Governor of Osun, Adegboye­ga Oyetola, has felicitated with Muslims in the state and around the world on the com­mencement of the holy month of Ramadan.

The governor’s message was posted on Saturday on his offi­cial Facebook page.

Oyetola, who noted that fasting in the month of Rama­dan is one of the five pillars of Islam, added that the month provides a unique opportuni­ty for Muslims to strengthen their faith in Allah and spread kindness in the land.

He said: “Let’s be remind­ed that the essence of fasting in the month of Ramadan, as Allah noted in Qur’an 2 vs 183, is for us to attain taqwa (piety). We should, therefore, endeav­our to make the most of this month by strengthening our commitment to the service of our creator, Allah and human­ity.

“As we embark on this spir­itual exercise, I urge all of us to be our brothers’ keeper. Let those who Allah has endowed with more resources remem­ber those in need. We should all endeavour to increase our acts of kindness and generosity by showing love and extending hands of support to the poor and the needy, as it was the usual practice of our beloved Prophet Muhammad (SAW).

“Furthermore, let’s take ad­vantage of the month of Rama­dan to intensify prayers for the security, peace, progress and development of our dear State and country. I pray to Allah to answer our prayers and accept all our acts of worship in this blessed month and reward us all abundantly. Amin.”Rama­dan Kareem!”, Oyetola con­cluded.
