Umbrella body of Nigerian Muslims, Jama’atu Nasril Islam (JNI) has felicitated with the Nigerian Muslim Ummah for the successful commencement of Ramadan fasting last Thursday, June 18. “It was indeed gratifying, that Allah (SWT) made the commencement in unison –Alhamdulillah for His grace,” JNI Secretary General, Dr. Khalid Abubakar Aliyu, said in a statement issued yesterday in Kaduna.”

JNI called on Nigerian Muslims “to appropriately utilise the spirit of Ramadan by being more God-conscious through being punctual in the observance of the five daily prayers congregationally, and the Taraweeh, frequent recitation of the Glorious Qur’an, and continued remembrance of Allah (SWT).”

“Likewise, Muslims are called upon to fervently pray for the restoration of peace, stability and security in our dear country, Nigeria. Similarly, state governments and well to do individuals are called upon to extend benevolent gestures, such as alms giving and supports to the millions of IDPs spread across the country, most especially those in the North East. This is the most appropriate time they need such assistance,” the statement further said.

According to JNI, “Ramadan being the month of Tafseer (Exegesis) of the Glorious Qur’an, respected Mufasseerun (scholars engaged in the Exegesis of Glorious Qur’an) are once more urged to abide by the JNI Tafseer Guidelines. In addition, they are as well implored to fear Allah, the Most High and conduct their respective Tafseer sessions in line with the Qur’an and Sunnah of the Noble Prophet, using courteous language and kind words. They should as well shun bad preaching during the Tafseer sessions.

“Indeed, Ramadan is a month of self restraint, patience, servitude and dedication to Allah, the Most High, hence we must collectively do so to earn Allah’s pleasure, forgiveness and mercy in this blessed month. Procrastination in performing good deeds is the enemy of man, therefore we must be more dedicated to Allah's worship now and beyond. There is no better period than the Ramadan.

“JNI also uses this medium to urge leaders at all levels to fear Allah (SWT) in discharging their responsibilities, so as to attract Allah’s ease against the present economic challenge facing our dear country.

“Once more JNI wishes all Muslim faithful an accepted Ramadan fast, Amin.”
