Show love beyond Ramadan — Islamic cleric

The Muslim Ummah has been charged to continue to show love to others and render selfless service to humanity beyond the holy month of Ramadan.

This charge was given by an Islamic cleric, Iman Sarafadeen Babatunde during a Ramadan Tafseer and Award Presentation Programme, organised by Safeenatus-Sa'adah Association of Nigeria, Ile Adana's Compound, Obalende, Gbonmi, Osogbo, Osun State capital.

The popular Osogbo based Islamic Cleric however charged political office holders to govern with the fear of God, saying they would account for all their deeds.

He urged public office holders to imbibe honesty in their ways to foster progress and development in the country.

He also charged Nigerians to be diligent, selfless in rendering services of humanity with a message that they would account for their deeds in the hereafter.

According to the cleric, electorate have fulfilled their promise by casting their votes, saying politicians should do their own part as well, by fulfilling their electoral promises.

"I want to charge the Muslim Ummah to continue to show love to others and render selfless service to humanity beyond the holy month of Ramadan.

“Beyond Ramadan, we must also show the attitude of giving at all times; we must touch the poor and we must touch our people. 

"Also, Nigerian leaders should always have it at the back of their minds that whatever they do, they will surely account for it. We have filled our obligations as electorates by voting, they too should fulfill their electoral promises. They should know that position is ephemeral."

He, however, advised wealthy Nigerians to continue to show gratitude by assisting others and exhibiting total submission to God’s commandments at all times.

Chairman of the Ramadan Tafseer and Award Presentation Programme, Ayobami Abdulrofiu Agboola expressed gratitude to Almighty Allah for the grace to witness the holy month of Ramadan.

Agboola, who emphasised on the need to always be thankful to God said: "It was a time to give gratitude to God for the grace to be part of the intense spiritual renewal and emerging as a better being. 

"Remember, not all those who started the month were given the grace to finish it. 

"Alhamdullilah. There were others who could not have the grace to fully celebrate the day as a result of one impediment or the other."
