As Muslims faithful enter into the last 10 days of the holy month of Ramadan, the Jama’atu Nasril Islam (JNI) has reminded them to increase their spiritual efforts to gain the mercy of Allah.

The JNI in a statement by its Secretary General, Professor Khalid Abubakar Aliyu, implored Muslims to intensify their kindness in alms giving to the poor, the needy, the orphans and the handicapped in the society, especially that many families are just living beyond the poverty line.

Hence, he said, “We must also pray for an overturn of such maladies. Muslims are therefore, reminded of the Zakatul Fitr (Ordained Food and/or Almsgiving at the end of Ramadan Fasting), which is supposed to be given out to the needy in the last three days of Ramadan or in the early hours of ‘Eid-el-Fitr day before the commencement of the ‘Eid prayer.”

“The Jama’atu Nasril Islam (JNI) under the leadership of His Eminence, the Sultan of Sokoto and President-General, uses this medium, to beseech Allah (SWT) in order to facilitate for us observing the remaining last nine or ten days successfully. May He also strengthen our faith in Him and relieve Nigeria of its trying moments. Aamin.

Nigerian Muslims are once again called upon to maximally put to use these last ten days of Ramadan by reciting more of the Glorious Qur’an.

“They must use the increased rendition of the Qur’an not only in understanding it better, but in living in accordance to its tenets and guidance, which invariably facilitate the attainment of Taqwa – being the cardinal objective of the institutionalisation of fasting. Therefore, the spirit of observing daily obligatory Salawat (prayers), the Tarawih and Tahajjud, (emphatically recommended night prayers) should be sustained in these days and beyond.

“Similarly, Muslims are implored to intensify their kindness in alms giving to the poor, the needy, the orphans and the handicapped in the society, especially that many families are just living beyond the poverty line. Hence, we must also pray for an overturn of such maladies. Muslims are therefore, reminded of the Zakatul Fitr (Ordained Food and/or Almsgiving at the end of Ramadan Fasting), which is supposed to be given out to the needy in the last three days of Ramadan or in the early hours of ‘Eid-el-Fitr day before the commencement of the ‘Eid prayer.”

While wishing Muslim faithful Allah’s pardon in these sacred days and after, he prayed that Allah accepts all acts of worship during the Ramadan fasting and urged Muslims never to return to abominable acts after the Ramadan fasting.

He reiterated JNI’s call to the Muslim faithful to intensify prayers for the country, requesting Allah’s special intervention against the tide of economic recession, poverty and hunger, as well as the nagging insecurity challenge bedevilling Nigeria.
