves and have-nots,” he said
He explained further that as Muslims begin these 30 days of fasting season, they should not forget that Ramadan is not only about abstention from eating and drinking, but it is a reminder to refrain from all kinds of evil and transgressions that harm humanity.
“I am appealing to the market traders to less the prices of the goods, including food at the beginning of every month of Ramadan which will give them more rewards and blessings in this period of Ramadan.
“As we observe this important occasion, let us share food and drinks with the less fortunate because by sharing our blessings with others, Allah will multiply our rewards for good deeds,” he added.
