A cleric, Abdulkareem Adebayo, has advised Muslims to imbibe the lessons learnt during the Ramadan in order to make the fasting rite worthwhile.
Mr. Adebayo, the Chief Imam of Temidire Central Mosque in Osogbo, Osun State, made the call on Wednesday while speaking with the News Agency of Nigeria.
According to Mr. Adebayo, the Ramadan period is characterised by total submission to God, self denial as well as abstinence from vices.
He stressed the need for every Muslim to sustain the abstinence from vices while upholding the teachings of Prophet Mohammed.
“Steadfastness and total submission to Allah will make society habitable to all and devoid of war, hostility, rancor, poverty and other calamities.
“We should continue to show love, forgiveness and respect to one another while the lessons of the Ramadan must reflect in our daily lives,” he said.
He further urged the nation’s leaders to provide employment for jobless youth while providing a permanent solution to the security challenges facing the nation.
The cleric also appealed to the citizenry to support government in its efforts at transforming the country.
