The Sultan of Sokoto and President General, Jama’atu Nasril Islam (JNI), His Eminence, Alhaji Muhammad Sa’ad Abubakar III, has urged Nigerian Muslims to patiently persevere with the economic downturn and intensify in their prayers during the coming Ramadan fasting. 

Speaking in a statement signed by the JNI Secretary-General, Prof. Khalid Abubakar Aliyu during the weekend to herald the forthcoming Ramadan, the Sultan said Muslims should engage in several good deeds to enable them get huge reward from Allah during the fasting season.

According to the statement, “His Eminence, Alhaji (Dr.) Muhammad Sa’ad Abubakar, the Sultan of Sokoto and President-General, JNI felicitates with the Muslim Ummah on the forthcoming Ramadan (1445AH/ 2024). The month of the Glorious Qur’an, the month of Qiyamul-Layl (standing in the night for prayers), the month of Du’a (supplication), and Dhikr (Allah’s remembrance), and of course the month of charity and generosity, the month of spiritual self-evaluation and the month of sacrifice and empathy.

“This year’s Ramadan fasting is coming at the eve of many aggravating economic challenges with so many uncertainties. While the political leadership in Nigeria is implored to be very merciful, just as the Prophet (SAW) was more merciful and generous in the blessed month. Muslims are reminded that with every hardship comes relief and ease. Patience is central in difficult times, as Allah (SWT) certainly hears, sees and responds to the prayer of His impoverished servants.

“Muslims are called upon to seriously intensify prayers for economic prosperity of the Nigerian state and the citizens, as well as the restoration of law and order – by extension security and peace, and above all piety. Ramadan is the month wherein the night of decree is witnessed, also known as the night of destiny and majesty. Thus, we are expected to perform all spiritual acts associated with Ramadan, the very best we could and soul-search our respective selves over our undertakings.

“We also urge government most especially the Office of the National Security Adviser and Director-General, Department of State Security, to as a matter of national interest and stability do more to prosecute all perpetrators of heinous crimes against humanity, taking into account recent most unfortunate abductions at Ngala IDP camp, Borno state, GSS Kuriga and Kuriga Primary School in Kaduna state, as well as take appropriate action against informants and their cohorts.”
