The traditional ruler of Opeki town in Mosan Okunola Local Council Development Area of LagosÂ State, southwest, Nigeria, Chief Buhari Abatan Adeleye has enjoined Muslim faithful toÂ emulate prophet Muhammed who was the messenger of Allah.
Adeleye, in a Ramadan message, said every Muslim should endeavour to keep the good deeds andÂ teachings of the exercise and show love to one another not only during Ramadan but everydayÂ since love is the foundation of any relationship in life.
According to him, the purpose of bringing Muslims together is to inculcate in them what theyÂ were taught during Ramadan and ensure that they donâ€™t deviate from them.
â€œI advise Muslims not to go back to bad hasbits because they realised the habits were badÂ and they stopped them during the month of Ramadan.Â Ramadan gives people the opportunity toÂ stay away from sin and this should continue even after the exercise so that God can continueÂ to listen to their prayers,” he added.
He urged Muslim brethren to use the remaining few days to continue to pray for the GovernorÂ Fashola-led administration in the state and re-commit themselves to Allah, prioritiseÂ religious and moral matters and humbly identify themselves with the less privileged.
