As the Muslims all over the world celebrate Eid-el-Kabir, Daman of Lokoja, Alhaji Sulaiman Muhammed Baba, has urged Muslims in the Lokoja Emirate to emulate the resilience, patience and steadfastness as well as absolute faith in Allah, as exemplified by Prophet Ibrahim.
The called was contained, in a statement he personally signed and made available to newsmen in Lokoja on Tuesday.
Baba said the festival which is symbolised by slaughtering of rams as commanded by Allah, should be used to further foster unity and spread love in the state, and Lokoja Emirate council in particular.
Daman, who noted that the festival is a significant one in the tenets of Islamic faith, called on the faithful of the religion to engage in moderate celebration across the state.
He further urged Muslims to remember those who don’t have and share the merriment with them.
“Eid-el-Kabir is a significant one in the tenets of Islamic religion. It is symbolised with slaughtering of ram as commanded by Allah and exemplified by Prophet Ibrahim. As Muslims all over the world celebrate this great festival, I congratulate our Muslim brothers,” he said.
