As the Muslim community worldwide begins the month long Ramadan religious obligation even under a COVID-19 pandemic, the Chairman of Senate Committee on Finance, Senator Solomon Adeola (APC, Lagos West) has urged all faithful to pray to Allah for urgent resolution of the global infectious disease and wisdom for all leaders to manage the unpalatable aftermath of the disease, Thecitypulsenews reports.
In a message to the Muslim faithful, Senator Adeola said all adherents of the Islamic faith should use the month long fasting period to reflect on their lives and the true practice of the religion that preaches peace, good neighbourliness, brotherly love and non-violence evangelism.
“We must continually pray for our dear nation to continue on the path of peace and progress. The fasting period presents yet another opportunity for communal supplication to Almighty Allah for solution to the unprecedented global pandemic and for wisdom for all leaders to do the right things in the sight of God and man” he stated.
Senator Adeola said he is hopeful that Nigeria and the world at large will find a durable solution to this unprecedented life and death challenge that afflicts both rich and poor individuals, societies and nations without discrimination stressing that with prayers to Almighty Allah, the sacrifices of fasting by religious groups and adherence to all precautionary measures against COVID-19, better days lies ahead.
