Eid-el-Fitr NAHCON Felicitates with Muslims

The National Hajj Commission of Nigeria (NAHCON) has facilitated with Muslim Ummah in the country on Eid-el-Fitr.

NAHCON Chairman, Alhaji Zikrullah Hassan, said this on Friday in a Sallah message in Abuja.

Hassan prayed that almighty Allah accept the fasting of the Ummah as an act of worship.

”On behalf of board members, management and entire staff of NAHCON, I sincerely congratulate the Muslim community all over the world for this day.

”It is our prayer and hope that we indeed are among those who have reaped from the abundant benefits of this glorious month.

”Eid-el Fitr is not just a time for celebration; it is a period that calls for renewed vigour towards sustaining the virtues of Ramadan.

”The lessons of Ramadan encourage Muslims to watch over the less privileged, be constant in prayer, ponder over the verses of the Holy Book of guidance: Al-Qur’an, shun immoralities, and to persist in many other acts of kindness,’’ he said.

Hassan prayed to almighty Allah to guide Muslim faithful to continue on the noble path.

”Eid-el Fitr 2020 is coming with a difference under the global threat of COVID-19.

”I reiterate my earlier calls to all Muslims to respect Federal Government’s restriction on congregational worship.

”Certainly, respect to constituted authority is respect to The Creator,” he said.

Hassan added that the restrictions of movement occasioned by the COVID-19 pandemic and other preventive measures were for the general good of humanity.

”COVID-19 pandemic has changed global calculations on matters of engagement, creating numerous uncertainties.

”This uncertainty hovers over possibility of Hajj 2020 taking place as well.

”I commend the kingdom of Saudi Arabia for its huge investment in tackling the spread of the pandemic in the holy land, which will be of benefit to the Muslim Ummah.

”I once again reassure our teeming 2020 Hajj hopefuls from Nigeria that once Saudi Arabia makes clear its decision on the Hajj, NAHCON shall reveal the plans it has designed for either of the eventualities,” he said.
