Ramadan: Buhari Sends Best Wishes To Muslims
The president, Mohammadu Buhari has sent his best wishes to best wishes to Muslims as they commence 30 days of Ramadan fasting.
In his goodwill message, Buhari urged Muslims to use the 30-day season to demonstrate the best virtues of Islam through personal conduct.
He implored Muslims should put into practice the best teachings of Islam, such as kindness and the love of humanity.
The goodwill message was issued by his spokesman, Malam Garba Shehu, on Wednesday in Abuja.
Buhari said: “Let us use this opportunity to put the best teachings of Islam into practice, such as kindness and the love of humanity.
“This is an occasion for deep reflection and greater fear of Allah and avoidance of all evils that harm humanity.”
According to Buhari, Ramadan is characterized by abstaining from food and drinks from dawn to dusk, which brings both the rich and poor to share the hunger experience together, strengthening the bonds between haves and have-nots.
Buhari further noted that “as we begin these 30 days fasting season, let us 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.”
The president frowned at the way and manner some traders artificially increase the prices of their goods during Ramadan.
“I am particularly aware of the activities of traders who artificially increase the prices of their goods, including food at the beginning of every month of Ramadan.
”This kind of exploitation is against the spirit of Ramadan and the spirit of Islam,” Buhari added.
The president challenged wealthy individuals and organizations to always share food and drinks with the less fortunate members of society.
Buhari said: “While we are observing this momentous occasion in the spiritual life of Muslims, 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.”
