Ramadan: Peller admonishes Muslims to give succour to needy


A member of the House of Representatives at the ninth Assembly, Honourable Shina Abiola Peller, has urged Muslim brothers and sisters in the country and abroad to extend acts of charity to fellow Muslims that are in dire need during this Ramadan period.

Honourable Peller made the appeal in his goodwill messages to Muslims on Monday on the commencement of the 2024 (1445 AH) Ramadan fast.

The former federal lawmaker, while reminding Muslims that every month of Ramadan presents a rare opportunity to purify one’s body and soul, also charged them to leverage the momentum of the holy month to pray for Nigeria and her leaders, adding that there is need to support them with prayers so that they can lead the country in the right direction.

His statement read,
“Best wishes to fellow Muslim brothers and sisters, home and in the diaspora, as we commence Ramadan fast for the year 2024 (1445 AH).

“One of the benefits of Ramadan is that it presents to us an opportunity to purify our mind, body and soul as well as an opportunity to reach out to the less privileged in whatever way we can. So we must put this into use as we fast, particularly considering the economic hardship that we are presently confronted with as a nation.

“Also, I urge us all to seize the opportunity of this Holy Month to pray for Nigeria and our leaders. We must support them with prayers that God purifies their souls and guides them aright so that they can lead us to a better Nigeria.

“Once again, I wish everyone of us a blessed Ramadan and pray that God strengthens in all ways and accepts all our good deeds as an act of Ibadah. Aaamin. Ramadan Mubarak.”

Peller, who holds a chieftaincy title of Ayedero of Yorubaland, represented Iseyin/Itesiwaju/Kajola/Iwajowa federal constituency at the ninth Assembly.
