Governor Abdullahi Sule of Nasarawa State has congratulated the Muslim community in the state for joining their counterparts all over the world in celebrating this festival of sacrifice.
As we are all aware, the feast of Eid-el-Kabir is a test of faith in commemoration of the sublime submission by Prophet Ibrahim (May peace be upon him) to the call for sacrifice”. He declared.
He said the celebration, symbolizes a call to all Muslims to live life of selflessness, brotherhood, sacrifice and adherence to Allah’s commands.
He reminded Muslims on the need to use the occasion reflect on their relationship with God and fellow humans as a yardstick for righteous living, love and peaceful co-existence in the society.
“It is in view of this that I beseech you to continue to preach peace, show love, understanding, tolerance and good neighbourliness among ourselves and humanity at large”.
He further urged Muslims to pray for their Brothers and Sisters, who are resident in Saudi Arabia and have the opportunity of performing this year’s Holy Pilgrimage.
