The Nigerian Bar Association (NBA) Women Forum Treasurer, Safiya Balarabe has urged Muslims to “hold fast” to the tenets of the Ramadan month.

Said Balarabe: “My fellow Muslim brethren, As-salaam alaikum.

“We are witnessing yet another celebration of our Islam faith, having undergone a rigorous 30-day period of communion with Almighty Allah, wherein we fasted and prayed in deep retrospect of our lives.

“Today as we celebrate the breaking of the fast, thanking Almighty Allah for sustaining us throughout the period, we should by every means hold fast the core tenets of the Ramadan period as entrenched in the teachings of the Holy Quran and championed by the Holy Prophet Muhammad (PBUH). This is necessary especially as our dear nation is faced with myriads of social, moral and economic problems. We as Muslims must indeed be the shining light and herald a positive turnaround for our dear nation.

“I wish us all Eid Mubarak. May Almighty Allah continue to bless and protect us all the days of our lives, Ameen.”
