Muslims have been advised to continue the good deeds and imbibe the teachings of the month of Ramadan.
The traditional ruler of Olowora town in Ikosi-Isheri Local Council Development Area, LCDA, Lagos State, South West, Nigeria, Chief Sulaimon Ogungbeye gave the admonition at this yearâ€™s eid-el-fitri prayer at Olowora praying round.
According to him, â€œall what Ramadan has taught us, they should continue to observe it so as to continue to receive Allahâ€™s blessing,â€ he charged.
Chief Sulaimon urged Muslims not to forget the teachings of the blessed month and lived by its teachings, even after it has left us.
He said Ramadan is a special month when all sins are forgiven and blessings increase.
â€œObviously this month of Ramadan has established itself with us as a praise raiser in that we obtain a lot of grace and gifts from friends and well wishers during this time,â€ he said.
He urged Muslims to desist from any form of immoral acts and live by the teachings of the Ramadan.
â€œAll the indulgences in habits like drinking excessively, adultery, fighting, keeping malice, back-biting, stealing, fraudulent practices which you have neglected or rejected during the month of Ramadan, you must make sure you donâ€™t go back to them again,â€ he said.
