The Ministry of Chieftaincy and Religious Affairs has extended its goodwill message to the Muslims in the country for a happy and successful celebration of Eid ul-Fitr on Monday, May 2, 2022.
A statement issued by the Ministry urged the Muslims to celebrate the day with moderation and with peace to preserve the purpose of the Eid devoid of any incident.
Eid is celebrated after the successful fasting of abstinence from food and other unholy activities during the month of Ramadan.
The holy month of Ramadan is a blessing to those who yearn for the acceptance of the Creator and who in obedience have fasted to acquire piety and discipline. This period of unquestioning restraint strengthens the believer’s resolve to adhere to the teachings of Allah with unwavering loyalty.
Muslims throughout the world have for one month, willingly refrained from food, drink and other acts that may invalidate their fast.
Those who participated have no doubt emerged from the holy month of Ramadan with a stronger character and with the ability to subject their desires and emotions to their will.
The essential lessons of Eid-ul-Fitr encourage Muslims to make sacrifices and to reflect on their lives and the ways in which they could live for the benefit of their family, community and the nation.
