Eid-el-Kabir: Hon Adekunle Balogun Greets Muslim Faithful.

...urges them to emulate Prophet Ibrahim's resilience, patience, steadfastness
As the Muslims all over the world celebrate Eid-el-Kabir, Hon Adekunle Balogun has urged Muslims in the state to emulate the resilience, patience and steadfastness as well as absolute faith in Allah, as exemplified by Prophet Ibrahim.

He added that though the country is going through a trying period, the Eid-el-Kabir should serve as an opportunity to supplicate and seek the face of God, for restoration and healing.

Hon Adekunle Balogun, who noted 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.

"I want to urge them to emulate the resilience, patience, steadfastness and absolute faith in Allah, displayed by Prophet Ibrahim, when he was commanded by Allah to fulfil his covenant by sacrificing his son, Ismael.

"Though Allah asked the Prophet to slaughter his son, He replaced the son with a ram, in response to Ibrahim's total submission to Allah's will and commandments. Let us therefore use this period to seek the face of Allah in surmounting the present socioeconomic situation in our country.
