All praises and adoration are due to Allah the Lord of the worlds. May the peace and blessing of Allah be upon the leader of humankind, Muhammad ibn Abdullah, his family, his companions and all those who follow his footstep. We thank Allah who made us to begin this year Ramadan and has blessed us up to this extent and we ask Him to grant us His Mercy to see the end of it and count us among those whose fasting and other acts of ibadah are accepted(Aamin).
All Praises and thanks are due to Allah, the Lord of the Universe and everything the universe contains. May the Peace and blessing of Allah be upon the soul of our Noble Prophet Muhammad(saw).
The month of Ramadan is a month of devotion to Allah through abstinence from food, drink and obscene talks. It is a month in which the Qur’an is celebrated as it’s the month in which the Qur’an was revealed as a guidance to mankind. Many meritorious duties are enjoined on Muslims in order to maximize the benefits of the month. Among such meritorious duties is charity. The Prophet Muhammad is reported as the most generous of all people…and when Ramadan came he would become even more generous such that he became like the blowing wind’.[ Sahih al-Bukhari].
There is a distinct lack of leadership right across all levels of the Nigerian society. There is really little or nothing to inspire hope under the present system because statecraft is at an all time low. As it were, there is a near-absence of governance in the country, while influence peddlers and power mongers are having a field day exploiting everything in a manner that threatens our collective future like an active volcano.
