MEANING “Man is blessed with great potentialities for good and evil”
Man has freedom to mould himself as he chooses.
Man has been endowed with great natural powers and qualities to make unlimited moral progress as well as rise so high, spiritually.
The outgone Ramadan has demonstrated the truism of Almighty Allah’s words as quoted above.
However, the month of Ramadan is a reminder that there are many in this world nay Oyo State, or shall we say in Nigeria who regularly suffers the pang of hunger and thirst.
This realization suppose to make wealthy ones among us to empathize and sympathise with the less fortunate ones among us.
EID FITRI is a continuation of this message as well as a reminder that the philosophy of the month of Ramadan needs to be adopted throughout the rest eleven months of the year.
The month of Ramadan is also a Refresher or Retraining month for Muslims to always reappraise their faith level.
If Muslims can break FREE FROM Backbiting, Lying, Excessive eating, Gambling, Alcoholism, Adultery and other vices for one month without any bad consequences then it implies that they can BREAKAWAY from the CHAINS and SHACKLES of these FILTHY HABITS for the rest of eleven months.
Muslims should know that they can live their lives without these Odious lifestyle.
Furthermore, Muslims are enjoined to Pray for our leaders starting from President Muhammadu Buhari, the 36 States Governors, the National and State Legislatures and other appointees in Government for divine assistance in the current WAR against COVID-19 that is threatening human existence.
We should remember the FRONTLINE Warriors that is the Medical professionals for Almighty Allah’s divine support.
Finally, we should be careful in our celebrations of Eid ul Fitri, conscious that in this war against COVID-19, PREVENTION IS THE SAFEST AND BEST METHOD OF INFECTION.
Let us observe SOCIAL DISTANCING in all our activities.
Please pray for quick recovery of those under the affliction of COVID-19 and for the repose of those that had lost their lives to COVID-19.
Please pray also for quickest recovery for the economy of Nigeria from the scourge of COVID-19.
